Generate Configuration Values Example (C#)

This example shows how to copy card control variable values from one configuration to another.

NOTE: If using the .NET Framework 4.0 primary interop assembly provided with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, see Using .NET Framework 4.0 in Stand-alone Applications.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
//    a. Click File > New > Project > Visual C# > Windows Forms Application.
//    b. Type Files_CSharp in Name.
//    c. Click Browse and navigate to the folder where to create 
//       the project.
//    d. Click OK
//    e. Click Show All Files in the Solution Explorer toolbar and expand 
//       Form1.cs in the Solution Explorer.
//    f. Replace the code in Form1.cs with this code.
//    g. To create the form, replace the code in Form1.Designer.cs with this code.
// 2. Add EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll as a reference (right-click the project
//    name in the Solution Explorer, click Add Reference, click 
//    Assemblies > Framework in the left-side panel, browse to the top folder of 
//    your SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional installation, locate and click 
//    EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll, click Open, and click Add).
// 3. Add Microsoft.VisualBasic as a reference (click Framework in the left-side panel, 
//    click Microsoft.VisualBasic, click Add, and click Close).

// 4. Right-click EPDM.Interop.epdm in References, click Properties, and set 
//    Embed Interop Types to False to handle methods that pass arrays of 
//    structures.
// 5. Check out a file that has a data card with two or more configurations.

// 6. Click Debug > Start Debugging or press F5.
//
// Postconditions: 
// 1. Displays the Copy Control Values to Configurations dialog box.
//    a. Select a vault view.
//       Folder is set to the root folder. 
//    b. Select a file that has a data card with two or more configurations.
//    c. Displays the data card.
//    d. Click Copy Control Values.
//       Copies the value set in Preconditions step 5 to all configurations.

// 2. Close the dialog box.
// 3. Inspect the control values in all of the configurations of the data card.
