Your application needs to perform the equivalent of RMB on a Drawing view > Move to View. This is a typical instance where a dedicated function exists.
When you search the API documentation with *viewmove" you will find 

ProDrawingViewMove

and bonus: pt_examples will give you some code.

This API is used to position view not to move annotation from one view to another

That's partially right: this function enables to move a Drawing Note to a different view.  This is my understanding of the topic : "How to Move a drawing Note From one view To Another".

 

Can you share a screencapture of the operation that you need to run with toolkit? or share some model (even a dumb one)?

 

By chance do you mean the RMB > Move to plane operation?

?? the suggested API function does not seem to apply to the correctly stated problem: Your application needs to perform the equivalent of RMB on a Drawing view > Move to View

You are right the command you referred to is Move to View when RMB a drawing dimension for example:

To get an actual function to perform the equivalent, an enhancement request is required.


Else follow @FabianWolf suggestion.

Example for a 2D note:

 

  • ProDtlnoteDataGet()
  • ProDtlnotedataAttachmentGet()
  • ProDtlattachGet --> Third arg is the current parent view
  • ProDtlattachSet() --> Supply args returned by ProDtlattachGet() except for the ProView (use the view to be the new parent of the annotation)
  • ProDtlnotedataAttachmentSet()
  • ProDtlnoteErase()
  • ProDtlnoteModify()
  • ProDtlnoteShow()

Works pretty similar for symbols.

 

Hope that helps.

Did this solve your problem?
