SetPromptFilename Method (ISldWorks)

Obsolete. Superseded by ISldWorks::SetPromptFilename2.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub SetPromptFilename( _
   ByVal FileName As System.String _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISldWorks
Dim FileName As System.String
void SetPromptFilename( 
   System.string FileName
void SetPromptFilename( 
&   System.String^ FileName





The filename specified is only used if the SOLIDWORKS events PromptForFileNameNotify or ReferencedFilePreNotify returns false. This implies that you cannot specify an initial filename for SOLIDWORKS to use in the standard dialog. Instead, you must provide your own file dialog and return the filename after the user selects it.
