C API: API return error code explaination

Hi Expert,
When use the Sketchup API, SUModelCreateFromFileWithStatus can return an error code named “SU_ERROR_SERIALIZATION”, can anyone let me know in what scenarios the API will return such error code? we want to know the scenario to better understand what happens when calling this API.

Thanks.
Danny

It basically means an error occurred writing to or reading from file.

In the case of a read, it probably means that the file was corrupted or had a write error when it was written (or saved by the application.)


Here is a similar scenario (with another file write function) being discussed in the API Issue Tracker:

Thank you @DanRathbun , if the file is missing when reading (I can’t think how but just wondering if this happens), will it report SU_ERROR_SERIALIZATION as well?

Move or rename the test file and find out.
