Turn off the display of a file in solid edge draft

I have a macro to run in Solid Edge draft for filling in title block, revision tables etc and also adding or changing the drawing border.

When doing the drawing border bit the following steps are used -

1. Open the file containing the borders (each on a different sheet)

2. Build a list of border names and add them to a list box on a form

3. The user selects one from the list box and the graphics are copied from the file onto the

background sheet of the drawing.

4. Sheet size is then set accordingly


The problem I have is that the user can see the border file while the list box is open.

How can I turn off the display of the border file to prevent the user seeing it?


I can make the whole solid edge application invisible but that dooesn't seem a very good way of doing it.

R.D. Holland gave an answer in http://www.jasonnewell.net/forums/solid-edge-programming/4889-how-to-lock-the-screen.html#4895]this thread which could probably do what you want.
