ReloadOrReplace Method (IModelDoc2)

Reloads or replaces the current model document.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function ReloadOrReplace( _
   ByVal ReadOnly As Boolean, _
   ByVal ReplaceFileName As String, _
   ByVal DiscardChanges As Boolean _
) As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim ReadOnly As Boolean
Dim ReplaceFileName As String
Dim DiscardChanges As Boolean
Dim value As Integer
 
value = instance.ReloadOrReplace(ReadOnly, ReplaceFileName, DiscardChanges)
C# 
int ReloadOrReplace( 
   bool ReadOnly,
   string ReplaceFileName,
   bool DiscardChanges
)
C++/CLI 
int ReloadOrReplace( 
&   bool ReadOnly,
&   String^ ReplaceFileName,
&   bool DiscardChanges
) 

Parameters

ReadOnly

True if the model document is read-only, false if it is not

ReplaceFileName

Replacement model document

DiscardChanges

True to discard changes made to the current model document, false to abort operation if the model document was changed (see Remarks)

Return Value

Error codes as defined by swComponentReloadError_e

Example

Remarks

The model to reload or replace must be open in its own window frame.

 

This method does not work with models that have been opened in the background as a result of being referenced by an assembly. In those cases, first make the document visible using IModelDoc2::Visible, and then call ModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace.

 

You must call IModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace after calling IModelDoc2::ForceReleaseLocks, which detaches a file from the file system, to re-attach a detached file to the file system. If you do not call IModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace after calling IModelDoc2::ForceReleaseLocks, then you will experience problems with OLE objects (e.g., design tables). Any changes made to a file while it is detached are not preserved unless you save the file to disk before calling IModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace. Additionally if you set IModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace's DiscardChanges parameter to false and you made changes to a detached file that you are attempting to re-attach to the file system, then IModelDoc2::ReloadOrReplace will fail. DiscardChanges must be set to true to re-attach a detached file.

See ISldWorks::CloseAndReopen to perform a similar function with drawing documents.
