While loop through all Views in a sheet, I can use oView.ScaleFromBase to know if the scale of the view is changed from Base-View. Like this:
For Each oView In oViews If oView.ScaleFromBase = False Then
'This view's scale is different from that of the Base-View
But I can't tell in this way if it is a Base-View or views with different view scale.
There is a oView.ViewType, I tried this
Dim mytype As String mytype = oView.ViewType
for Base-View, mytype=10501
for other-view with different scale, mytype=10504
Is there other property I could use? Can't work out how to get the View Type Name.
Thanks for help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You may check oView.ParentView property.
For base view it returns Nothing.

I tried this, but both baseview and view whose scale if different from baseview return a Nothing.
Dim myView As DrawingView For Each oView In oViews If oView.ScaleFromBase = False Then myView = oView.ParentView If myView Is Nothing Then MsgBox("nothing") Else MsgBox("something") end if end if next
Can you attach the data that you see the problem? Or double check the drawing view which has different scale from its parent view does have a parent view or not?
You can check this way:
For each oView in oViews If oView.ViewType = Inventor.DrawingViewTypeEnum.kStandardDrawingViewT
ype Then Debug.Print("This is a base view") Else Debug.Print("This is not a base view") End If Next
Or you can check the oView.Aligned property but this will also return false if the alignment has been broken from the base view.
I just made a cube and generated a base view, a top view,a right view and an iso view. Then I change the view scale of the iso view.
Then I want the code to tell me which one's scale is changed and it is not a base view.
