// Get the Part Type in question in some way, in this case from a given Part SID IswPartType partType = _broker.FindPartTypeWithSID(partSid); /* Open the SelectItem dialog: * -selectedItem = the item returned from the dialog, * -_currentItem = the owner of the partType. For example an item where *the selectedItem shall be added as a Part. * It is used for Add Part grids. * -partType = The Part Type intended to be used for adding the *selectedItem to _currentItem. * This limits the options in the dialog to the Item types valid for that *Part Type. */ if (!_host.GetDialogs().SelectItem(out IswItem selectedItem, null, _currentItem, null, partType)) return; // Perform an action, for example adding the selected Item as a part to the _currentItem. _currentItem.AddPart(partSid, selectedItem);

string itemSid = "AR4P"; /* Open the SelectItem dialog: * -selectedItem = the item returned from the dialog * -itemSid= The Item Type SID to look for */ if (!_host.GetDialogs().SelectItem(out IswItem selectedItem, itemSid)) return;
