CompConfigProperties4 Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Sets the properties for the selected component in the specified configuration.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CompConfigProperties4( _
   ByVal Suppression As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Solving As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Visibility As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal UseNamedRefConfig As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal RefConfigName As System.String, _
   ByVal ExcludeFromBOM As System.Boolean _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim Suppression As System.Integer
Dim Solving As System.Integer
Dim Visibility As System.Boolean
Dim UseNamedRefConfig As System.Boolean
Dim RefConfigName As System.String
Dim ExcludeFromBOM As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.CompConfigProperties4(Suppression, Solving, Visibility, UseNamedRefConfig, RefConfigName, ExcludeFromBOM)
System.bool CompConfigProperties4( 
   System.int Suppression,
   System.int Solving,
   System.bool Visibility,
   System.bool UseNamedRefConfig,
   System.string RefConfigName,
   System.bool ExcludeFromBOM
System.bool CompConfigProperties4( 
&   System.int Suppression,
&   System.int Solving,
&   System.bool Visibility,
&   System.bool UseNamedRefConfig,
&   System.String^ RefConfigName,
&   System.bool ExcludeFromBOM


Suppression state of this component as defined in swComponentSuppressionState_e
Solving state of this component as defined in swComponentSolvingOption_e
True if you want to show the selected component in the graphics display area, false
if not
Not used
  • If a non-empty string is specified, then the referenced configuration of the selected
    component is changed to this named configuration

  • If an empty string is specified, then the default referenced configuration is used

True to exclude the configuration from the BOM, false to not

Return Value

True if setting the properties of the selected component in the specified configuration
is successful, false if not


You can use configurations to save certain display characteristics with each of the
assembly components and retrieve that configuration in the future. SolidWorks applies
the settings that you specify with this method to the active configuration.

You cannot set a component to lightweight.

Known reasons for failure of this method include:

  • Invalid suppression state specified.
  • Not preselecting a component.
