JLink: Get all instances in a model (family table)

Hello,

I want to load a model with JLink with "The generic" or with an other instance (1). For this see load_modell.png. In addition (2) I want to get all instances of a model.

(1) Load of a model with "The generic" or with an other instance:
My JLink program for this problem:

public class JlinkPrototype {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		
		AsyncConnection connection;
		Session currSession;
		ModelDescriptor proeModelDescriptor = null;
		Model proeModel = null;
		String proe = "C:/Program Files/PTC/Creo 4.0/F000/Parametric/bin/parametric.exe";
		// proe = proe + " -g:no_graphics -i:rpc_input";
		
		try
		{
			System.loadLibrary("pfcasyncmt"); 
			
			connection = pfcAsyncConnection.AsyncConnection_Start(proe, null);
			currSession = connection.GetSession();
			
			String modellName = "MY_MODEL";
			String instance = "MY_INSTANCE_01";
			// instance = null;
		    proeModelDescriptor = pfcModel.ModelDescriptor_Create(ModelType.MDL_PART, instance, modellName); 
		     
			currSession.ChangeDirectory("C:/tmp/test_part_family_tables");
			proeModel = currSession.RetrieveModel(proeModelDescriptor);
			
			proeModel.Display();
			
			// connection.End();	    
			
			
		} catch (Throwable x) {
			x.printStackTrace();
		}
    }
}


When I load the model with "The generic" I set variable instance=null.
When I load the model with an instance I set variable e.g. instance="MY_INSTANCE_01".  
In my opinion this works fine.

(2) Now I want to get all instances of my model. When I load my model in Pro/E-GUI manually with instance "The generic", I can get all variants using tools-->Family Tables (see load_generic_gui.png).
I think, I can get from this so loaded model all variants wirh JLink.
Now I load my model with my JLink programm. For this I set the variable instance=null. Unfortunately now the menu Tools -> Family table is deactivated (see load_generic_jlink.png), so I do not get the listed instances.

So my question: How can I get all instances of my model with JLink?

Thanks in advance for your tips
Thomas

Re: JLink: Get all instances in a model (family table)

Even if tools -> family table is disabled, I can find all instances with:

...
proeModelDescriptor = pfcModel.ModelDescriptor_Create(ModelType.MDL_PART, null, modellName); 
...
FamilyMember familyMember = (Solid) proeModel;
FamilyTableRows familyTableRows = familyMember.ListRows(); for (int ii = 0; ii < familyTableRows.getarraysize(); ii++) { FamilyTableRow familyTableRow = familyTableRows.get(ii); String instanceName = familyTableRow.GetInstanceName(); System.out.println("instanceName = " + instanceName);
} ...

Hello...
how can I implement the code to save all prt instances?
Thankful..
