Copy iProperties from IPT to IDW

640 Views, 7 Replies
05-19-2010 10:40 AM
We have a need to copy all of our iProperties from the model into the
IDW. I would like to do this on save of the file to make it seemless to the
user. We need to do this to help satisfy our document management software,
synergis adept. In Adept they have what they call a library card that gets
populated from the iProperties and since an IDW has no information in the
iProperties, it's all driven from the part, there is no information on the
library card. Adept has compensated for this by allowing the user to copy
those iProps after a file is signed in but it is a manual proccess. You
have to selecet the file in Adept and fire off the command, it works but
prone to being forgotten. So what I am asking for, since I am a hacker with
vba at best, is if anyone has some sample code they might be willing to
provide to get me started. Anything you have would be greatly appreciated,
thanks.

Hi Corey,

Help actually covers iProperties pretty well. You are going to need to make
a addin, with a onSave event. You can't do it in VBA.

I am not sure, but is there a 100% direct correlation between part/assembly
files iProps and drawing iProps? If there is, you should just be able to
iterate through the part/assembly's iProps, and copy the values to the
drawings iProps... If not, you need to deal with the differences somehow.

Do all your drawing only contain views of one part or assembly?

No, they contain views of multiple files but the first inserted view is the
one that defines the title block information, which is what I would like to do
for this as well.  The first view inserted will define the parts used to
update the IDW iProps.  My skill level is not very high in this kind of
thing as of yet so this one might be beyond my abilities.  I have been
looking to find any kind of code that does something similar but have not found
anything in the help files or elsewhere.  With a piece of code that I know
what it does I can usually pick it apart and figure out the functionality and
then modify it for my own ends.  I guess what I really need to do is take
some more classes on vb to get this figured out.

Well it's going ok so far, at least I am
learning a bit but I ran into a problem.  I am trying to copy specific
iprops from one file to the other and I have all but the "Company" field
working.  I have no idea whay that one won't copy as I can copy other
fields from that tab.  Anyone have any ideas?

CopyiPropsToIDW()

Cory,

 

here is a start. 

 

If you want just want someone to write
it,  I am always looking for little jobs.  feel free to contact
me.

 

 

Public Sub iProps()

 


Dim oDoc As DrawingDocument
Set oDoc =
ThisApplication.ActiveDocument

 

Dim oviewdoc As Document
Set oviewdoc =
oDoc.Sheets(1).DrawingViews(1).ReferencedDocumentDescriptor.ReferencedDocument

 

Dim oViewPropSets As PropertySets
Set oViewPropSets =
oviewdoc.PropertySets

 

Dim oViewPropSet As PropertySet
Dim oViewProp As Property

 

Dim oDocProp As Property

 

 

 

For Each oViewPropSet In oViewPropSets

 

    For Each oViewProp In
oViewPropSet
   
    On Error Resume
Next
       
oDoc.PropertySets(oViewPropSet.InternalName).ItemByPropId(oViewProp.PropId).Value
= oViewProp.Value
    If Error
Then
       
Err.Clear
    End If
   

    Next

 

Next


End Sub

No, they contain views of multiple files but the first inserted
view is the one that defines the title block information, which is what
I would like to do for this as well.  The first view inserted will
define the parts used to update the IDW iProps.  My skill level is
not very high in this kind of thing as of yet so this one might be
beyond my abilities.  I have been looking to find any kind of code
that does something similar but have not found anything in the help
files or elsewhere.  With a piece of code that I know what it does
I can usually pick it apart and figure out the functionality and then
modify it for my own ends.  I guess what I really need to do is
take some more classes on vb to get this figured out.

 

 

Hi
Corey,

Help actually covers iProperties pretty well.  You
are going to need to make
a addin, with a onSave event.  You
can't do it in VBA.

I am not sure, but is there a 100% direct
correlation between part/assembly
files iProps and drawing
iProps?   If there is, you should just be able to
iterate
through the part/assembly's iProps, and copy the values to the

drawings iProps... If not, you need to deal with the differences
somehow.

Do all your drawing only contain views of one part or
assembly?

So
I guess no one does this at all currently?

We
have a need to copy all of our iProperties from the model into
the
IDW.  I would like to do this on save of the file to make it
seemless to the
user.  We need to do this to help satisfy our
document management software,
synergis adept.  In Adept they
have what they call a library card that gets
populated from the
iProperties and since an IDW has no information in the
iProperties,
it's all driven from the part, there is no information on the
library
card.  Adept has compensated for this by allowing the user to
copy
those iProps after a file is signed in but it is a manual
proccess.  You
have to selecet the file in Adept and fire off
the command, it works but
prone to being forgotten.  So what I
am asking for, since I am a hacker with
vba at best, is if anyone has
some sample code they might be willing to
provide to get me
started.  Anything you have would be greatly
appreciated,
thanks.

Corey
