DPDMDocManagerEvents_PreInsertDocumentEventHandler Delegate (SolidWorks.Interop.swbrowser)

   ByVal fileName As System.String, _
   ByVal ToolboxID As System.Integer _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As New DPDMDocManagerEvents_PreInsertDocumentEventHandler(AddressOf HandlerMethod)
public delegate System.int DPDMDocManagerEvents_PreInsertDocumentEventHandler( 
   System.string fileName,
   System.int ToolboxID
public delegate System.int DPDMDocManagerEvents_PreInsertDocumentEventHandler( 
&   System.String^ fileName,
&   System.int ToolboxID


Path and file name of the document to insert
ID is calculated for copied part creation; otherwise 1


See Getting Started for more information.


Works like the SOLIDWORKS FileDropPreNotify event for the SmartFastener. If a file with the same name is already open in SOLIDWORKS, Toolbox uses that file and does not send the PreInsertDocument notification.

Before returning from this handler, you must call IPDMDocManager::SetManagedDocument. The PDM application can use this method to direct the Toolbox Browser application to work with a file other than the PDM-managed document, which may not be writable. If the file does not exist, SOLIDWORKS generates an error and aborts all operations. If this file name is null for copied parts, SOLIDWORKS creates a new part. For all other insertions, SOLIDWORKS uses the original file name when an empty file name is specified.
