What I'm trying to achive is to rename a part that is open in SolidWorks using the API. I'm using EPDM as well and the check in is done from the EPDM addin in SolidWorks. It's datacard has been modified to trigger the PostUnlock event.
The code in the PostUnlock event close the part in SolidWorks, renames the part and opens it in SolidWorks with it's new name.
When looking in the EPDM-addin in SolidWorks I can see that the file has been opened correctly, apparently, and its also checked in with it's new name. But as soon as my addin is finished doing its work, SolidWorks crash. When looking in the file vault in windows explorer everything looks fine though.
Here is my code that I'm using for renaming the file:
Select Case poCmd.meCmdType
'Connect to SolidWorks.
Dim oSolidWorksApplication As SldWorks.SldWorks
oSolidWorksApplication = GetObject(, "SldWorks.Application")
'Get file- and folder objects.
Dim oFile As EdmLib.IEdmFile7 = Nothing
Dim oFolder As EdmLib.IEdmFolder6 = Nothing
oFile = oVault.GetObject(EdmLib.EdmObjectType.EdmObject_File, ppoData(nIndex).mlObjectID1)
oFolder = oVault.GetObject(EdmLib.EdmObjectType.EdmObject_Folder, ppoData(nIndex).mlObjectID2)
'Create current file path.
Dim sCurrentFilePath As String = ""
sCurrentFilePath = oFile.GetLocalPath(oFolder.ID)
sCurrentFilePath = sCurrentFilePath.Substring(0, InStrRev(sCurrentFilePath, "\"))
sCurrentFilePath = sCurrentFilePath & oFile.Name
'New file name.
Dim sNewFileName As String = ""
sNewFileName = "12345.sldprt"
'Create full path to new file.
Dim sFullNewFilePath As String = ""
sFullNewFilePath = sCurrentFilePath
sFullNewFilePath = sFullNewFilePath.Substring(0, InStrRev(sFullNewFilePath, "\")) & sNewFileName
'Set focus to the document in SolidWorks.
Dim nError As Integer
Dim oDocument As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
oDocument = oSolidWorksApplication.ActivateDoc2(sCurrentFilePath, True, nError)
'Close the document.
oFile.Rename(0, sNewFileName, True)
'Open the file having the new name.
Dim IfileError As Integer
Dim IfileWarning As Integer
oSolidWorksApplication.OpenDoc6(sFullNewFilePath, SwConst.swDocumentTypes_e.swDocPART, SwConst.swOpenDocOptions_e.swOpenDocOptions_Silent, "", IfileError, IfileWarning)
oSolidWorksApplication = Nothing
Any thoughts of what might be wrong here???
All suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
