DriveWorks Pro 15: Suppression States [send feedback...]

Suppression States

Suppression states allow multiple models to be suppressed with each suppression state rule. The Suppression state rule result should be True or False.

The name of the suppression state can then be used in the "Is Suppressed" rule for each model tree node.

Information Panel

With an Suppression State selected in the Feature Panel the following will be displayed in the Information Panel:

  • Is Suppressed - check to suppress the state

Parameter Panel

With an Suppression State checked in the Feature Panel the following will be displayed in the Parameter Panel:

  • Suppressed - True to suppress the state

Using a Suppression State

Suppression States can be linked to models to control the suppression state of one or multiple models.

Each model node in the Feature Panel has a property called "Is Suppressed". A rule can be entered for this property and can be given a Suppression State name as a string.

When the Suppression State is set to TRUE, the models linked to that Suppression State will suppress.

When the Suppression State is set to FALSE, the models will be unsuppressed.
