Difficulty in running program

Difficulty in running program

Difficulty in running program

Hello Everyone,
I have one combobox which i populated with DefaultGenerativestyle and inheritance_3D.
Then I have a command button that selects views( front view, back view , left view, isometric view,etc) and populate listbox with the name of the view.

I crated one more command button named run on userform ...
What I want is when I select DefaultGenerativeStyle on combobox and select a view or two(front view, left view) then those view's View style should change to default generative view style when I click on run.

I know that I can use if function but it does not seem to work.

Any help will be appreciated.


RE: Difficulty in running program

show us the code


RE: Difficulty in running program

Thankyou for replying...
For Combobox I used
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
With cmb_SelectStyle
.AddItem "DefaultGenerativeStyle"
.AddItem "Inheritance_3D"
.AddItem "R17_GraphicReplacement"
.AddItem "ShellExpCmd_DrwTemplate"
End With

cmb_SelectStyle.Value = "DefaultGenerativeStyle"

End Sub

To Select the View I used

Private Sub ViewSelect_Click()

Dim drawingDocument1 As Document
Set drawingDocument1 = CATIA.ActiveDocument

Dim InputObject(0)
InputObject(0) = "DrawingView"

Dim DrwSelect As Object
Set DrwSelect = CATIA.ActiveDocument.Selection


Dim Status
Status = DrwSelect.SelectElement2(InputObject, "Select View", False)

For i = 1 To DrwSelect.Count

Dim DrwView
Set DrwView = DrwSelect.Item(i).Value

ListBox1.AddItem (DrwView.Name) 'To get the view in the Listbox1



End Sub

I want to use the run button to change the view style

I tried recording macro for the run button but its not working...
I have to use generative behavior it seems like..
Dim drawingViewGenerativeBehavior1 As DrawingViewGenerativeBehavior
Set drawingViewGenerativeBehavior1 = drawingView1.GenerativeBehavior

Set drawingViewGenerativeBehavior1 = drawingView1.GenerativeBehavior
