CATIA Run Macro When Part is Opened

CATIA Run Macro When Part is Opened

CATIA Run Macro When Part is Opened


I need a way of running a Macro every time a part is opened.

I have written the Macro just need to find a way of running it!

The Macro checks the Rev Number the part was created in... EG V5R18 or V5R24.

Any ideas?



RE: CATIA Run Macro When Part is Opened

Like Skip said, you're posting in the wrong section, but since I'm a CATIA user - one way you can trigger a macro to run when a part opens is by using a reaction. You'll need the KWA workbench to create it and you can trigger a script to run on certain events - like onload.

RE: CATIA Run Macro When Part is Opened

Drew, I feel this is a step in the right direction!

Firstly I can't find an onLoad event? Where would I find this?

And Secondly, is there any way I can apply this to CATIA globally instead of applying a reaction to a part?
