Mapkey and Copy/Paste

Mapkey and Copy/Paste

Hi,

I use CREO 2.

I need to create a drawing mapkey which get the name of a dimension (dxxx)

and copy it in a table cell

(using the parameter &mbr.dxxx in order not to remove the dimension from the view) .

In the mapkey I used the Copy and Paste command but it doesn't work

because the copied value is always the original value (get during the mapkey creation)

Any idea ?

Thanks

Pier

Hello Pier,

mapkeys are good for redoing actions exactly as they have been recorded.

There is no programming functionality that allows to memorize values in the mapkey and fill them in later.

I fear, if you want to copy the name of a selected dimension to apply it somewhere (a table cell), you will have to employ one of the APIs, e.g. Toolkit, J-Link...

Gunter
