Property Value

True displays an error dialog, false does not


This property controls the display of error dialogs generated when an error occurs during a rebuild of a specific feature in the current SOLIDWORKS session. Use ISldWorks::GetUserPreferenceToggle or ISldWorks::SetUserPreferenceToggle to get or set swShowErrorsEveryRebuild, which controls the display of error dialogs generated when a rebuild warning error message is generated.

You can wrap the rebuild API call with the following code to suppress rebuild warning dialogs:

bValue = swApp.GetUserPreferenceToggle(swShowErrorsEveryRebuild)

swApp.SetUserPreferenceToggle swShowErrorsEveryRebuild, false


swApp.SetUserPreferenceToggle swShowErrorsEveryRebuild, bValue
