Gets a list of the most recently used files.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetRecentFiles() As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISldWorks
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetRecentFiles()
System.object GetRecentFiles()
System.Object^ GetRecentFiles(); 

Return Value

List of most recently used files (see Remarks)



Option Explicit

Sub main()

    Dim swApp               As SldWorks.SldWorks

    Dim vFileArr            As Variant

    Dim i                   As Long

    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks


    vFileArr = swApp.GetRecentFiles


    For i = 0 To UBound(vFileArr) Step 2

        Debug.Print vFileArr(i + 1) & " --> " & vFileArr(i)

    Next i

The list is returned in pairs of files.  For each pair, the first item is the fully qualified path to the file.  The second item is just the filename, as it appears in the most recent used list in the SOLIDWORKS File menu.
