I want to change the text at the design state prompt (WorkInProgress / Pending / Released). How to do that?

             I don’t know if I understand the request correctly. But the Design State is a property within the iproperties tabs. To change it within the iproperties tab it is a pull down menu and you can select the three work states (work in progress, pending and released). If the property is used within the file it will update when the change to the work status is changed.           

            There is some document management systems that may control that property and any changes make within the document management system will be exported back to the file. In cases like this the work state can’t be changed within the file. You will need to check to see if that is applicable in your case. If none of the above applies please let us know what the intent and end results you require.

Thanks for responding my question.

Obviously I wasn't clear. Sorry for that. What I want to do is that I want to change the words into an other. For example, I want to change the word pending into check. If possible, I even want to add an option (canceled) so I can choose between four states.

 

Hopefully you can answer this question to.

Hi Yannick, sorry but that isn't also what I ment. Because I'm a Dutch guy I want to change the three words (WorkInProgress, Pending and Released) into my own language. Somewhere in Inventor it must be possible to change these words.

When answering this question, please keep in mind that I'm not a pro in configuring Inventor.

Hi

yes use ilogic

the part status is internaly manage by number 1-2-3(1= in progress, 2= pending, 3= released)

create custom iproperty and use ilogic to associate the value

ex

designState = iProperties.Value("Status", "Design State")

if designState = "3" then  

iProperties.Value("custom", "your property")="check"

elseif designState="2"then

iProperties.Value("custom", "your property")="check"

 etc...

you can't add new internal design state but with ilogic you can achieve the job
