Reading dwl file

Hello Forum,

 

if a drawing is opened by another user, I want to retreive the name of that user. I presume that is in the dwl locking file. I I can't find any info on this topic. How do I read/extract the user name from a dwl file with .NET/c#?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

dwl files are plain text files, dwl2 files are xml ASCII files, both readable using StreamReader or a xml parser.
