Any way to change Drawing View properties programmatically?

Specifically, I need to toggle "Show shading in drawing views" off on the drawing view properties "Shading and Color" tab.  I used Solid Edge Spy to look at the properties and methods available on the drawing view object, but didn't find what I was looking for.

 

Any ideas?

Hi Brent,

 

in the API documentation of ST4 isn't it simply the boolean property Shading of a DrawingView object?

Wolfgang,

 

That worked!  For some reason, the Shaded property does not show up in Solid Edge Spy on the DrawingView object.

 

Thanks,

Brent
