Would be useful if MatchProperties would have an option for SetObjectDisplayMode

Thank you!..

I have requested this long time ago, I hope they remember …

I would love to see “display mode” as an object properties entry. and included in the matching options of course.

I just remembered there is this script by Mitch, it can set the displaymode for an object in several viewports. (save as .py)
not exactly what you are asking for, but certainly helpful in many scenarios:

"""Sets a custom display mode for one or more objects in all viewports
User can choose display mode from a list box
Script by Mitch Heynick 17 February 2014"""

"""Note the list box method currently only runs on Windows, 
so a GetString method has been substituted when running on Mac"""

import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
import scriptcontext as sc
import Rhino

def SetObjDisplayModeAllViewports():
    msg="Select objects to set display mode"
    if not objIDs: return
    dModes = Rhino.Display.DisplayModeDescription.GetDisplayModes()
    modeNames=[dMode.LocalName for dMode in dModes if not dMode.PipelineLocked]
    msg="Choose a display mode for objects"
    #For Mac, set up string box, otherwise use listbox for Windows
    if Rhino.Runtime.HostUtils.RunningOnOSX:
        if not modeName: return
        #check for valid string
        for name in modeNames:
            if name==modeName:
                stringmatch=True ; break
        if not stringmatch: return
        modeName=rs.ListBox(modeNames,msg,"Display Mode List")
        if not modeName: return
    for i in range(len(modeNames)):
        if modeName==modeNames[i]: break
    vIDs=[view.ActiveViewportID for view in sc.doc.Views]
    for vID in vIDs:
        for objID in objIDs:
            attr = objRef.Attributes
            attr.SetDisplayModeOverride(dModes[i], vID)
            sc.doc.Objects.ModifyAttributes(objID, attr, False)
