How to duplicate the functionality of pressing the F2 button in .NET? I have several commands that write a fair bit of data to the command line, including one that lists individual segments of civil 3d objects and I would like to make the command line appear in a similar fashion to the list command.
I'm trying to find a way to add a custom button to my ribbon that will launch a global rule or form using VB. I know of a way using VBA but I want to get away from VBA. I'd much rather create an add with VB and use that.
I am trying to write a macro for a button that when I press, it goes to a certain folder on a server. Normally when you click on the "open" button, it takes you to the last file location. I want that to be ignored an goes to a certain folder.
I have created an "addin" to monitor the "SAVE" & "NEW" button press on Inventor.What is the possibility of AutoDesk including this feature to the next release, or better still, creating a "patch" so that inventor can be upgraded to do it automatically, without the need to write an "addin"?
If the user presses the "SAVE" button, AutoDesk Inventor would automatically look to see if a macro called "OnSave" exists. If it does, it "runs" the macro, if it does not exist, it works exactly as Inventor does now. This also would work in a similar way when pressing the "NEW" button.
I am making an animation in Inventor Studio. I have created all my sequences for fading and constraint animations, and now I only need to move the camera around my assembly while zooming in and out with focus on the animations.
The way I have done it so far, is as following: Created a camera (Camera1).Set my view where I wanted the camera to start.Rightclick on Camera1 and set camera to view.Then go in a few seconds on my timeline, move my view to a new area and finally "Add camera action". I've done this a couple of times with success, but now I can't do it again.
As soon as I move my view to another area, and press "Add camera action", it does as intended, but now it zooms out, making the animated area small and hard to see. I want it to be zoomed in on a detailed area, but it's changing the view to the whole assembly.
I'm trying to write a program in C# to automate ballooning from a BOM.The routine must read the BOM and for every row it highlights in all the views the corresponding component.Then the user must be able to manually draw a balloon or balloons to the highlighted items.
When done the next row of the BOM is called, etc.I can choose to start with a BOM from our PDM system or the Inventor BOM, partlist or drawingBOM
I tried different ways but I get stuck on it.I even tried to select the nodes in the browser and called oNode.doselect, but then I can't get the proper type for the selected items to go further?
When I try to create a custom ribbon cable I get a message that reads:
"The cable and harness library is being edited by another user or is marked as read only. The Cable and Harness Library will be opened in read-only mode. No changes can be made to the cable and harness library, but wires and cables can still be inserted into the harness assembly."
In my project file I made "use style library" to = Read-Write

I'd like to format the memory stick that Inventor was shipped on. (Don't need it anymore) But when I tried to format the stick I got a error "The disk is write protected". Is it not possible to format the disk? I rather reuse it than throw it in the thrash..
I wrote a small script in python to write dxf files out. I want to add this to a button on the ribbon. I got that sorted out and can get my button to appear where I want it. I am having trouble calling the script from the button though.
The API tells me that the button has an OnExecute() event that I should listen for to call my script. I have been searching on how to do that from python but I haven't had any luck.
Is it possible to write multiple prompted entry fields down in a single pass? As it is now, you can see the taskbar reporting as it writes down each line.
Essentially i've got 6 different fields i'm trying to write down using code like shown below:
If oTB.GetResultText(oTitleBox1) <> Me.Title1.Value Then Call ThisApplication.ActiveDocument.ActiveSheet.TitleBlock.SetPromptResultText(oTitleBox1, Title1.Value)End IfIf oTB.GetResultText(oTitleBox2) <> Me.Title2.Value Then Call oTB.SetPromptResultText(oTitleBox2, Title2.Value)End If
Just wondering if there's a way it can be written down in a single pass to save time or if it's a limitation of prompted entry text.
I included a VB code in our drawing template, but then I get the "Warning: You have a non-empty VBA project.." message. If I copy the code into iLogic, I just get an error message. Why it runs fine as a separate macro, but doesn´t work in Inventor, or how I can include the code into the template? URL....
I am looking for a way to log out of vault from within Inventor using iLogic codes. I have created an iLogic rule that automates export an assembly drawing and all sub component drawings. In my code, I have suppressed all Inventor prompts but I do not have a way to suppress Vault prompts. I can manually log off from vault and run this rule without any problems. However, if I forget to do so, I am stuck responding to update requests from vault and check out requests constantly for each and every file.
