Get Property problems in VBA Code

Get Property problems in VBA Code

Get Property problems in VBA Code

I have some code for properties that looks line this:

    Dim i As Integer
    Debug.Print "*** PROPERTIES FOR oProp1 ***"
    For i = 1 To oProp1.Count
        Debug.Print i, oProp1(i).Name, oProp1(i).Value
    Next i
    Debug.Print "*** PROPERTIES FOR oProp2 ***"
    For i = 1 To oProp2.Count
        Debug.Print i, oProp2(i).Name, oProp2(i).Value
    Next i
    Debug.Print "*** PROPERTIES FOR oProp3 ***"
    MsgBox oProp3.Count
    For i = 1 To oProp3.Count
        Debug.Print i, oProp3(i).Name, oProp3(i).Value
    Next i
    Debug.Print "*** PROPERTIES FOR oProp4 ***"
    For i = 1 To oProp4.Count
        Debug.Print i, oProp4(i).Name, oProp4(i).Value
    Next i

The code produces the results below.  The problem is in the oProp3 section, where there are 29 items.  For some reason, the code locks up after item 13 and doesn't produce item 14, which is supposed to be then Description.  Instead, I get a run-time error of:

Run-time error '91':
Object variable or With block variable not set

Thanks for any help you can provide...

RE: Get Property problems in VBA Code

I'm not an Inventor expert, so this is just a guess (I wonder why I'm even in this forum...). Anyway, just looking at your code, it looks like the oProp4 object is not initialized. Is there some code earlier on in the form of:

Set oProp4 = Inventor.something-or-other

or something like that?

Its a bit strange since oProp1 to oProp3 work. Hopefully its not a bug in the API.
