DDrawingDocEvents_FileSaveAsNotify2EventHandler Delegate (SolidWorks.Interop.sldworks)

Sends pre-notification before displaying the File, Save dialog.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Delegate Function DDrawingDocEvents_FileSaveAsNotify2EventHandler( _
   ByVal FileName As String _
) As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As New DDrawingDocEvents_FileSaveAsNotify2EventHandler(AddressOf HandlerMethod)
public delegate int DDrawingDocEvents_FileSaveAsNotify2EventHandler( 
   string FileName
public delegate int DDrawingDocEvents_FileSaveAsNotify2EventHandler( 
&   String^ FileName



Name of the saved file


SolidWorks sends this notification before it displays the Save dialog.

In the FileSaveAsNotify2 event handler, you can specify an alternate file name using IModelDoc2::SetSaveAsFileName and return S_false from the event handler to indicate that the notification is handled. If you do not set an alternative filename using IModelDoc2::SetSaveAsFileName and S_false is returned, then the document is not saved. You can omit using IModelDoc2::SetSaveAsFileName to not set an alternative filename.

You can return S_false to stop SolidWorks from proceeding with the action that caused the notification. In .NET,  you can return 1 instead of S_false.

NOTE:  Because this event is very similar to the now obsolete Drawing Doc event FileSaveAsNotify, do not listen for both notifications at the same time.

If developing a C++ application, use swDrawingFileSaveAsNotify2 to register for this notification.
