Using NX9 and TC 10
How would you go about changing the flags for the different status? currently a checkered flag shows for released, inactive, and obsolete.
Note, I am not a TC admin, I'd just like to present some "go here, do this" to our admin.
Also, can you make it impossible to add a component that is obsolete or inactive, to an assembly in NX? or at least pop up a warning?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can certainly add a custom icon for the each status type. For which, Your admin has to do the following things.
1) Create an custom icon based on the different status (It should be 16 x16 pixels and in PNG Format)
2) Right click on the status type in BMIDE and add the icons to project.
3) Deploy the template.
4) Have to create a custom configuration file add to each rich client installation manually and reset the registry / create a .jar file add it to the OTW Script.
Secondly, I am not sure if we could get a warning. But with the access manager you can restrict to see the obsolete revisions of the items from the view and searching. That way one cannot add it to the assembly.
Hope this helps!
I suspect there are other OOTB flags, like the checkered flag? red, yellow, etc.
I would request you to check \\portal\plugins folder for the jar file for icons.
If not available then create one as written below:
it should contain com\teamcenter\rac\common folder create a folder icon and copy paste your png files.
create a 'common_user.properties' file which should contain these 2 lines for every status
after the jar file is updated. Start TC Prompt and commit portal\registry\'name'.bat file
make sure while using TC Prompt all the processes regarding the Teamcenter are killed.
Hope this might help you.
