ISetIconFiles Method (IMacroFeatureData)

Sets the files for the icons for this macro feature.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub ISetIconFiles( _
   ByVal IconCount As Integer, _
   ByRef IconFiles As String _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMacroFeatureData
Dim IconCount As Integer
Dim IconFiles As String
instance.ISetIconFiles(IconCount, IconFiles)
void ISetIconFiles( 
   int IconCount,
   ref string IconFiles
void ISetIconFiles( 
&   int IconCount,
&   String^% IconFiles


Number of files for the icons
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of the names of the files for the icons (see Remarks)
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported
  • See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.


    The array contains three strings that refer to the Windows bitmap images for the regular, suppressed, and highlighted images for the custom macro feature icon.

    • Images must be Windows bitmap (*.bmp) format and be 16 pixels wide X 18 pixels high

    • Either the full pathname or only the filename can be used; for example, c:\bitmaps\icon1.bmp or icon1.bmp.

    • The first string in the array is for the regular icon bitmap, the second string is for suppressed icon bitmap, and the third string is for highlighted icon bitmap.

    If you change the bitmaps after inserting them with a macro feature into a SolidWorks document, then the new bitmaps are not displayed until you close and restart SolidWorks.
