5.9.10.2. Dialog area Variants (optionally)

In dialog area Variants, you can optionally determine, if the accessory part shall be displayed for the whole project or only for certain rows.

  1. In the dialog area Variants, click on the button New .

    -> A new row is added.

    Variable "A" with value 18 stated - The accessory part is only displayed in the PARTdataManager later, if in the source project, a row with "A=18" is selected.

    Variable "A" with value 18 stated - The accessory part is only displayed in the PARTdataManager later, if in the source project, a row with "A=18" is selected.

  2. In the column Variable, open the list field and select that variable, with whose value you want to perform the restriction.

  3. In the column Value, open the list field and select the desired value.

  4. Under Links to parts, determine the desired accessory part.

  5. Update the index and open the part in PARTdataManager.

    In the docking window Links, select the list field option Accessories.

    For testing select a row with a variable value determined before. -> Accessory part is displayed.

    Select a row with variable value not determined before. -> Accessory part is not displayed.

Alternatively you can determine desired rows directly in the table. Then an appropriate formula expression is automatically generated.

  1. Click on the button New from table .

    [Note] Note

    New from table makes the creation of filters easier. Simply select the desired rows in the table and the respective formula is automatically created.

    However, no value range filter can be set and it is not possible to access source variables. That means for complex filters, may be using New is advantageous.

    -> The dialog box Select lines is opened.

  2. Select the desired table rows (Ctrl = several single, Shift = as block) and click on Add row.

    -> On the right, the created formula is displayed.[37]

    In above example:

    IDNR.LE.4

    That means the variable IDNR shall be equal or less than 4.

  3. Confirm with OK. Optionally, you can still adjust the formula before.

    -> Now the created expression is displayed in the dialog area Variants.

  4. Now under Links to parts, determine the desired accessory parts. For this, proceed as already described before.



[37] For the formula creation Fortran syntax is used. On this, please see under Section 16.2.1, “Fortran Syntax ”.
