Check if drawing needs to be updated.



I have written a tool in c# which perform some operations on large amount of drawings.

Its working fine, thanks to help which I have received on this forum Smiley Happy

But now I got new requirement from users, to validate drawings before I perform more operations on them.

Precisely I need to know if drawing needs to be updated (update views command) or not.

I know how to update them automatically but that is not the case, I need to know just if drawing needs to be updated or not and show that info to user.


Does such property exist ?

I was told that its indicated by gray box around element on drawing if its need to be updated, so in theory it should be possible to get that.


Thanks a lot for any help.

Re: Check if drawing needs to be updated.

You must check each DrawingView on the sheets with the property:


This specifies whether or not the drawing view is up to date with respect to the 3d model it references.
