IEdmBatchUpdate Interface

Obsolete. Superseded by IEdmBatchUpdate2.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Interface IEdmBatchUpdate 
public interface IEdmBatchUpdate 
public interface class IEdmBatchUpdate 


This interface:

To set the values of file card variables:

  1. Access this interface by calling IEdmVault7::CreateUtility, passing in EdmUtility.EdmUtil_BatchUpdate.
  2. Call IEdmBatchUpdate::SetVar once for each variable you want to update.
  3. Call IEdmBatchUpdate::Commit to commit all variable changes.  

Before SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM 6.2, the only way to set the values of variables used in file data cards was to use the IEdmEnumeratorVariable interface which processed the variables one file and one variable at a time. This still works, but when setting the values of many variables, it is more efficient to use the IEdmBatchUpdate interface which accumulates all variables to set and then commits them all in a single operation.
