DPartDocEvents_FileDropPreNotifyEventHandler Delegate (SolidWorks.Interop.sldworks)

Pre-notifies user applications when a part is dropped from Windows Explorer into a part document.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Delegate Function DPartDocEvents_FileDropPreNotifyEventHandler( _
   ByVal FileName As String _
) As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As New DPartDocEvents_FileDropPreNotifyEventHandler(AddressOf HandlerMethod)
public delegate int DPartDocEvents_FileDropPreNotifyEventHandler( 
   string FileName
public delegate int DPartDocEvents_FileDropPreNotifyEventHandler( 
&   String^ FileName



Name of the file to use for the rest of the drop process


The part document may be replaced by the dropped file.

If developing a C++ application, use swPartFileDropPreNotify to register for this notification.

SolidWorks passes the file name of the dropped part into the event handler. The event handler can use IPartDoc::SetDroppedFileName to replace this document with a temporary document. For example, this is useful when the file being dropped is managed by a project data management (PDM) system or otherwise not accessible directly by SolidWorks. Your application (the PDM system in this example) is responsible for ensuring that the files and references are properly updated.
