Autoballoon a drawing view in Pro Toolkit

Autoballoon a drawing view in Pro Toolkit

Need support for autoballooning a drawing view in ProToolkit through the vb api.

Proposed syntax:  IpfcView2D.AutoBalloon(autoBalloonOptions)

Absolutely this is needed but I would push this topic a little further.  The current functionality of the BOM balloons is limited to the context of a 2D drawing (repeat region).  However the correct "Find Number" really belongs on the assembly which can subsequently be pushed into Windchill.  So really control over the 2D BOM balloon functionality is "ok" but as users and programmers we need a more robust solution for the "Find Number" issue.  We need to step back and really try to understand what the business/use case is for "Find Numbers" and how they relate to the data management systems (Windchill).  Therefore I'm not sure that we can suggest a syntax or function definition but we can surely identify the business need.
