Transfer the Windchill states of CAD files from UWGM to CAD client like Creo elements Direct Modeling as Windchill internal keywords but not as localized strings.
Currently the Windchill state of a model (assembly, part etc.) is transferred as a localized string while loading into a CAD client. This will lead into different messages for different languages. See Creo Elements Direct Modeling
In case of certain defined custom actions each implementation must evaluate a localized string as for
Trigger an action based on the state of a loaded CAD file
Color coding within the CAD structure browser based on state
Setting write protection based on state
Adding new models based on a Library
Adding a new standard part from a library like CADENAS or PartLibrary
Advise the user based on the state to execute an action
Not allowed to Checkout in case the model is out of date
Not allowed to Checkout in case the model is already checked out by someone else
Proposal to overcome that requirement
The UWGM has to send keywords like the Windchill internal strings (see left column in following table)
or simply by number coding e.g. in a binary system.
The required localization to display the readable value will happen on the client CAD system only with appropriate local message files.
Benefit for customer and PTC partner
Any kind of customization or third party integration has only take care about the keywords or numbers independent from the language the CAD system is running.
Stability and update process
The display of the the localized messages is done on client side and no need to transfer them from UWGM to CAD client (load and update performance)
