Pro/PROGRAM - reading input values from file

Hello to all,

 

I have a part containing simple program (I am using Pro/PROGRAM functionality). I want to read input values from file. Unfortunatelly I cannot find the description of format for such input file. PTC Help and PTC Knowledge Base didn't help... Do you have some tip or link to PTC source ?

 

I use Creo Parametric 2.0 M020.

Re: Pro/PROGRAM - reading input values from file

Hey Martin

Try this :

I assume you have the Pro/Program part ..... but I'll add it in case anyone else misses this step

In Pro/Program:

INPUT

DESIGNER STRING

ANY_NUMBER NUMBER

END INPUT

DESIGNER is a parameter of STRING type

ANY_NUMBER is a parameter of REAL NUMBER type

In the text file:

DESIGNER = "you"

NUMBER = 22.9

When you regen you get the pop-up that wants to know where the values inside the INPUT statement are coming from.

Select Read File and input the name of the text file

Voila!

Would it help to output a few files and see how they are formatted? Maybe a point file and a relations file?

Hello Jody,

thank you for your answer. Your solution works well in Creo Parametric 2.0 M020+. I wish PTC will add this information into their Help Center...

A little correction for other users:

---

Text file contents:

DESIGNER = "you"

ANY_NUMBER = 22.9

Best regards

You can put the TXT file anywhere you want, for example c:\temp\, as long as you provide the full filename (with extension) to the TXT when you are using the "Read File" option.
