InterPart variable link creation from API

Hi Guys,

 

if it's already discussed, maybe my search strategies were wrong, BUT

 

when we create links between part's variables through UI, its a quite straightforward process, and ends up with a formula, kind of

 

u"@'C:\\path\\to\\the\\referenced\\part.par'!'123a'"

 

Could somebody explain, where that part after exclamation mark comes from, or, in other words, how could I create references to variables of other parts from API?

 

Thanks, regards,

András Kovács

as I suppose after hanging around in the docs, it's going to be an OLE link to a specific variable. Its still a question, how to get such a reference from API???

Fineally, there are

 

CopyToClipboard ()

EditFromClipboard()

 

methods for an item of Variables collection  (and NOT  for a variable object!!!) which are designed to do this job --- through the OS clipboard.
