Suggestions and Requests / Get the currently open EA using automation
« on: June 26, 2003, 01:32:41 am »
Is it possible to change the functionality of the automation interface so that the currently running instance of EA can be accessed, rather than having to start a new instance ? So for example, in VB, rather than doing this :

   Set  MyRep = CreateObject("EA.Repository")

you could do this :

   Set MyRep = GetObject("", "EA.Repository")

This would allow you to work in the EA window on your model, and then run some script or whatever that uses the automation interface, without having to close the file you are working on each time you want to run your script (I hope.)

Looking at the underlying database for EA files, I've noticed that there is an 'effort' field. My queston is how to populate this field from within EA. Does anyone know how to do this?

General Board / How to get the currently open EA using automation
« on: June 25, 2003, 09:45:38 am »
How do I access the instance of EA that is already open using automation ? Is this possible ? The only examples I've seen, create a new instance of the application, then load a file and then access it. I would like to access the file that I already have open in the instance of the application that has already been started. How can I do this ?
