Example

Remarks

You can only use this method to set properties on the PropertyManager before the page is displayed or while it is closed. See IPropertyManagerPage2::Show2 and IPropertyManagerPage2::Close.

 

To follow the SolidWorks standards when designing a new PropertyManager page, it is a good idea to use IPropertyManagerPage2::AddGroupBox or IPropertyManagerPage2::IAddGroupBox and IPropertyManagerPageGroup::AddControl or IPropertyManagerPageGroup::IAddControl to add controls for the page inside group boxes.

 

When you specify swControlOptions_SmallGapAbove for the Options parameter, a gap, smaller than the typical gap, is used between a new control and the previous control.
