I can get drafts to open silently, although its a little wonky, but assemblies and parts always open with a ui -
Dim oASM as AsssemblyDocument = oDOCS.Open(AsmPath, 8)
Dim oPAR as PartDocument = oDOCS.Open(ParPath, 8)
Am I misunderstanding something or is this "feature" just not working?
Thanks in advance.
I think it should be working.
I learnt about that option years ago and didn't test it much.
Today I found a thread in this forum fom Jason Newell referring to this blog post talking about opening files silently.
Maybe you can get some answers there...
Thats exactly where I was looking originally. It seems like it only works (barely) for drafts now, parts and assemblies still open visibly regardless of the extra "8"
On MP4 if it makes a difference at all.
I am traveling this week so I'm not at my normal dev machine with 2019. When I get back, I will do some testing and see what results I get and report back.
Regarding the mentioned blog post and ensuing conversations, it's one of my all time favorite. Such a good discussion. Someone needs to follow up on that IR. <-- Me
