Apply an assembly snapshot to a combined view?

Is there any way to apply a snapshot created in Mechanism mode to a Combined View created within the View Manager of an assembly?  I was thinking this could maybe be accomplished by applying a snapshot and creating an explode state, but doing this doesn't seem to save the part positions in the explode state.  If not, is it possible to use the name of an active Combined View in a relation?  

 

For example, if there is a Combined View called "CV1", is there a syntax with which something like this could correctly be written?:

 

IF (Active Combined View == CV1)

x = 1

END

 

My intention would be to set positional mechanism variables based on which combined view is active.  In this example, X might be translational position of a part that uses a cylinder joint.  If it isn't possible to use the active combined view as a parameter, perhaps it is possible to use other variables, such as Display Status or Layer State?
