How to hide the Characteristic Value of a Characteristic in DMS

We have created characteristics(XXX) added few values (aaa,bbb,ccc) and then assigned the Characteristic(XXX) to DMS Class (YYY) 017.
Now, we want to hide one of the characteristic values(ex ccc) form selection.
We do not want that value (ccc) to be deleted.

Can you kindly suggest?

Hi Naveen,

As already stated by Christoph here, a possible solution is to use an object dependency, to be allocated to the characteristic value we want to hide.
In detail, an object dependency type 'Precondition' shall be used, with the following code (taking your naming example for characteristic and values):

specified XXX and XXX = 'CCC'.

Once saved and released, it shall be allocated to the characteristic value.

Here follows a sample trial in my sandbox system.

Dependency creation (Precondition):

Dependency code:

Select the value in the characteristic, and press Object dependencies button

Allocate the Precondition to the value:

This should hopefully work.

Thank you and regards,

Hi Naveen,

I think that the best option for your target is to use dependencies for the characteristic. Please see the online documentation at¤t_toc=/en/5e/dbe4535dd4414de10000000a174cb4/plain.htm&node_id=33 for further information.

Best regards,
