EdmRect structure; bounding rectangle of the area in the window that will trigger the mouse hover event
ID, login name, or full name of the user for which to display information in the popup window (see Remarks)


See the IEdmUserMgr8 examples.


In the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM user interface, whenever the mouse hovers over a user name, a popup window displays information about the user. The popup window displays until the mouse moves off the area containing the user name. Call this method to display a popup window when the mouse hovers over a user name in a Windows form.

If oUserID contains a full name that is not unique, the user to display is randomly selected by the system.

IEdmUser10::SetUserDataEx describes how to update the information displayed in the popup window.

Call IEdmUserMgr8::CreateUserPicture if you want to display the picture of a user in a Windows form.

Return codes: 

  • S_OK: The method successfully executed.
  • E_INVALIDARG: One or more of the arguments are invalid.
  • E_EDM_NOT_LOGGED_IN: You must log in to the vault before calling this method.
