[Please note this tip is largely superseded by the Reference Activation options in the right-press context menu]
Here is another for V8i to Activate a Reference file by Data point
I added a Reference Activate and Reference Deactivate on my View bar menu
1st create a dglib file in your interface folder .
Then open the file Key in MDL load custmiz
Go to the 2d view control menu and insert a tool(s)
For the command keyin" t,reference activate;%d "
The %d allows you to pick the Reference file you want to activate by data point
You can do the same for deactivate reference
Of course you could also put this on a function key
Thanks Dan that worked perfiectly
Hi jyount, you can use the capability variable I believe. Search for the capability.list file on your machine to see all of the options, the Activate ones are at the bottom of the list in the file. Hope that helps!
Can "Reference Activate" be disabled using a configuration variable?
