Controlling “Areas”

Is it possible to create a scriptable object in the MathCad sheet that controls whether an area shall be collapsed or expanded in the sheet.

area is-collapsed="true"

vs

area is-collapsed="false"

I’ve tried to explain the “wanted” feature in attached file.

I think the most useful example is one from Tom Gutmaan, which shows how to define varibles by changing the XML.

Re: Controlling “Areas”

One way to solution your problem!

Sometime we need show in Mathcad-sheet one formulas or other formulas.

One example on Mathcad Server

http://twtmas.mpei.ac.ru/mas/Worksheets/IF_in_WorkSheet.mcd

The tip of this task: change PICTURAS with formulas.

One Picture may be empty - showes no information.

It is "collapsed area"

No. I have wanted to do this as well, but unfortunately it is not possible.

Re: Controlling “Areas”

Thanks for the tip, I think i get the picture , but it doesn't solve my "problem".

Re: Controlling “Areas”

Ok too bad, but now i know.

Re: Controlling “Areas”

I am massively surprised this cant be done.

Re: Controlling “Areas”

Do you mean you are surprised that Mathsoft/PTC didn't provide a way to do it, or that you are actually surprosed it can't be done?

Re: Controlling “Areas”

You could use a conditional statements through a scripted component.

Not the best, but will work.

Re: Controlling “Areas”

You can't open or close areas from within a scripted component.

Not really suprised Mathsoft or PTC haven't provided a way to do it, but I am suprised that it can't be done.
