  1. Thank you very much to all of you. I just have to insert a CASE OF, so. Great great community, here Best regards Francesco
  2. Hello. I haven't scripted for some years and never used a lot modern dialogs. I try to know how Pushbuttons work.. in fact, what happens when the user clicks on such a thing ? What happens and how to retrieve data passed, what kind of data and how to use it ? If someone can help, many thanks in advance Francesco
  3. Hello...nice question. The first basic thing would be allowing VS to handle jpegs in dialogs and in info palettes. To be able to manage dialogs ? la Archicad. 2 : handling buttons 3 : Syntax colouring 4 : drawing dialogs as in Visual Basic or Delphi or... 5 : Pascal is relatively nice, but some cad packages allow scripting in more than one language. Thanks Francesco
  4. Thanks for your reply. The button deal seems more hermetic to me, anyway. There's some info around ? Francesco
  5. Auto-answer. OK. The trick is to create symbols by script and erasing them after having called the dialog. Simple. 1. PIO (door for example) 2. Check-box in the info palette calling the dialog (a vss in this case) 3. Go back to the PIO after having hit 'OK' and uncheck the check-box. The symbols created are erased by the way. I found these problems : - The screen doesn't regenerate even with 'redrawall'. There's to put a 'SetZoom(GetZoom)' in the pio code. - The latest symbol drawn remains in the ressource palette.
  6. Hello. This works...until there's a symbol. What about a permanent image control in a dialog ? A handle to a picture ? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello. VW 8 (or 7, I don't remember) had plugins uncrypted. If you find some old cd, install & take a look.
  8. Hi Imt ... how about a clue to get VW 12 in Belgium now ? Thx.
  9. "...what would you like to see coming out of VectorWorks that you don't currently?" Hello. Thanks for asking. I think we'll have to wait sompe long monthes for '12' here in Belgium. Anyway, what is described in the pdf flyer seems very exciting. From my point of view, it would be interesting to allow us to open more than one 'instance' of the design space for a same project, maybe in the same way as sheet tabs in excel. So switching from a viewport where you control your plans, details,.. to tabs with predefined views of the project would allow you to quickly modify things. Maybe a control-command click on a tab would open it as a standalone window. And/or : opening different files in tabs + viewports where views from different files would be allowed. Just suggestions. Please don't take this for blind criticism and sorry for my limited english. All the best. Francesco
  10. You're right. As in Sketchup. Another similar wish, for layers :'grey others' with snapping enabled. And by the way : when you begin to draw a line or rect, just type their dimensions and the job is done (Still Sketchup idea). Regards, Francesco
  11. Thank you all. So it's PC here and didn't know about this macro utility. Regards Francesco
  12. Hello.. maybe someone can help me. Sometimes I have to work in another office where I installed the 11.5 VW too. I carry the dongle from a place to the other. Anyway, I am not able to carry the VW preferences. I tried to copy the 'Plugins' and 'Standards' - Standards is 'Templates' here. My shortcuts are not imported. Is there some file I did forget ? (PC, VWA 11.5.x, Localized belgian french version) Thank you for your suggestions Francesco
  13. I don't know if I'm in the right place, anyway : (...) VAR P1,P2 : POINT; (...) RECT(P1.x,P1.y,P2.x,P2.y); (...) Is a little heavy to manage. What about, whenever points are to be written, to be allowed to do this : RECT(P1,P2); ? With the ability left to extract x or y components with the dot notation ? Thank you Francesco
  14. Thank you. Meanwhile I found a topic about this in the archives. Best regards, Francesco
  15. Hello When clipping a surface with another, Lactlayer doesn't point on the resulting object. Does somebody can give me a hint on how to retrieve this ? Thank you Francesco
