Benefits and Description

A new Parametric Foundation Classes (PFC) based Visual Basic API is available in Wildfire 4.0. Users versed in Visual Basic programming can use this new API to automate and customize Pro/ENGINEER from Visual Basic.NET applications and Visual Basic macros in applications like Microsoft Word, Excel or Access.

The Visual Basic API:

Users already familiar with Visual Basic will find this API easier to use than less familiar APIs. Users may apply this API to transfer information between Pro/ENGINEER and other Windows applications with Visual Basic APIs.
