Trimble Connect for Desktop GetAttribute()

Question asked by Kelvin Ng on Oct 16, 2020

I use Tekla Structures to create a simple model with 1 column named as "COLUMN" and another named as "100". I then export it to IFC and bring it over to Trimble Connect for Desktop.


I use the following to read the object properties:


IEnumerable<AttributeSet> MyAllAttributeSet = MyModelObject.GetAttribute("Product Name", null);


It has no problem when the value is alphanumeric such as "COLUMN". However, it fails when the value is numeric such as "100". I get the error message:


System.InvalidOperationException: 'Connection could not be used. Please confirm that Trimble Connect for Desktop is running and then try to reconnect.'


Is this a bug?
