iLogic partslist filter, parts list filter

Hi d_great_ice,


I'm not aware of a way to set the parts list filter programatically, but what I've done in the past is to set up a parts list style that has the filter pre-set in that style, and then change the parts list to use that specific style.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,


'assumes a drawing document is active.
Dim oDrawDoc As DrawingDocument
oDrawDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument
'Set a reference to the active sheet.
Dim oSheet As Sheet
oSheet = oDrawDoc.ActiveSheet
'set a reference to the first drawing view on the sheet. Assumes it's not a draft view.
Dim oDrawingView As DrawingView
oDrawingView = oSheet.DrawingViews(1)
'define the insert point
Dim oPlacementPoint As Point2d
oPlacementPoint = ThisApplication.TransientGeometry.CreatePoint2d (27#, 20.625#)
'create the parts list
Dim oPartsList As PartsList     
oPartsList = oSheet.PartsLists.Add(oDrawingView, oPlacementPoint)
'set parts list to a specific layer
oPartsList.Layer = oDrawDoc.StylesManager.Layers.Item("Visible (ANSI)")
'set parts list to a specific style
oPartsList.Style = oDrawDoc.StylesManager.PartsListStyles.Item("Material List (ANSI) with Filter")
