I am new to Solidworks API. I just made my first API from the Video tutorial.
After creating the API, I used to change the extrude boss depth. but it won't rebuild automatically.It rebuilds only after closing the API window and click the rebuild icon.
I want to make it automatically as shown in this video. Please help me.
