To delete a feature or component from a Smart Component:

  3. Call this method to open the training assembly of the Smart Component.
  4. Call ISldWorks::ActiveDoc to set an assembly document variable.
  5. To get a specific feature or component, call ISelectionMgr::GetSelectedObject6(index, mark), where mark is defined in swSmartComponentSelectionTypes_e and index is the position of the item in the selection list.
  6. Select an already selected feature or component to delete it from its selection list. If the object returned by ISelectionMgr::GetSelectedObject6 is a:

    • feature, call IFeature::Select2 to delete that feature from the feature selection list.
    • component, call IComponent2::Select4 to delete that component from the component selection list.
  7. Close the training assembly and release access to the selection lists.

To insert a feature or component into a Smart Component:

  1. Open the Smart Component in SOLIDWORKS.
  2. Call IFeature::GetDefinition on the "Smart Feature" to get the ISmartComponentFeatureData object.
