Display States in Configurations

You can create multiple display states for each configuration of an assembly or part.A physical product can have only one display state.

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: CAD Family tab or 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.
