How to access current workspace?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm trying to traverse the current workspace to collect information about the tools and menu items.

Unfortunately, I have not yet found a way to do so. I tried using IWorkspaceFile interface, but all attempts failed.


I tried


 VCOMPtr<VectorWorks::Workspaces::IWorkspaceFile> pwf(VectorWorks::Workspaces::IID_WorkspaceFile);
   TXString workspace_name;


VCOMError e_open = pwf->Open(workspace_name,fsRdPerm);


but e_open returned 1 and successive calls trying to access the menu bar also didn't work (null pointer returned by IWorkspaceFile::GetMenuBar).


What mistake did I make? How can I get access to the current workspace?


Thanks for any help,


Stefan Bender
