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 ?
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...
Thank Gunter ,
I was afraid about that !!
