EPDM: Add file references without showing in Bill of Material?

Question asked by Steven Soeder on Jul 7, 2015

I'm adding file references programmatically and I don't see a way to specify whether or not I want to show the references in the BOM, which is checked yes by default.

Here is a snipped from my working code.  The references are added, but I don't necessarily want them shown in the BOM.  How can I tell EPDM to uncheck this option?


            CustomRefs = TheVault.CreateUtility(EdmUtility.EdmUtil_AddCustomRefs) 'CustomRefs is declared earlier as type "IEdmAddCustomRefs"
            For Each inFile As String In inRefFiles
                    ParentFile = TheVault.GetFileFromPath(inFile)
                    ParentFolder = TheVault.GetFolderFromPath(Left(inFile, InStrRev(inFile, "\")))
                    With ParentFile
                        If Not .IsLocked Then
                            LockFlag = True
                            .LockFile(ParentFolder.ID, TheCommand.mlParentWnd, CInt(EdmLockFlag.EdmLock_Simple))
                        End If
                    End With

                    CustomRefs.AddReferencesPath(ParentFile.ID, ReferenceFiles.ToArray)
                    ReturnFlag = CustomRefs.CreateTree(0) 'Must create the reference tree first before we can show the dialog or create the references
#If CONFIG = "Debug" Then
                    ReturnFlag = CustomRefs.ShowDlg(TheCommand.mlParentWnd)
#End If

                    If ReturnFlag Then ReturnFlag = CustomRefs.CreateReferences()
                    If ReturnFlag Then TheVault.RefreshFolder(ParentFolder.LocalPath)
                    If Not ReturnFlag Then Throw New Exception("ERROR: Could not create the file reference(s) on " & ParentFile.Name & "." & vbNewLine & _
                                "Check to ensure that files being created by the template are NOT checked in by the template.  " & vbNewLine & _
                                "If still having problems, contact the EPDM administrator.")
                    If LockFlag Then ParentFile.UnlockFile(TheCommand.mlParentWnd, "System: Added reference(s) for " & String.Join(";", ReferenceFiles.ToArray) & " created by " & TheTemplateName, 0)
                    'reset for the next loop
                    ReturnFlag = False
                    LockFlag = False
                    ParentFile = Nothing
                    ParentFolder = Nothing
                Catch ex As Exception
                End Try
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString, Application.ProductName, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation)
        End Try

(Note: I realize IEdmAddCustomRefs2 has superceded IEdmAddCustomRefs, but at this time I see no reason to change my code as I don't need to enter quantity info)
