Can anyone point me in the right direction on this one...?

I have a SolidWorks drawing open and a drawing view selected.  I need to read the Assembly in that Drawing View and read some of it's Custom Properties.  I'm doing this with VB.NET.

Found the Answer myself on this one in the SolidWorks Forums.  Here it is:

Option Explicit

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim swSelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr
Dim swView As SldWorks.View
Dim swViewModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Sub main()

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager
Set swView = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject5(1)
swView.ReferencedDocument.FileSummaryInfo

End Sub
