In an .idw environment, I have multiple models displayed.
I am trying to create simple text labels for each model using text, modifying each one so that it will display the part number and the revision level by using the "Component" drop down box and assigning the proper "Type" and "Property", then using the "Add Text Parameter" button to place the fields into the text box.
This works as intended for the first model that I created a view for. However, it will not work for each successive model; the text will revert to the part number and revision level of the first model that was brought into the .idw environment, even if I change the target component in the "Component" drop-down box.
In the .jpg that I have attached, you can see that I have 035-14218 selected in the "Component" drop-down. This is the initial model that I brought into the .idw. and the resulting text is correct.
Is this a bug, or is there something else that I need to do that I am missing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are these assemblies or parts?
These are assemblies.
Inventor will take only what you have in VIEW:1
Seeing you have assemblies you also can't use a symbol.
You would have to right a VBA or ilogic to get it to work. I am a bit busy today but if someone does not help you on this I will when I am done.
You could do a search to see if some has done this already and I believe it was..
It is also a item in idea section you can vote for it to be added..
I will find links later if no one helps you..
Here I did a search this is what I found you may have to change it up or search for more..
This may be better
Please give Curtis_Waguespack the thank you. He did all the work and is a very nice guy..
You can kudos me for the help if you wish but he gets all credit..
jletcher, thank you very much for your help, and for searching out the solution. Apparently, I didn't parse my search well enough to come up with what you found, becuase I did try.
I hadn't thought of using a view label to acheive this. A big thank you to Curtis_Waguespack for the solution to my problem.
