    Question using Property Tab Builder & Custom Properties & Setting  a custom Prop “Drawing_#” to be equal to $PRP:"SW-File Name"

    Robert Conklin

      First I am running  SW 2014 SP5

      In a part file (SLDPRT) I have set the following:

      A Capture.JPG
      Good works fine.

      Pops up thusly in the Property Tab Builder:

      B Capture.JPG

      The tab builder design is thus:

      D Capture.JPG

      With a “text file” called “drawing_#.txt” to pull or select items from:

      E Capture.JPG

      So that I may pick if I desire say:

      F Capture.JPG

      Which makes this happen:

      G Capture.JPG


      Back to:

      B Capture.JPG

      After editing a field in the Property Tab Builder dialog user input box, say in “title line 1” or any other field that needs editing and
      one applies changes with the value as shown above:

      H Capture.JPG

      One gets this in:

      C Capture.JPG


      The Custom Prop is no longer tied to the “SW-File Name”

      Question how do I get the Custom Prop to stay tied to the “SW-File Name”?

      It is as if it obtains the “Evaluated Value” and returns this “Evaluated Value” to the “Value / Text Expression” field upon apply.
