i am very pleased to hear you after some time.
Obviously i did not think about this topic deep enough, as it was working according to my common working style. (and unfortunately not for others who are working differently)
Doing my way is:
- filename = part's ID number (i manage my parts by a data base)
- label in tree view = filename (automatically done by A2plus) = part's ID
- label on screen = label in treeview = part's ID
When working this way, someone gets a result like this for example:
So even there does not exist a partlist at time of labeling, i could identify the parts (and their files) by screen labels.
But as told before, this works but is perhaps not the standard way of documentation for other users.
One method i know from other machinery docs is to use the POS-number of the partslist to be drawn to the assembly. This is also not very difficult to implement. But in this case partslist has to be done before.
The labeling code could be made dependent on condition whether a partslist exists or not. In latter case the position number could be used. Is that what you are looking for ?
