So I have just installed ST10 and was using the new Open drawing command,
I have been using my own macro to open the drawing from a part or assembly file for some time.
In my macro if the draft is not found it automatically runs the create a new draft command to save a bit of effort.
I now also see that the new built in command uses the windows indexed links ( I think) so it fails to find the draft all of the time. So going to continue to use my own.
However the built in command does something I like , i can open the draft by just selecting the file in the tree... and not just the active document.
So I am trying to update my own!
and here I run into an issue
If the part is in the top level assembly i can find it with:-
but if its in a sub assembly i need to use :-
and using the wrong one fails so I cannot seem to test for isnothing.
Using the excellent spy i can see;
a crude way of testing.. it runs if I comment out the wrong "test" line.
I was using the OccurrenceFileName for testing but will prefer to use the OccurrenceDocument reference
for .path and .Fullname etc
The question is how should I be finding the filename / path from the selected item.
Sorry that seemed harder to explain than necessary.
Thanks for your help
