How can I use the SDK to open external files?

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to open a whole .vwx file through the sdk so that I can automate the testing of Vectorworks files?

I'm currently using VW2015 and we want to automate our testing before migrating to a newer version of Vectorworks.

If this isn't possible, the best course for me is to put my test cases in symbol definitions that I could automatically extract into a template file.

I'm looking forward to your suggestions....

You can use ISDK::OpenDocumentPath for opening VWX files (and ISDK::CloseDocument to close them again)

The SDK calls should already be there in VW 2015, as they are marked as VW2009 (resp. VW 2012)
