Adding New SavedViewpoint Problem

150 Views, 2 Replies

Hi,

 

I am having a problem with the following code, which is failing beacuse it thinks Newvp is an unsupported type of SavedItem.

 

           

Dim Newvp AsNew Autodesk.Navisworks.Api.SavedViewpoint(doc.CurrentViewpoint)

 

Newvp.DisplayName = "Test"

 

doc.SavedViewpoints.AddCopy(Newvp)

 

How can this be, when I explicitly create Newvp as a SavedViewpoint?

 

Cheers

 

Mike

maybe you need to do smth like this:

Dim Newvp AsNewAutodesk.Navisworks.Api.SavedViewpoint(doc.CurrentViewpoint)

doc.SavedViewpoints.AddCopy(Newvp);

doc.SavedViewpoints.EditDisplayName(Newvp, "Test");
