Pre-Defined color for Structure Browser objects

Pre-Defined color for Structure Browser objects

Within the Modeling structure browser you can influence the display of the object names using configured browser views. Such as displaying database attributes instead of instance names.

 

I would like to have the option to highlight objects (parts/assemblies) based on their database attributes. Assuming a part is locked (should be not used by designer anymore) within ModelManager it should be possible to define that the name is displayed within the Structure Browser in red color. Or imported parts are displayed in cyan color etc.

Hi,

I find this option very helpful too.

We use a little piece of LISP to do this. We evaluate some attributes of the browser objects wich comes from our PDM.

It is very helpful but there are a misbehavior with pseudofolders. The pseudofolders inherit the Color of their owner...

No Idea to solve this Problem.

Hi,

This is an interesting issue.  I hope you don't mind -- I rewrote your code without using the sd-defdialog, which isn't required for something like this. Instead, you can just call a function to turn colors on or off (or toggle on/off).

 

The code below has the pseudo-folders inheriting the color of their children. If you want them to be a different color, uncomment the line that matches the pseudo-folder check.

 

I have added a few comments to describe what the code is doing.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

I hope this helps!

Great thank you!

I just saw your post. Now I'll try to implement that. Thank you for your effort and support ...

 

Best wishes
