GenerateDefaultConfigValues Method (IEdmFile14)

Copies control variable data from one configuration to another for the specified drawing or file.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub GenerateDefaultConfigValues( _
   ByVal lOldFileID As System.Integer, _
   ByVal bsOldConfigName As System.String, _
   ByVal bsNewConfigName As System.String, _
   ByVal bsActiveConfig As System.String, _
   ByVal bOnlyForUpdateAllFlag As System.Boolean _
void GenerateDefaultConfigValues( 
   System.int lOldFileID,
   System.string bsOldConfigName,
   System.string bsNewConfigName,
   System.string bsActiveConfig,
   System.bool bOnlyForUpdateAllFlag
void GenerateDefaultConfigValues( 
&   System.int lOldFileID,
&   System.String^ bsOldConfigName,
&   System.String^ bsNewConfigName,
&   System.String^ bsActiveConfig,
&   System.bool bOnlyForUpdateAllFlag


ID of drawing or file that lacks properties at the configuration level
Name of existing configuration whose values to copy (see Remarks)
Name of configuration to which to copy values (see Remarks)
Name of an active drawing sheet or configuration (see Remarks)
True to copy values only for controls for which IEdmCardControl6::UpdatesAllConfigurations is set to true, false to copy values for all variables associated with this file



This method:

  • is valid only for files with data cards and multiple configurations.
  • copies control variable values from bsOldConfigName to bsNewConfigName. If it encounters a null control variable in bsOldConfigName, it takes the value from bsActiveConfig instead.

Use IEdmFile5::GetConfigurations to populate the configuration parameters.
