Display a graphical history on your data card

March 20th, 2013 by

I thought the idea of putting an image of the workflow on a SolidWorks Enterprise PDM data card was rather clever. Yesterday, I received an email from a customer in Dayton who has taken the concept one step further:

ControlsOnTop

They put data card controls on top of the image. As files go through transitions, the transition puts the values into the controls. Users can now quickly see the history of the file in a nice graphical form.

You don’t have control over the order of objects on a data card, but it appears a bitmap is always on the bottom, -which in this case is exactly what you want.
