Display States in Configurations

You can create multiple display states for each configuration of an assembly or part.

To control display states in a design table, you must link display states to configurations. At the bottom of the Display States section in the ConfigurationManager tab , right-click a display state and click Properties. In the Display State Properties PropertyManager, under Advanced Options, select Link display states to configurations. Click .

In a design table, the column header for controlling the active display state uses this syntax:


The column header is not case-sensitive.

In the table body cells, enter the display state name. If a cell remains blank:
  • For new configurations, the system adds Display State-n to the table.
  • For existing configurations, the system adds the name of that configuration's last active display state.
