I'm trying to place a symbol at specific location on drawing. I created a symbol which has (or should have, i currently don't know if it works) a variable text (text would change based on dimension index; so from 1 to x)
I managed to get the symbol definition and place the symbol at a location which i choose with mouse. So next i tried setting the location with the x,y location that i get from a dimension on drawing and that's where i got to a problem where i can't create a point somehow.
dim lok_x as double
dim lok_y as double
dim point as new cpfcpoint2d
dim allattachments as ipfcdetailleaders
dim allattachments_cr as new ccpfcdetailleaders
set allattachments = allattachments_cr.create()
allattachments.itemattachment = position
sym_in.instattachment = allattachments
Bold section works with position variable that i set with point variable which is set with mouse click on drawing. How would i set that point with known x,y location?
My second problem is related to the variable text in symbol.
Dim variabletext As String Dim vartext As IpfcDetailVariantText Dim vartexts As IpfcDetailVariantTexts Dim vartexts_cr As New CpfcDetailVariantTexts Dim vartext_cr As New CCpfcDetailVariantText
Set vartext = vartext_cr.create("TEST", variabletext) Set vartexts = vartexts_cr.Append(vartext)
the .append gets marked with an error saying "expected variable or function" and i'm kinda lost on what to do now.
Lastly, unrelated question to this topic but still very related to everything...
What exactly do Ipfc, CCpfc and Cpfc mean or better, how would i know which one is the one to chose based on what i'm trying to do?
