    List type custom property change problem

      Image "SW Model View"

      I have a problem were I cannont update a custom properties on the right side of the picture that are drop down lists, such as property "Material Form" (Variable name "MaterialForm-2013"). They are lists style custom properties with custom values allowed, so if one clicks in the box one can enter any text one wants or select a value from the drop down list.


      Image "SW Custom Properties View"

      This shows the custom properties and thier variable names.


      Below is the code I have used to try and edit the custom properties.

      • It works for "Thisckness-2013"
      • It does not work for "MaterialForm-2013"


      Does anyone know how I can get it to work on the lists style properties?


      SW 2010 X64 SP5.0




      Sub main()


      Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

      Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

      Set swConfig = swModel.ConfigurationManager.ActiveConfiguration

      Set swCustPropMgr = swConfig.CustomPropertyManager


      ' Set custom Properties

          swCustPropMgr.Set "MaterialForm-2013", "Profile"

          swCustPropMgr.Set "Thickness-2013", Chr(34) & "Thickness@Sheet-Metal1@" & swModel.GetTitle & ".SLDPRT" & Chr(34) & "mm"


      swModel.ForceRebuild3 True


      End Sub
