Create Submenus in the CommandManager Example (C#)

This example shows how to create submenus in the CommandManager framework by creating individual CommandGroups for each submenu in your tree. Create a C# addin using the SOLIDWORKS VSTA C# addin template. Set up CommandManager CommandGroups in SwAddin.ConnectToSW():

 

public bool ConnectToSW(SldWorks ThisSW, int Cookie)

{

            iApp = ThisSW;

            iCookie = Cookie;

 

            iApp.SetAddinCallbackInfo2(0, this, iCookie);

 

            iCommand = iApp.GetCommandManager(iCookie);

 

            SldWorks.CommandGroup commandGroup = null;

            string title = "CommandGroup1";

            string toolTip = "Command group 1 tip";

            string hint = "Command group 1 hint";

            int position = 6;

            commandGroup = iCommand.CreateCommandGroup(CommandGroupID1, title, toolTip, hint, position);

            if (commandGroup != null)

            {

                   BitmapHandler bitmapHandler = new BitmapHandler();

                   commandGroup.LargeIconList = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.LargeIconList.bmp");

                   commandGroup.LargeMainIcon = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.LargeMainIcon.bmp");

                   commandGroup.SmallIconList = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.SmallIconList.bmp");

                   commandGroup.SmallMainIcon = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.SmallMainIcon.bmp");

                   commandGroup.ShowInDocumentType = (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeNONE;// |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypePART |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeASSEMBLY |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeDRAWING;

 

                   commandGroup.AddCommandItem2("Command1", -1, "Command1 hint", "Command1 tool tip", 0, "OnCommand1", "OnMenuUpdate", 0, 1);

                   commandGroup.AddCommandItem2("Command2", -1, "Command2 hint", "Command2 tool tip", 1, "OnCommand2", "OnMenuUpdate", 0, 1);

 

                   commandGroup.HasMenu = true;

                   commandGroup.HasToolbar = true;

 

                   commandGroup.Activate();

            }

 

            commandGroup = null;

            title = "CommandGroup1\\CommandSubGroup1";

            toolTip = "Command sub group 1 tip";

            hint = "Command sub group 1 hint";

            position = -1;

            commandGroup = iCommand.CreateCommandGroup(CommandGroupID2, title, toolTip, hint, position);

            if (commandGroup != null)

            {

                 BitmapHandler bitmapHandler = new BitmapHandler();

                 commandGroup.LargeIconList = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.LargeIconList.bmp");

                 commandGroup.LargeMainIcon = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.LargeMainIcon.bmp");

                 commandGroup.SmallIconList = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.SmallIconList.bmp");

                 commandGroup.SmallMainIcon = bitmapHandler.CreateFileFromResource("CommandManager.SmallMainIcon.bmp");

                 commandGroup.ShowInDocumentType = (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeNONE;// |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypePART |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeASSEMBLY |

//                            (int)SwConst.swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeDRAWING;

 

                 commandGroup.AddCommandItem2("SubCommand1", -1, "Command1 hint", "Command1 tool tip", 0, "OnCommand1", "OnMenuUpdate", 0, 1);

                 commandGroup.AddCommandItem2("SubCommand2", -1, "Command2 hint", "Command2 tool tip", 1, "OnCommand2", "OnMenuUpdate", 0, 1);

 

                 commandGroup.HasMenu = true;

                 commandGroup.HasToolbar = true;

 

                 commandGroup.Activate();

           }

 

           return true;

 

}
