See Getting Started for more information.


This interface is available only if SOLIDWORKS Toolbox Browser add-in is an active SOLIDWORKS add-in.

Events are implemented with delegates in the Microsoft .NET Framework. See the Overview topic for a list of delegates for this interface.


Call ISldWorks::GetAddInObject, passing in the GUID of the SOLIDWORKS Toolbox Browser add-in type library (Registry Editor > Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{ED783340-D5DB-11d4-BD5A-00C04F019809}), to get a Dispatch pointer to the IApplication object and connect to the SOLIDWORKS Toolbox Browser.

For example, in COM:

HRESULT hres = pSldWorks->GetAddInObject("{ED783340-D5DB-11d4-BD5A-00C04F019809}" , &pDisp);
