CommandInProgress Property (ISldWorks)

Improves performance of out-of-process applications by informing SOLIDWORKS that a sequence of API calls will be made by the out-of-process application.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property CommandInProgress As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISldWorks
Dim value As System.Boolean
instance.CommandInProgress = value
value = instance.CommandInProgress
System.bool CommandInProgress {get; set;}
property System.bool CommandInProgress {
   System.bool get();
   void set ( &   System.bool value);

Property Value

Set to True before calling the sequence of API calls, then set to false after calling the sequence of API calls


SOLIDWORKS then reduces the number of updates it makes during these calls. Use of this property only effects out-of-process applications.
