How to create construction lines in a section?

Hi all,

I am trying to create construction lines in a section that is to be displayed in a sketch in my Creo model. Looking at the API, there appears only methods for setting the endpoints of the line using a pfcOutline_ptr object. Is there another class that these sectionEntities inherit from that determines their display styles?

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Is the sketch in a 2D drawing? or 3D model?

I'm not sure about in OTK, but in the original toolkit, I think you can do this via ProDtlentitydataConstructionSet for a 2D drawing. For a 3D sketch/section, you may have to go into the feature element tree... but I'm not quite sure.

Thank you for your response James!

It seems that the function required to determine the construction status of a section curve is not yet implemented in OTK. I was able to use pro/toolkit to implement your suggestion.

Thanks again,

Dan
