IVersionHistory Method (ISldWorks)

Gets a list of strings indicating the versions in which a model was saved.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IVersionHistory( _
   ByVal FileName As System.String _
) As System.String
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISldWorks
Dim FileName As System.String
Dim value As System.String
 
value = instance.IVersionHistory(FileName)
C# 
System.string IVersionHistory( 
   System.string FileName
)
C++/CLI 
System.String^ IVersionHistory( 
&   System.String^ FileName
) 

Parameters

FileName

Full path name of the model for which to get the version history

Return Value

Array of strings of the version history

Remarks

This information is retrieved from the file on disk, not from the open document.

There is one array entry for each major release of the SOLIDWORKS software in which the document has been saved. The format for each entry is a major release code followed by one or more minor release codes separated by commas:

 <major release code>[<minor release code>]

- or -

 <major release code>[<minor release code>,<minor release code>...]

where <major release code> equals a number that remains constant through a major release of the SOLIDWORKS software. For example, the following values are returned based on the corresponding major SOLIDWORKS version:

SOLIDWORKS Release

Version Number

44

SOLIDWORKS 96

5000

 SOLIDWORKS 2013

6000

 SOLIDWORKS 2014

7000

 SOLIDWORKS 2015

8000

The <minor release code> equals the year and day of manufacture of a saving version (for example, 1997/320).

To get the size of array needed by this method, call ISldWorks::IGetVersionHistoryCount. If the file is not found or an error occurs, then SldWorks::IGetVersionHistoryCount returns 0, and this method returns VT_EMPTY.

To get the version history of a document that is currently open, use IModelDoc2::VersionHistory or IModelDoc2::IVersionHistory.
