Hi,

I am having troubles promoting my CAD parameters to workbench with jscript. This is the command achieved in the gui by selecting the paramaters and "checking" them in the list.

I have tried the following code and it doesn't work:

Code:
ag.listview.ActivateItem("DS_Thickness"); 
ag.listview.ItemValue = 40;
ag.listview.SelectedItem.IsChecked="true";
Does anyone know any command that can do this?

Also on another note, does anyone know how to use imported named selections with jscript?

I have one called NS_INNERSURFACE but I was unable to use it with the following command,

Code:
ag.facePick;
agb.AddSelect(agc.TypeFace, NS_INNERSURFACE);
Instead I had to add the following command in front of the above to redefine my named selection before using it,

Code:
var NS_INNERSURFACE = ag.m.ModelFaces(4);
Any help is greatly appreciated. I have tried to search the *.js files in the directories but I get kind of lost as I have limited programming experience.

are you activating body before activating its properties?

also check if your NS is coming when you import geometry!
once imported, you can call them with that code

Thanks for the response. Sorry for such a late reply.

I have changed my method and do not need to do the steps as I posted above. Instead I will only use my named selections in the meshing step and for that it is working! I do not know why it did not work in DM as they were being imported correctly.

On a side note (I don't know if I should make a seperate thread for this), I am currently editing my mesh with the listview commands. These work if I set interactive mode to True but do not if I set interactive mode to False. Do you know any method to get these commands to work in batch mode?

I have tried, for example, the command,

Code:
 
var Mesh_Mod = DS.Tree.FirstActiveBranch.MeshControlGroup;
DS.Script.SelectItems(""+Mesh_Mod.ID);
DS.Script.lv.ActivateItem("Physics Preference");
DS.Script.lv.ItemValue = "CFD";
But it does not work. Nor does using ListView instead of DS.Script.lv (Which is what I use that is working in Interactive Mode)

I reckon u r after this!

Code:
// access MeshControlGroup
var meshGroup = ds.Tree.FirstActiveBranch.MeshControlGroup;
ds.Script.changeActiveObject(meshGroup.ID);

// specify global mesh settings
meshGroup.PhysicsPreference = 2;
meshGroup.SmoothingOption = 2;
meshGroup.SpanningAngleSF = 10;
meshGroup.MinSizeSF = 0.0001;
meshGroup.MaxFaceElementSize = 0.005;
meshGroup.MaxSizeSF = 0.375;

// update mesh tree
ds.Script.fillTree();
hope it helps!

Cheers
