Copy Assembly Tree of Files Example (C#)

This example shows how to copy an assembly and its tree of reference files to a destination folder in the vault.

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.
//    a. Click File > New > Project > Visual C# > Windows Forms Application.
//    b. Type CopyTree_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 references to:
//    a. Microsoft.VisualBasic (right-click the project
//       name in the Solution Explorer, click Add > Reference >
//       Assemblies > Framework >
select Microsoft.VisualBasic).
//    b. EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll (click Browse and browse to the top folder
//       of your SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional installation, select
//       EPDM.Interop.epdm.dll).
//    c. EPDM.interop.EPDMResultCode.dll (click Browse, select
//       EPDM.interop.EPDMResultCode.dll, and click OK)
.

// 3. Add Microsoft.VisualBasic as a reference 
//    (click 
Add > Reference, select Assemblies > Framework 
//    in the left-side panel, click Microsoft.VisualBasic, and click OK).

// 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. Ensure that the vault root folder contains an assembly that
//    is checked in with its referenced parts and drawings.
// 6. Create a destination folder called New Folder in the vault.

// 7. Click Debug > Start Debugging or press F5.

//
// Postconditions: 
// 1. Displays the Copy Assembly dialog box.
//    a. Select a vault view.
//    b. Click Select assembly
//       Locate and double-click an assembly.
//    c. Click Select a destination folder.
//       1. Locate and select New Folder.
//       2. Click OK.
//    d. Click Copy tree.
//       The Copy Tree dialog shows the files to copy.
//    e. Click Copy
//       The Copying tree progress bar appears. 
//    f. Inspect the destination folder.

// 2. Close the Copy Assembly dialog box.
