If you create a text box, but do not enter text in it, an empty text box indicator is displayed on the sheet. This makes it possible to locate and delete text boxes without content.
in special case (such as legacy application which uses empty text boxes as place holders) one might want to hide this indicator , can it be done by configuration or by code without changing the text box value?
Solved! Go to Solution.
When in a drawing, go to Solid Edge Options. At the bottom of the General Tab is a control for this --> Show Empty Text Boxes. This is a global setting I believe on how you want to handle these.
Maybe you just need to scroll down on the dialog. Its at the bottom of the Options dialog, general tab when in Draft. Stretch the dialog or scroll down to see it.
You're right -- its not on your screen cap, but is on mine. What version are you using? I think this may have been new in ST6? Here it is -- right between enable... and prop text...
Well cr*p. This is one of the hazards of being on the baker side of developing software -- hard to keep track of what went in where. Apparently this ability to suppress empty boxes is NEW IN ST7 (which I have personally been running since August). So I don't have a handy ST6 solution for you.
Sorry for the confusion. But I think you have managed to squeeze out of me the first new feature announcement of ST7! This is surely a record!
Dan , thank you very much for keep exploring the problem and not giving up on me on something clearly would seem crazy (specially when you look at the feature and can't understand why I can't see something that should be right in front of me ) at least now I know what I'm up against and will try and find solution with the customer to the problem.
So thanks a lot and hope to see ST7 coming soon
