    This could be a very useful script for generating planting plans for complex natural systems like native meadows where drawing planting plans is and exercise in circle insanity. I however am not able to get it anywhere close to being useful for this purpose. Attached is the file with a folder containing very simple plant objects in it. The script does not pack the symbols like the simple procedural example, Is this intentional? Perhaps I've got something wrong? I confess the math is over my head and beyond what I have time for.

  1. Am I missing something? I cannot get either an isolation valve or master valve to show any pressure loss or flow no matter where they are connected. They always display the same error no matter if they are from a catalog or custom. All other components downstream and upstream of them show flow and pressure and are working fine.
  2. I am unable to add custom pipe material to the 'Catalog Item Edit' dialog. I would like to add, for instance, HDPE SIDR 15 pipe type to the list. One can add it to the list but you are unable to change the pipe size to anything other than '0.00' thus it won't work - the program then won't size the pipe on the plan or perform any needed calculations.
  3. Here's a file demonstrating the problem. I hope this can be resolved. We can't really use the irrigation module until it is. Irrigation fail.vwx
  4. I've had the same problem since I started using the irrigation tools years ago. Are we the only ones using this tool? This is one of several problems that have never been fixed. I'm not sure Nemetcheck cares that much.
  5. I'm having a lot of trouble getting access to the data of the Plant Database in worksheet scripts. For instance the following should return the 'Blooms Begin' field data currentObject = vs.WSScript_GetObject() #Record 1 is the handle to the Plant Record, Record 2 is the handle to the plant object associated with the record vRecordHandle = vs.GetRecord(currentObject, 1) vRecordName = vs.GetName(vRecordHandle) bloomRecord = vs.GetRFieldOpt(vRecordHandle, vRecordName, "Blooms Begin") vs.AlrtDialog("Blooms Begin: " + str(bloomRecord)) This returns nothing All of the other database functions work however there does not seem to be any way to obtain the content via va.GetRField(). In the below loop all vFieldValue are blank for vFieldID in range(1, vFieldsNum + 1): vFieldName = vs.GetFldName(vRecordHandle, vFieldID) vFieldType = vs.GetFldType(vRecordHandle, vFieldID) vFieldFlag = vs.GetFldFlag(vRecordHandle, vFieldID) vFieldValue = vs.GetRField(vRecordHandle, vRecordName, str(vFieldName)) vMessage = "Record: " + vRecordName + "\nField : " + str(vFieldID) + "\nFieldName: " + vFieldName + "\nFieldType: " + str(vFieldType) + "\nFieldFlag: " + str(vFieldFlag) + "\nFieldValue: " + vFieldValue + "\n" #vs.AlrtDialog(vMessage)
  6. Pat, Thanks for your reply. I get the desired results with the wildcards, meaning I get a 'true' in the cell when using.. =IF(('Plant Record'.'Blooms Begin'='*spring*'), 'true', 'false') and the data contain Spring and Winter When I use the following - all I get is a blank cell with no error =IF(('Plant Record'.'Blooms Begin'='*spring*'), PLANTIMAGE(2), 'false') I thought I would try and tackle a Python script to fix this but although I'm versed in Python the VS reference is pretty dense. I can't even find a reasonable way to debug within vectorworks to output print() statements to see what anything is doing. plant worksheet.vwx
  7. I'm trying to display a plant database image based on the flowering season using the following =IF(('Plant Record'.'Blooms Begin'='*spring*'), PLANTIMAGE(1), ' ') This is not working. I can test that =PLANTIMAGE(1) works on another column Any ideas anybody?
  8. @jeff prince If you are interested we could use your help modifying a database . lane@lanegoodkind.com
  9. @jeff prince How did you go about modifying the .usr file to add those columns?
  10. I agree completely. The wall tool is not yet there for Landscape and Civil. All landscape walls have footings and cap finishes with different finishes and dimensions than the core material.
  11. What about the wall top cap? Did you find a solution for the top cap?
  12. Still no interest here in this? After all these years we still can't spell check our sheet notes?
  13. Yes - doing either of those things crashes my Windows machines. Not the macs. This is probably not the space to troubleshoot this - I'll try and make a call into tech.
  14. Just an FYI here that for me anyway, trying to chose a new plant database location via workgroup folder crashes the program.
