Method Name does not work

Method Name does not work

Method Name does not work


I tried the following codes sent to me by itsmyjob (it worked for him on both V5R12SP4 and V5R13).
Somehow, I cannot change the Name.
First, it didn't work on V5R11SP5, I then tried it on V5R12SP6,and it still didn't work for me.
It always fails at: Solid1.Name="GiveNewNameHere"
with the error:  the Method Name failed.

I wonder if somebody can try this on your CATIA? or please tell me why it cannot work in my environment?
I installed the V5R12 base code + Service pack SP6. Are there any additional utilities that require in this case.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Sub CATMain()
Set partDocument1 = CATIA.ActiveDocument
Set part1 = partDocument1.Part
Set bodies1 = part1.Bodies
Set body1 = bodies1.Item("PartBody")
Set shapes1 = body1.Shapes
Set Solid1 = shapes1.Item("Solid.1")


RE: Method Name does not work


I just check again... it reaaly worked for me with R12 SP4 HF14.

Don't have R13 at work, i'll check later.

RE: Method Name does not work

Hi Eric,
Thanks a lot for your quick respond.
We just tried on V5R13, but it does not work either.

It appears that something is not done correctly from my end.
Do you have any suggestion for me to verify (that our systems/environments are compatible) from here?
