Is it possible to added "Component Display States" of a part in an Assembly  Design Table?


I have a cable assembly which has wires as parts of that assembly.  Now I want to be able to link an annotation note in a drawing to the display state name of the wires which is the color of those wires.  Due to no way to link a display state names in drawings.  The only simplest I can think of is to link the annotations note to the assembly custom properties name "Wire #1 Color" which is insert into the Design Table.  Then add if possible, wires "Component Display States", and then link the excel cell of "Wire #1 Color" to the "Component Display States" cell.  However I can not find any way to add in "Component Display States"in the design table (i.e. <Component Display States>@Wire<1>).


I have tried in the wire part to added "$DisplayState", link a custom property of "Wire Color" is the design table, & finally link annotation note in the draw.  However the display state name does not change which I believe is something to do with it being changed in the assembly.
