OnPreview Method (IPropertyManagerPage2Handler7)

Obsoleted. Superseded by IPropertyManagerPage2Handler8::OnPreview.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function OnPreview() As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IPropertyManagerPage2Handler7
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.OnPreview()
System.bool OnPreview()
System.bool OnPreview(); 

Return Value

True if the operations specified by your add-in executes, false if not (see Remarks)


To show a Preview button on a PropertyManager page, include swPropertyManagerOptions_PreviewButton in the Options argument of ISldWorks::CreatePropertyManagerPage or ISldWorks::ICreatePropertyManagerPage.


You can do whatever you want in response to the Preview button being clicked. Your add-in is responsible for preview handling, including keeping track of the state of the Preview button. Your add-in controls what happens when the Preview button is clicked; SolidWorks takes not action when the Preview button is clicked. SolidWorks ignores the return value because by the time the callback handler is called, the button has already changed.
