Find Revisions Using Component Example (C#)

This example shows how to find the revision numbers using the revision number component named Alpha Revision Component.

NOTE: If using the .NET Framework 4.0 primary interop assembly provided with SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM, see Using .NET Framework 4.0 in Stand-alone Applications.

 
//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
//  1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
//  2. Click File > New > Project > C# > Windows Forms Application.
//  3. Type FindRevisionsCSharp in Name.
//  4. Click the Browse button and browse to the folder where to create the project.
//  5. Click OK
//  6. Create a form similar to the form shown above and change: 
//     a. Label to VaultsLabel.
//     b. Combo box to VaultsComboBox
//     c. Button to FindRevisionsButton.   
//  7. Replace the code in Form1.cs with this code.
//  8. Replace the code in Form1.Designer.cs with this code.
//  9. Add EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll as a reference (right-click the project
//     name in the Solution Explorer, click Add Reference, click 
//     Framework in the left-side panel, browse to the top folder of your 
//     SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM installation, locate and click 
//     EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll, click Open, click Add, and click Close).
// 10. Right-click EPDM.Interop.epdm in References, click Properties, and set 
//     Embed Interop Types to False to handle methods that pass arrays of 
//     structures.
// 11. Open the Immediate window.
// 12. Switch back to the Form1.cs code window.
// 13. Click Debug > Start Debugging or press F5.
//
// Postconditions: 
//  1. Displays a dialog.
//  2. Select a vault.
//  3. Click the Find revisions that use Alpha Revision Component button.
//  4. Prints the names of the revision numbers using the revision number 
//     component Alpha Revision Component to the Immediate window. 
//  5. Examine the Immediate window.
//  6. Close the dialog.
