Identifying specific notes for extraction

Identifying specific notes for extraction

Has anybody been successful in "tagging" detail note entities in JLink (or even Toolkit) for the purpose of identifying for programmatic extraction and modification later? Any general ideas for a way to do this would be helpful.


Thanks,

AW: Identifying specific notes for extraction

I did the following for being able to find all notes of a given type.

The task was to export a list of all notes of a specific type (e.g. BOM
ballons with ?A_? as a prefix).



1. User has to create this type of note with a toolkit function.

2. Toolkit (or Jlink) uses the ?External Data? functionality to create
a data slot with the id of the newly created note.

3. Export or search function scans all external data slots to find all
note ids.

4. Export function also looks for invalid slot data (notes that might
have been deleted by the user manually) ? these slots are deleted
automatically?

RE: Identifying specific notes for extraction

Hi all,


Gary,


Beside extended data... Layers containing notesand drawing parameterswould work also. Note names ( ProModelitemNameSet) would work as well. Predefined notes with an export tag already included in the note text (!EXPORT-ME! for example)and anend user wouldhave to type in whatever elseneeded.Or any combination(s) of theabove. Add rule based layers to the mix...


HIH.
