Run Macro

This example shows how to use ISldWorks::RunMacro.

You can only:

  • Execute a Sub that takes no arguments and that is not part of a class or form.

  • Open forms from within a Sub; you cannot start a form directly.

' RunMacroMain.swp

Option Explicit

 

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim boolstatus As Boolean

 

Sub main()

 

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

 

Dim filename As String

filename = swApp.GetCurrentMacroPathName

filename = Left(filename, InStrRev(filename, "\")) + "RunMacroSub.swp"

boolstatus = swApp.RunMacro(filename, "RunMacroSub1", "alternate")

boolstatus = swApp.RunMacro(filename, "RunMacroSub1", "main")

End Sub
