This method requires that you implement these IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8 methods:


  • IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8::OnPopupMenuItemUpdate. When Windows attempts to select or deselect and enable or disable the pop-up menu item, SOLIDWORKS calls IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8::OnPopupMenuItemUpdate to get the state of the pop-up menu item from the add-in. Thus, IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8::OnPopupMenuItemUpdate:

    • Processes a request for the state of the specified pop-up menu item associated with the PropertyManager page.

    • Passes the state back to SOLIDWORKS.
