Using the properties of a drawing view it is possible to hide or show the hidden lines with one click.
Using the API I cannot find this function.
I only way I can find is to loop through all the model members and change the property ‘SolidEgdeDraft.ModelMember.ShowEdgesHiddenByOtherParts = false’. However, in a large assembly it takes ages to loop through all the modelmembers. When I do it using the UI it is just one click and very fast.
Does somebody know how to do this in a fast way?

Thank you for your reply. I found the correct property which works.
There seems to be the property 'ShowEdgesHiddenByOtherParts', which seems to be the obvious one . No idea why I didn't see it the first time. Shame on me..
This (piece of old fashion VBA) code works:
Public Sub Test() Dim objApp As SolidEdgeFramework.Application Dim objDoc As SolidEdgeDraft.DraftDocument Dim objSheet As SolidEdgeDraft.Sheet Dim objDrawingViews As SolidEdgeDraft.DrawingViews Dim objDrawingView As SolidEdgeDraft.DrawingView 'Get SE en open goede document Set objApp = GetObject(, "SolidEdge.Application") If Err.Number = 91 Or Err.Number = 429 Then Err.Clear Set objApp = CreateObject("SolidEdge.Application") End If 'Set Set objDoc = objApp.ActiveDocument Set objSheet = objDoc.ActiveSheet Set objDrawingViews = objSheet.DrawingViews Set objDrawingView = objDrawingViews.Item(1) 'Do it objDrawingView.ShowEdgesHiddenByOtherParts = True objDrawingView.Update 'Clean up Set objApp = Nothing Set objDoc = Nothing Set objSheet = Nothing Set objDrawingViews = Nothing Set objDrawingView = Nothing End Sub
Thank for your help!
