    API: COUNT COMPONENTS IN ASSEMBLIES

    Omar Freites

      Hi there,

       

      Can somebody give me any suggestion with this?:

       

      Suppose that i have an assembly doc named " Test Assembly"  and contains: 4 components named "Part1", 6 components named "Part2" and 12 components named "Bolts".

       

      If I write for example:

       

      Dim sldworks as Object

      DIm part as object

       

      set sldworks= Application.sldworks

      set part = sldworks.activedoc

       

      part.extension.Selectbyid2("Part1-1@Test Assembly","component",....)

       

       

       

      I would like to know how I can obtain the number FOUR (number of components named Part1) using other method or property... (in excel would be something like this "part.extension.selectbyid2(....).count")

       

      I have tried with getcomponentcount but do not works as i want (return the number of all components in the assembly and do not support the selectbyid2 method). I know that a BOM do this automatically but i need obtain the number to do a custom bill in excel !!

       

      Thanks in advance

       

      Omar
