Toggle display states from part level within an assembly?

Good morning,

I'm trying to figure out how to be able to toggle between display states that I have set up with a part from within the assembly (which has the particular part in it).  For example, I have a part setup with one config but two different display states.  In an assembly, I have this part along with two other parts.  But within the assembly, all the colors appear with the first display state assignments.  I'm stumped as to how to be able to change the assembly file to appear with the colors from the part at display state 2.  I'm still on SW2010 but hopefully getting an update to 2015 very soon.  I've looked online for a while but don't see anything regarding toggling display states from a part within its assembly.  Basically, how do I change the display state from the part level at the assembly / component level?  I must be missing something or a setting somewhere cuz I see nowhere in the assembly to be able to toggle.  See snips below (as you can see, assembly only shows display state 1 and i see no option to change it to display state 2 that is shown in the last snip with the brown crossbeams instead of gray).  Thanks in advance!
