Error while Scripting SaveAs

Hi everyone,
I’ve been trying to script the „Save As“ command in Rhino Common as suggested in the earlier discussion.

I’m developing a Plug-In in C# (VS2010).

Here is the isolated Code im Runnning to export the file as a SAT file.

protected override Result RunCommand(RhinoDoc doc, RunMode mode)
        string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop);
        string fileName = "test.sat";
        path = System.IO.Path.Combine(path, fileName);

        string command = string.Format("_-SaveAs \"{0}\" _Scheme \"Default\" _Enter", path);
        //command = "-_SaveAs C:\\users\\martin\\Desktop\\test.sat Scheme Default Enter";


        RhinoApp.RunScript(command, true);

        return Result.Success;

The command string is in my case:

 -_SaveAs C:\\users\\martin\\Desktop\\test.sat Scheme Default Enter

However the Plug-In doesn’t save any file printing only in the RhinoConsole:

Command: _-SaveAs 

The funny thing:

This Python Script works:

    import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
    command = "-_SaveAs C:\\users\\martin\\Desktop\\test.sat Scheme Default Enter"
    rs.Command(command, True)

Does anyone know how to get this Code running in C#


Continuing the discussion from RhinoCommon - SaveAs:

If you want to run a Rhino command from within a RhinoCommon command, then you need to add the following attribute to the command’s class declaration:


Does this help?

Hi Dale,

thank you. That helps a lot… and it works, too :slight_smile:
