I have some styles I will like to replace in some drawings
but how? I cant find any function to do this.
Do I missing some thing ?
Dim oIDWStyles As Inventor.DrawingStylesManager
Set oIDWStyles = oDrawDoc.StylesManager
Dim oldstyle As style
Dim Newstyle As style
For Each oldstyle In oIDWStyles.Styles
If oldstyle.Name = "Old style" Then
' Debug.Print oldstyle.Name & " : " & oldstyle.InternalName
For Each Newstyle In oIDWStyles.Styles
If Newstyle.Name = "New style" Then
'Debug.Print Newstyle.Name & " : " & Newstyle.InternalName
'How to replace oldstyle with newstyle
'oldstyle = Newstyle
This worked for me:
' Create the parts list and set a reference to it.
Dim oPartsList As PartsList
Set oPartsList = oSheet.PartsLists.Add(oDrawingView1, oPlacementPoint)
oPartsList.Style = oDrawDoc.StylesManager.PartsListStyles.Item("PARTS LIST PART")
Hope this helps.
You can rename it, delete it, set another style as the object default, but no direct replace that I know of.
If you set the new styles as object defaults, then you could change all elements to the active standard.
Get some coffee, it will be alright - for a Friday
Finally I got the time, to look at your suggestion.
I'm sorry I have not commented earlier, I've been on vacation.
I thought there was an easier solution.
