it seems, that m_ServiceManager.ItemService.UpdateItemsFromFiles(new long[] { editItem.RevId } );

doesn't work with a .dwf file.

the result is an exception (error code 0)

the log file is attached.

there is no exception with an underlying .ipt-file for example.

Re: UpdateItemsFromFiles

Hello Erika,


As a potential workaround to this issue, I would suggest using the ItemService.PromptComponents() method instead. The code below should have the same effect as a call to ItemService.UpdateItemFromFiles():


wsManager.ItemService.AddPromoteComponents(new long[] { dwfFile.Id });

DateTime time;

long[] promoteComponents = wsManager.ItemService.GetPromoteComponentOrder(out time);

wsManager.ItemService.PromoteComponents(time, promoteComponents);

ItemsAndFiles dwfItemsAndFiles = wsManager.ItemService.GetPromoteComponentsResults(time);
