Style table

Displays in the table format the style settings of a table or chart.
The style table is divided into the following elements:

  • Table
  • Chart
  • Integrated Master
  • Work Instructions
  • Graphical Master
  • Dispatching View
  • HTML View
  • Message Window
  • Object Browser
  • Purchase master

(Purchase Master is only used in Asprova SCP)

You may add / edit / delete styles from this table. The contents of operations from the menu are saved to this style table.

When you enter a new style code, the style category will be "CustomTable"; please change it as needed.

The style table displays standard styles and other user-saved styles. The standard styles are not editable.


The code string will be displayed in the style menu.

Style category

The style menu will be displayed for the same category.

Default style

Will become the default style if checked.

Display order

Enter a value. Will be displayed in the style menu in ascending order.

Hidden Flag (properties window)

"Yes" or "No" can be specified. If set as yes, the corresponding tab is visible in properties window (From Ver.7.1.0).
All properties cannot be made invisible.


The tab text of tables and properties window can be customized (From Ver.7.1.0).
However, aliases cannot be specified for all tabs.

If specified, user specified alias strings are also shown on the right part popup menu.


Sharing styles

After Ver.15.0

Display/hide settings are done using the “Displayed users”, “Hidden users” and “Displayed module types” properties.
If you are not using NLS or DS, specify * in "Displayed users" or "Hidden users" as necessary.

Displayed users, Displayed module typesIf not specified, this means all users and all module types If both are set, the AND condition is applied.
Hidden usersIf not specified, this has no effect on the result. This setting overrides the other two.


The following shows an example in which the project manager creates a style assignment. Let’s assume users A, B, C, and D, all members of the Group 1 user group.

Example 1

CodeDisplayed usersHidden usersDisplayed module types 
Style 1   If not specified, all users and all module types are displayed.
Style 2Group 1  User groups can be specified for displayed users and hidden users.
Style 3A;B  Three properties with semicolon delimiters can be specified.
Style 4Group 1D If both displayed users and hidden users are specified, the hidden users setting takes precedence.
Style 5 * *, meaning all users, can be specified for displayed users or hidden users.

UserDisplayed styles
AStyle 1, Style 2, Style 3, Style 4
BStyle 1, Style 2, Style 3, Style 4
CStyle 1, Style 2, Style 4
DStyle 1, Style 2


Example 2: Example of creating a style for each module type

CodeDisplayed usersHidden usersDisplayed module types
Style 1  APS;MS
Style 2  MES

Example 3: Example of creating a style with a combination of user and module type

CodeDisplayed usersHidden usersDisplayed module types 
Style 1 AAPSWhen hidden users and module types are specified, the setting of hidden users takes precedence.
Style 2B MSWhen displayed users and module types are specified, evaluation is carried out with the AND condition.

Module typeUser


“!” symbol for “Hidden users”

“!” may be specified for “Hidden users”, This can happen in styles created by Asprova of versions earlier than 15.0. When “!” is specified, this means “displayed when logging in with NLS/DS, but hidden when not logged in with NLS/DS". This setting is to preserve version compatibility, and it is not a setting that users need be aware of. The “!” setting may be deleted or changed to a user or with “*”.

You can check whether it can be edited with the "Editable users" property.


CodeEditable users 
Style 1 If not specified, all users can edit it.
Style 3A;BUsers and user groups can be specified, separated by semicolons.
Style 2Group 1If you specify a user group, only the users included in that user group can edit it.
Style 4*“*” can be specified, but in this case, all users can edit it similarly to if not specified.


Versions earlier than Ver.15.0

This is done in the “Hidden” and “Shared” properties.

Will not be displayed in the style menu if the “Hidden” check box is selected. Style tab also becomes invisible.


User-specific style

If you are using Asprova NLS, the style will be different for each user who is logged on.

For example, the style saved by User A will be displayed only when logged on as User A. Similarly, the default style and hidden settings are made on an individual user basis.

When the file of user A should be available for other users, please login the NLS and set the "Share flag" to "YES".
Because Asprova MES etc. have no permission to save the file, please use the share folder where the file is.
