Getting and setting the sketch name (as well as other objects)

Top  Previous  Next

Here is how to get and set the sketch (and other objects) name:

 

   CComPtr<PlanarSketch> pSketch;

   ...

   CComBSTR bstrSketchName ;

   pSketch->get_Name (&bstrSketchName) ;        //Get the sketch name

   ...

   pSketch->put_Name (CComBSTR(L"Tube_Base")) ; // Set the name

 

 

Many many objects in the Inventor API have names, like workplanes and parts etc. You can usually interrogate and change the names with the methods shown above.
