Get or set status (open or closed) of 'navigator window'
sometimes I want to hide Pro/E or Creo's 'navigator window' in my applications.
With 'navigator' I mean the (in most cases) left window of Pro/E or Creo that contains the model tree, file browser and favorite browser.
Did someone here in this forum manage how get the navigator's status or does anyone know a command (API, trail, mapkey) to open (or close) the navigator?
What I already tried: mapkey or trail stuff record the open/close action correctly - in the mapkey or trail file there is a 0 or a 1 recorded for open/close. But when you execute the mapkey or trail file later there is no difference if you pass a 0 or a 1. Both switch the navigator to the other state (open or close).
So with a mapkey or RunMacro() in Toolkit I can open or close but at the end I don't know if my command does an OPEN or a CLOSE.
Thanks for any ideas.
