UserControl Property (ISldWorks)

Gets and sets whether the user has control over the application.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property UserControl As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISldWorks
Dim value As System.Boolean
instance.UserControl = value
value = instance.UserControl
System.bool UserControl {get; set;}
property System.bool UserControl {
   System.bool get();
   void set ( &   System.bool value);

Property Value

True if the user has control over the application, false if not (see Remarks)



If the SOLIDWORKS application is started by your program, then the SOLIDWORKS application closes when your program ends. However, if you pass control of the SOLIDWORKS application to the end-user, then it remains running after your program ends.

Setting this property to true causes the SOLIDWORKS application to run in the foreground and be visible. Use ISldWorks::UserControlBackground if you want to run the SOLIDWORKS application in the background and not be visible.
