ECL Viewer & DGN files

Hello,

Would like to know whether ECL Viewer V7 supports .dgn files?

Or the only option to display mentioned file is to use external dedicated program by setting %AUTO% in spro?

Many thanks for your support.

Regards,

Grzegorz

    Hi

    Microstation is a software which supports .dgn file.

    If microstation software is not integrated with SAP, then we cannot view that file with ECL viewer.

    I hope this is clear.

    Regards

    Hello Praveen,

    Thanks for your remarks.

    What do you mean by Microstation integration with SAP?

    If you mean .dgn file definition in SPRO section u2018Define Workstation Applicationu2019 u2013 my answer is YES

    We do have config settings on place!

    Regards,

    Grzegorz

    Please note that ECL viewer 7 does support 2D pixel image file like Microstation(DGN).You can display and process using Redlining for this file format.

    Hello,

    Thanks for all your remarks.

    I have opened OSS message to SAP reporting them an issue we are facing and below you can see an answer from them as it can be useful for others:

    ...I have discussed this issue with the ECL Viewer vendor and according to them, the third party DGN libraries that ECL Viewer 7.0 interact with, do not support this file format in this version and it is not possible to backport them to ECL Viewer 7.0. Hence I am really sorry to say that this is not supported...

    I can consider this topic as closed now.

    Regards,

    Grzegorz
