Default How to change view using code

Hi,

I asked support how they do to change to a certain view in Flexsim as when you click the name of the view in the Flexsim interface. I needed it when I wanted to make a custom GUI. See the answer from support below as well as an example model on how to use it.

Note: The code in the OnPress trigger for the buttons in the GUI looks for a view with the same name as the button node in the GUI so remember this if you change the name of the button or the view.

Hope it helps someone.
Axel

Hi Axel,

There's an applicationcommand called "changeperspview" that should do the trick. It's called like this: applicationcommand("changeperspview", viewName, activedoc); where the viewName is the name of the saved view, and the activedoc is activedocumentnode().

If you right click on the Views menu in Quick Properties, go to View and then Explore Structure. The code I copied the above from is in the OnSelect eventfunction of SelectView. Since that's how we do it, it should work for you!
