    Question

    Can iLogic be used to enforce PDM/ERP system requirements?

    Answer

    Yes often it can. For instance - iLogic can be used to automatically convert lower case text to capitals for any property fields, and also to enforce the length of a prompted entry.  

    To get this to work in your Inventor file, copy and paste the following code into a rule in an Inventor file:

     

    'Check to see if the description is longer than 30 Characters
    DescLENGTH = (Len(iProperties.Value("Project", "Description")))
    'Message box to tell you if the length is longer than 30 Characters and how many characters it is!
    If DescLENGTH > 30
    i = MessageBox.Show(("Description should not exceed 30 Characters, current Description is " & (Len(iProperties.Value("Project", "Description"))) & " Characters"), "CadlineCommunity.co.uk", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Hand, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)
    End If
