customize BOM Balloons with alternative attributes in CREO ILLUSTRATE

hello all,

 

is it possible to use in the *alternative name in a automatic balloon?

 

I mean, you can customize the sBOM tree to see "alternative name" (option / global / General / navigation / use alternative name and customize it). You can now see several value attributes like a description instead of the original sBOM name. this is very usefull when the name is like an Part code and you don't want to rename each line. 

 

but now, I would like to use what you see in sBOM in a balloon! the idea behind this, is to be able to use several balloon customizations with only one note type (i.e. sometimes I use the sBOM name, sometimes I use a custo name like a description, or a Code&Material, ...)

 

 

I found the Illustrate cusomization in user_prefs.xml:

 

<category
name="Navigation">
<preference
name="AltTextGroup1"
value=""/>
<preference
name="AltTextProp1"
value=" - Mat: "/>
<preference
name="AltTextType2"
value="2"/>
<preference
name="AltTextAttachItem0"
value="SamePart"/>
<preference
name="AltTextType1"
value="0"/>
<preference
name="AltTextProp0"
value="DESIGNATION"/>
<preference
name="AltTextVersion"
value="2"/>
<preference
name="alt_part_name_enable"
value="true"/>
<preference
name="AltTextAttachItem1"
value="SamePart"/>
<preference
name="AltTextGroup2"
value="PROE Parameters"/>
<preference
name="AltTextAttachItem2"
value="SamePart"/>
<preference
name="AltTextType0"
value="2"/>
<preference
name="AltTextGroup0"
value="PROE Parameters"/>
<preference
name="AltTextProp2"
value="PTC_MATERIAL_NAME"/>
</category>

 

but what can I use in a personnal annotation in the CalloutTemplates.xml file?

 

 

I try something like this (without success):

 

<annotation id="alternatif" hasLeaders="true">
<name>alternatif</name>
<description>nom alternatif</description>
<tooltip>nom alternatif</tooltip>
<thumbnail url="alt.png"/>
<leaders>
<line-style weight="0.13mm" color="#000000" style="DEF_SOLID" start="none" end="none"/>
</leaders>
<label canEdit="true" editOnCreation="true">
<text font="Arial" size="10pt" color="#000000">
<useproperty category="Navigation" name="AltTextProp0"/><br/>
</text>
<shape type="roundrect" border="true" fill-color="#FFFFFF"/>
</label>
<halo label="false"/>
</annotation>

 

does someone already do it?

 

Best Regards,

Ronan

I don't care anymore. With Creo Illustrate 5.0, we are able to manage easily the cuso BOM Ballon (directly from the interface).
