Copy a file by clipboard to Solid Edge

Hello Edgers,


I try to copy a file via clipboard to Solid Edge, like Standard Part or copy within Solid Edge does it.

Question is there any documentation of the format of the data in the clipboard?

I want to create theses data by my owm tool. Attached the data from the clipboard which is written there by the Standard Parts Partfinder.


Any hints are welcome


Greetings from Germany

Copy a file by clipboard to Solid Edge

Hello Markus,


simply place the path of the Solid Edge document as text onto the clipboard, then you can paste the file in the assembly environment of Solid Edge.


        My.Computer.Clipboard.SetText("Path to your Solid Edge file")


Some clipboard related information is provided in this]article.
