Drawings: adding view to a layer and turning off

Drawings: adding view to a layer and turning off

Drawings: adding view to a layer and turning off

I am using a parametric model with Pro-E/Pro-Program that creates 3D models and drawings.

I currently have a section view on my drawing, however I would like to turn this view off, or hide this view, when a certain state is deactivated.

For example: I have VBA Macro that creates the input file for Pro-Program. One of the parameters activates a certain feature on the model. I would like to have this view showing when this feature is activated, and would like to hide the view when the feature is deactivated. I am able to show/hide symbols, annotations and dimensions with different layers and states but I cannot do the same with a view.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Drawings: adding view to a layer and turning off

There is a largely undocumented feature called Drawing Program which should be able to do this. That's all the help I can give you as the lack of documentation, and never needing to use it means I don't know more. This is the best reference I know of: https://community.ptc.com/t5/Creo-Modeling-Questio... and even that doesn't seem particularly good.
