Controling Suppression State without Design Table

I've always wonder if it's posible to control suppression states automatically without a Design Table. For Example:

When I do a Pattern, since pattern can only have 2 or more instances,when it's Controled by an equation, the number of instances is relative to the lengt of the part, so if my part gets to short i get an error instead of suppressing the pattern.

It, would be nice if I could set an equation as this example:
$STATE@Pattern1 = iif("Length">10,"U","S").

This way if my part is shorter than 10 my pattern woulg get automatically suppressed.

So my questions is, If in Design Tables you return a value of "S" or "U" for the $STATE@, how or where does the Table tell SolidWorks to suppress when the value is "S"?

any ideas???
