Creo Weblink: CheckIfIsFromFormat(int) not working

Hi there,

 

I am running a little script to replace drawing formats.

 

tables = drawing.ListTables();

for (var i=0; i<tables.Count; i++)

{

var table = tables.Item(i);

if (table.CheckIfIsFromFormat(cur_sheet) == true)

{

 

var table_sel = drawing.GetTable(i);

 

// table is from format, delete it

drawing.DeleteTable(table, false);

}

}

 

As it turns out since Creo 2.0 M100 the function CheckIfIsFromFormat(cur_sheet) always returns a "true".

 

Can anyone confirm this behavior?

 

I see two ways to fix this:

Option A: PTC imediatly fixes this bug (But I guess this is going to happen in Creo 3.0 at the earliest.)

Option B: finding a way to get the position of the current table (like: "table.IsfromSheet").

 

Does anyone know, how to get the postion of a table?

 

 

Cheers

 

Matthias

PTC - Support told me that this new behavior is intended.

To Check, if a table is from a format frame (e.g. a company's A4 template) and if a table is the one on the current sheet you want to modify, You have to alter the script above to

if (table.CheckIfIsFromFormat(cur_sheet) == true && table.GetSegmentSheet(0) == cur_sheet )

{

...things to do

}

Works with M110!

This error occurs in Version M90 as well.

M80 seems to work correct.
