preview of sketch - temporary sketch

Hello everybody,


I'm new here and hope to be landed in the right area.


Shortly to my intention: I create a SW-Addin in the language C #.

I could implement all previous functions with the help of the API examples.

Now I would display "sketches with text" BEFORE they created.

Is there a way to create sketches (2D) only temporarily using the API?


If I work with the "sketchmanager", the lines are created and drawn in the model.

I'm looking for a way, similar to creating with the modeler, an temporary body or edge models, so that I can display it as a temporary "body".

With a body, it is possible with the function "Display" of the class/Interface "Body2".

Using this variant, I can also display edges (also "sketch lines") as a preview.

Difficult is it only with text :-(  ==> this must be create "with hand" with the "modeler".

Because this I search for a way to preview sketches  --> here I can easily write text.


I would be delighted to find solutions and other possibilities of realization.


PS: my native language is german - i hope you can understand this translation
