Search publication elements in part

Search publication elements in part


Is there a way to search&select only elements that are also published through VBA script?

Thank you!

RE: Search publication elements in part

Yes, you can access publications and what they reference.
MyPart and k+1 are my own definitions, but the syntax is as follows
PubName = MyPart.Parent.Product.Publications.Item(k + 1).name
Set PubRef = MyPart.Parent.Product.Publications.Item(PubName).Valuation


RE: Search publication elements in part

Thanks for reply but I would like to search only published features inside a part. For example: only search (inside a part) all planes that are publicated...

Best regards,

You need to be more specific on what you are looking for.

RE: Search publication elements in part


try to use this:

CODE -->

Dim publications1 = Part1.Publications
            Num_publications = publications1.Count
            For b = 1 To Num_publications

                Dim publication1 = publications1.Item(b)

                Dim pubRef As Reference

                Dim PubName As String = Left(publication1.Name, 4)
                Dim Publication =
