Link Levels of Detail via API

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to use the 'Link Levels of Detail' command via the API ?

 

I can activate the command by using the CommandManager

 

oContDef = ThisApplication.CommandManager.ControlDefinitions.Item("AssemblyBonusTools_LinkLODsCmd")
oContDef.Execute

 

But the command then requires a UI selection - I want to select the iLogic LOD.

 

I've tried using the CommandManager.PostPrivateEvent but to no avail

 

Does anybody know if this is possible?

 

Thanks

 

Tom

On second thoughts I can just iterate through the assembly and set each occ to the iLogic LOD.
