Can't find Property for dft-view flattened !

Is there no property for a drawing view, modelnode, part...

whatever from inside the draft

where I can get back any information about

the view is a flattened psm or the "normal" modelview....?


I'm writing a custom text to the view.CaptionDefinitionTextPrimary

(sapbom number and material thickness) and I'd like

to also add some words to the view, if it's a flattened view,

am I blind - maybe: feeling a bit ill today Smiley Surprisedops:

Hi Linus,


the property DrawingView.ViewType could return what you are searching for:


[i]ViewType Property

Solid Edge Draft Type Library > DrawingView Object : ViewType Property


Returns an integer to indicate the model options on the DV: 0 = Design body, 1 = Simplified body, 2 = Flat sheet metal or Simplified by config.

Property type

Read-only property[/i]
