I don't get it why it doesn't work ..
In VBA I have the following code that works fine:
Dim oDoc As DrawingDocument Set oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument Dim oSheet As DrawingViews Set oSheet = oDoc.ActiveSheet.DrawingViews Dim oCount As DrawingViews Set oCount = oSheet Dim oItem As DrawingView Set oItem = oSheet.Item(1) MsgBox ("Scale: " & oItem.ScaleString)
Trying this in C# (connecting with VS and also have a reference to "Autodesk.Inventor.Interop.dll"), I get stuck at the point where I want the "Item(1)". The Object Drawing View doesn't know any "Item". Looking in the object catalog there is only a "this[int]" between Count an Type. I guess the "this[int]"-stuff is what I'm looking for, but I don't have any idea how to handle with this.
Does anyone of you guys have an idea??
Solved! Go to Solution.
You're on the right track. In C#, you use list[index] instead of list.Item(index).
So, for your case, it would be something like:
DrawingDocument oDoc = inventorApplication.ActiveDocument as DrawingDocument;
DrawingView firstView = oDoc.ActiveSheet.DrawingViews;
Note that indexing is still 1-based, and not 0-based.
