Drag angles in Pro E

I have connected a part to an assembly with a pin constraint and can drag it around the axis. I need to know what the angle is that I am dragging it to, preferably while I am still dragging it.
If I use ROTATION AXIS in the PIN constraint, I can see the angle but I lose the drag and if I select the drag then I lose the angle display. Also I can't switch the dimensions to get this angle display's internal name to use in a RELATION. Is it possible to do this in any version of PRO E. Thanks in advance for any information. Peter.

The problem is that you're talking about to different kinds of controls, one is parametric and subject to relations; the other is dynamic. If you want to see an angle while you're moving dynamically, you should use a 'Measure' feature and retrieve the display while you're dragging the connected part. This way, you can get a start angle and angle at a limit. There are also other ways to do this in the motion definition and in the motors themselves.
