Display of enum for feature type in custom features

lemon1324lemon1324 Member, Developers Posts: 223 EDU
Is it possible to get a feature-type enum to display as "tabs" rather than a drop-down like it does for the native boolean operation?

I was able to do this in a custom feature if I declared a BooleanOperationType enum and imported onshape/std/booleanoperationtype.gen.fs at the top, but not if I defined my own operation type enum. In both cases it was the first enum in the feature definition and as far as I can tell I had equivalent code. I didn't see anything in the documentation either. What am I missing?

    I'd also be interested in this answer, I wondered the same thing at one point but just ended up assuming it was built-in magic not accessible for users.
