What exactly does IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION mean in theiplot.cfg ProjectWise InterPlot Client Configure IPLOT configurationfile?Problem 43804IPLOT_DEFAULT_SETTINGS
IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION determines if InterPlot honorsthe workspace settings for a ProjectWise document. When set to "true",InterPlot can honor the managed workspace or workspace profileassociated with the design file in ProjectWise. This ensures that thecorrect font, style and other resources are used when producing plots. When set to "false", InterPlot does not honor the ProjectWise workspacesettings. The default value is "true".This variable is only honored in Organizer, not in the dialog. It turnsoff the managed workspace/profile support we added in v8i. Whenplotting from the IPLOT dialog, we will always use the MicroStationenvironment you are displaying with in IPLOT.IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_VALIDATION would not make any difference towhether the IP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS gets used because the .ucf typicallywill override the ip.cfg/iplot.cfg.The variable controls whether or not IPLOT honors the managed workspaceor the workspace profile in the context of InterPlot Organizer. TheMicroStation workspace could set an InterPlot-related variable, butwhether or not such InterPlot variables set in MicroStation workspacesare honored depends on the context. Typically, only IPLOT Dialogvariables can be reliably set in ucf/pcf files. Other variables pertainto code that does not run inside ustation.exe.If there is a conflict, the UCF typically would override the iplot.cfgfile.This variable would have not affect in the context of the IPLOT dialogbut only is useful when plotting from ProjectWise Organizer. The IPLOTDialog looks for IP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS, and so since the IPLOT Dialog runsinside of MicroStation, it will "see" any definitions ofIP_DEFAULT_SETTINGS that occur in the various ucf/pcf files. On theother hands, there are variables that are solely and exlusively used bythe IplotOrg.exe container layer, and, for those variables, it wouldnever be useful to put them in a ucf/pcf.In an sense, the InterPlot code NEVER reads UCF/PCF directly, but someof the code calls GetEnvironment variables, and sometimes it isustation.exe implementing that call, and it will get values fromucf/pcf.IPLOT_PROJECTWISE_WORKSPACE_INTEGRATION does work when using all 8.11.7s/w, did not test PW XM. Keep in mind that when the validation isturned off, it will use the ucf last used when the print engine wasopened.
