i have created custom property drawn date and assigned $PRPSHEET:"SW-ShortDate". but the problem is whenever i open drawing it shows current date not drawn date...
pls suggest correct method...
I don't know of a property that will call out the date that a drawing was created, but that won't update. I manually enter mine.
I use the same method as Glenn - I have the $PRPSHEET fill in the "printed: " box and I manually put in the "drawn: " date.
At best there might be a way to reference the file creation date through the SW properties. But then if you copy a file it may reference the original date instead of the copy date. Not sure it's worth the hassle.
Use" SW-Created Date(Created Date)"
SW-Created Date(Created Date) will display the date the Part was created eg windows time stamp.
If you just use the Link to Property option within the Annotation Note and Select it from the 'Current Document' you should be able to extract that Drawn Date directly from the File-Properties of the Drawing File. Simply create it as static text and enter when you create the drawing file?
I created a property called drawn date using the property tab builder for use in my drawings, you can have it set so as a calander will pop up so as you can select the date from the pop up calander, I have also created custom properties for drawing numbers, customer names, custom finishes etc or any other property you want to make using the property tab builder. It is a very powerfull tool when used correctly.
Paul, how do you make the calander pop up?
We do a similar thing: On creating a new drawing, first item is to use Property Tab and fill in.
In Property Tab Builder, set the TYPE for a textbox to DATE.
Is there any way for it to have the current date automated selected?
When the calendar popup appears, today is already highlighted.
