How to add a custom VueAction in AutoVue

Recently support started to receive more SRs related to customizations, especially around adding a functionality to AutoVue Client/Server Deployment. The first thing to note is that yes it is indeed possible to add one or more new AutoVue functionalities to AutoVue by creating custom code using the AutoVue API. There is already a lot of information in the existing AutoVue documentation on this but since there are lots of steps involved I think it make sense to explain how this can be achieved with step by step instructions. Please refer to Note 2151550.1 and feel free to post comments (to this post or to the note itself) if you feel that any of the steps needs additional clarifications.

User defined views in AutoVue

Last year I wrote about a feature that I felt was underutilized in AutoVue: Real-Time Collaboration with AutoVue. Today I want to write about another feature that is underutilized and maybe misunderstand. User defined views.

Recently a customer wrote me to tell me how user defined views were great but the fact that he had to redo them each session was annoying and time consuming.

First let me review what a user defined view is. In AutoVue, under the view tab, users are able to create views of the model that best fits their needs, they can rotate the model, explode it out, make certain pieces transparent, etc. Many of these views can be made during a session and by “clicking” on one of the views the model is brought back to that position.

For more information on User defined views and other AutoVue features and functionality see our user guide.

  In the image below I have created 2 User views, Exploded and Transparency, I can switch between these or any of the pre-set views in the view tab.

Here is what the user who wrote to me did not realize, you can create user defined views in Markup mode and save them as part of a markup. As shown in image 2. This means that you only need to create a certain view once, save it and it will remain a part of that markup associated with that file.

This feature makes it easy to save a specific “view” of a model that can be user again and again for a variety of reasons.
