Is there any solution to write a datacard variable ONLY to the SWX file's Custom Property and not the Config Specific property?
Just open the SolidwWorks file Card and uncheck the following option.
Updates all configurations.
Attached the pic for your help.
unfortunatelly it is not help
I have SWX Part Data cards, and it contains some variables with default value from Folder data card variable.
Example: the folder data card contains Project Name variable, and when a swx file created in this folder, the file gets the Project Name variable's value from the folder.
Now when a file created, or placed into the folder, the Project Name variable appears in the Custom Properties and in all Configurations.
I dont understand. deselect the values which you don't want to parculate to configurations.
May be a pic would help me understand better.
I understand what you told That checkbox is unchecked at that values.. If i right, there are two ways to incorporate values from data card into the swx file property:
1- user types the value into the textbox on the file data card-> variable's value goes into the specified SWX property field
2- create, or copy a file into a Folder -> if a file data card contains any variable which "Default value" set to "Folder data card variable", the parent folder's specified value goes into the specified SWX property field
In case "1" your solution is correct, but in case "2" the "Updates all configurations" checkbox has no effect for the variable's value "transfer".. and my problem is the case "2"
Have you checked the default overwrite the values for those fields in the data card controls ?
I am not able to get what property you dont want to send to configurations. as i said a picture would help me to understand.
oh.. sorry I misread your post about picture
I created four pictures, one of about the FileCard, one about the variable, one about the Folder card and one about the Property in the SWX file
I would like to send the Project name and Project number from the folder card to the SWX file Custom property and not the Config specific properties
The project name number property needs to be mentioned in the Configuration specific tab.
We should move those to Custom tab.
That should do the trick
Hope this helps..
sorry, but I don't understand how do I move to the Custom tab?
Create, a new property in the custom tab:
for ex: Prj_name
sorry for my incomprehension
create a new property in the SWX file? I don't understand exactly, why?
I have a Folder, and it contains a "Project Name" variable, and it has a value..
I would like that, if I copy a file, or create a new file in that folder, the "Project Name" value from the folder's "Project Name" variable goes into the SWX file's Custom property automatically..
