set specific sheet

Good morning to all,

I am creating a customization to save as pdf from solid edge but i have a problem:
in my dft I have 2dModel and sheet1 but when i save a pdf my result is the 2DModel's pdf and not Sheet1.

I thought two possible way:
* select active the sheet1
* deactive a 2D Model

I tried by VB code to realize one of two possibilities but i don't have a good result.

Can you help me?!

Thank you very much

The following screenshot is from Spy for Solid Edge . It looks like you can toggle the 2D model view via SheetWindow -> Display2DModelSheetTab.

Re: set specific sheet

Sure thing. Here is the code.


Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.Linq
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices
Imports System.Text

Namespace DraftTest
    Friend Class Program
        Shared Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            Dim application = DirectCast(Marshal.GetActiveObject("SolidEdge.Application"), SolidEdgeFramework.Application)
            Dim sheetWindow = TryCast(application.ActiveWindow, SolidEdgeDraft.SheetWindow)

            If sheetWindow IsNot Nothing Then
                sheetWindow.Display2DModelSheetTab = False
            End If
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace
