Is it possible to add hidden parameters in Creo Parameteric part/assembly/drawing file by toolkit?

Is it possible to add hidden parameters in Creo Parameteric part/assembly/drawing file by toolkit?

I want to add some information into creo parametric file (eg. prt, asm, drw) by toolkit.
So far I can only think of attach these info into Parameters, Relations or Pro/Program.
But nither of them can hide the info to user in ProE.
Is there any way I can store private primitive data in plain text or key-value pairs and not letting user to see them in Creo Parametric?

Thanks

Thank you both for the reply.

I've also asked PTC and they suggested to use “External Data”

(pfcExternalData for C++, IpfcExternalData for VB)

Probably. In know that compartmentalizing data is available to 3rd party apps, at least for parts and assemblies.

 

If you want to know how you may have to contact PTC. I would look for anything dealing with 'blobs' or 'blocks'

Yes.  SmartAssembly is doing this today.  (SmartAssembly is just a Toolkit add-on.)  The key-value pair data is visible as plain text inside the Creo files when viewed with a text editor.  I have no idea what specific Toolkit commands they are using to do this though...
