Using VB to change the color of a surface

Using VB to change the color of a surface

Hope this hasn't been covered...I found lots of toolkit but no VB.


Is it possible to change the color of a surface using VB/VBA?


I've (I think) managed to "get hold" on the surfaces using this:


Private Function GetSurfaces(ByRef model As IpfcModel)
Dim surfaces As IpfcModelItems
Dim numSurfaces As Double

End Function



Thanks in advance.

There is no API function in VB or Weblink. Available in Toolkit only.


Perhaps you might try this:


Add all your surfaces to the SelectionBuffer with IpfcSelectionBuffer.AddSelection().


Then run a macro/mapkey with session.RunMacro().


You might have colors defined in your environment and these colors have a NAME, for example "r1", so this mapkey executed after adding surface selections to the selection buffer willassignthe color r1 to the surfaces:


mapkey _sc ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `ProCmdViewGallery.view`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` \
mapkey(continued) `ProCmdViewGallery_layoutph.palette_holder.myAppPalette.NamesList`1 `r1`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Timer `UI Desktop` `UI Desktop` `Gallery_UI_Timer`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `ProCmdViewGallery.view`;



Hope this helps.
