I have created a property manager that has 2 selection boxes and a button. The selection boxes are limited to only edges and single selections each selection box.
My work is in VB.net.
FYI that combo box PIN 1 and PIN 2 is just there for a future use and does not participate with the code in question.
I have played extensively with variations of the following within the "Add Pins" Button subroutine:
Dim swApp As SldWorks
Dim swModel As ModelDoc2
Dim swSelMgr As SelectionMgr
Dim swFeat As Feature
Dim the_edge As Edge
Dim instance As IModelDocExtension
Dim Append As Boolean = False
Dim Mark As Integer = 0
Dim Callout As Callout = Nothing
Dim SelectOption As Integer = 0
Dim value As Boolean
swApp = GetObject("", "SldWorks.Application")
swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager
instance = swModel.Extension
'Dim test As Integer = pm_Selection.SelectionIndex(0)
swFeat = CType(pm_Selection.GetSelectedItems(0), Feature)
value = swFeat.Select2(False, 0)
swFeat = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject6(0, -1)
Please dont read too much in the code as it has changed a million times and I am not sure if what you see above even works in its current state.
I have tried to utilize the property manager selection boxes to select the edges in Solidworks and then grabbing them there but I am at a complete loss.
Simply put, how do I programmatically utilize each of the items in the selection boxes to perform other functions like measuring them, create planes, points etc?
Your help is greatly appreciated!
