2.3.5.10. Create "Alternative Representations"

Altreps is supported as of NX 10.

In order to support native placing of "alternative representations" for NX10, the macro "cns_place_nx10_teamcenter_altrep.macro" has to be used. In addition to already available placeholders two new have been added: <<CNS_ITEMREVINDEX>> and <<CNS_ALTREPINDEX>>. These have to replace the numbers in the following macro lines when self-recording:

CUSTOM 25 PdmUI_BrowseApp * TL_EXPAND * (1) * 1 !
CUSTOM 25 PdmUI_BrowseApp * TL_EXPAND * (1 <<CNS_ITEMREVINDEX>>) * 1 !
CUSTOM 25 PdmUI_BrowseApp * TL_PICKED_ITEM * (1 <<CNS_ITEMREVINDEX>> <<CNS_ALTREPINDEX>>) * 0 !
CUSTOM 25 PdmUI_BrowseApp * TL_SELECT * (1) * 0 * 0 !
...
CUSTOM 25 PdmUI_BrowseApp * TL_SELECT * (1 <<CNS_ITEMREVINDEX>> <<CNS_ALTREPINDEX>>) * 0 * 1 !

NX 11 and 12 do not need the special macro. The "normal" placing macros are sufficient.

In addition, in ifnxteamcenter.cfg, the key TC_allowItemAltRep=1 has to be set for customers, which have activated Altreps for templates (<ShowAltrep>Yes</ShowAltrep> in the respective .pax file). This applies for all versions.
