This method is intended for user preferences that can be toggled.

This method is equivalent to interactively setting system options in the SOLIDWORKS software.

To use this method, choose one of the available items from the swUserPreferenceToggle_e enumerationPass true to turn the item on, and false to turn the item off.

For example, the following command forces the SOLIDWORKS application to use the Search Folders when loading files:

swapp.SetUserPreferenceToggle swUseFolderSearchRules, True
