    How to get the name of the assigned physical DCS of a DetailedView in DE?

      I cannot find out with Automation, what the name is of the assigned "DisplayControlScheme" from a "DetailedView" in DrawingEditor!

      Because the command (fig.):

      oDrawEditDoc.ActiveSheet.DetailedViews.item(1).DisplayControl.Name

      ...returns just the name of the Sheet-assigned DCS, on which the DetailedView is placed. But not from the DV itself!

       

      The picture will also describe the problem:

          This issue was filed with Mentor in November 2011 (as SR2443464372, DR00840453).  The Defect Report was closed in 2015 (without any email notice), stating that this concern is an Enhancement Request, needing to be filed on Mentor Ideas.

           

          Users can't wait four or more years to get an answer like that, which does not even constitute a solution.  Hence, the workaround: Always assign the Display Control Scheme Name for a Detailed View to be the Name of the Detailed View.  This way, you take control of the problem, accessing the Scheme Name through DetailedView.Name.  It's simple, and it has worked for us over the past 6+ years.
