    Dimension Trailer Text

    Try changing the criteria in ForEachObject() to: (INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (T=DIMENSION) & (SEL=TRUE))

    List object style in a worksheet

    Actually I did know Pat and have used it in a worksheet previously. I just forgot. It's there in the insert function list.

    List object style in a worksheet

    I agree Pat. Some invisible characters in the code I suspect.

    List object style in a worksheet

    This script works for me. Pat's one doesn't. You have to call the script name not the procedure name however, in RunScript(). Procedure T; BEGIN WSScript_SetResStr(GetPluginStyle(WSScript_GetObject)); END; Run(T);

    It's possible you have picked up an invisible character by copying from the browser. Try deleting the last line and everything below it then retyping it manually. Or copy the script to a text editor and turn on invisible characters to see if you can spot something.

    It works for me. What is the error?

    Dimension Trailer Text

    You can do this using the single most powerful procedure in VS: ForEachObject. It also filters out other object so will only affect dimensions in this case. PROCEDURE DimTypical; PROCEDURE DoIt(h1 : HANDLE); BEGIN SetObjectVariableString(h1, 10, ' Typ.'); ResetObject(h1); END; BEGIN ForEachObject(DoIt, (T=DIMENSION) & Sel); END; Run(DimTypical);

    Yep ResetObject(Selection); will do it. Also note there is a missing semi colon on line 6.

    Suppressing the Default OIP at creation

    It works for me Sam and definitely needs to be in the kObjOnInitXProperties event (5). It's possible it also needs this: CONST kObjXPropAcceptStates = 18; gFlag := SetObjPropVS(kObjXPropAcceptStates, TRUE); Also have you tried quitting and restarting Vw? I find this necessary sometimes even in developer mode.

    Suppressing the Default OIP at creation

    CONST kObjXPropShowPrefDialogWhen = 32; kCustomObjectPrefNever = 0; kCustomObjectPrefAlways = 1; kCustomObjectPrefNew = 2; blah blah blah... in event loop 5: gFlag := SetObjPropCharVS(kObjXPropShowPrefDialogWhen, Chr(kCustomObjectPrefNever));

    Rotating and offsetting text

    I'd probably use Pat's suggestion, but to answer your specific question, you would use HRotate() and HMove().

    Defining Height of a Wall Style

    Wall styles don't typically define wall heights. Rather they define what is used to control the wall or components heights (layer wall height, storey level, etc), as well as having an offset. And of course walls don't have to be level on the top or bottom, and can also be controlled by slabs and roofs, making the task even more fraught. But if you really want to delve into it, then look in the Function Reference in the Objects - Architectural section, for things like SetComponentWallTopOffset().

    Dialog with n-number of items

    It's conceivable but would be messy, and could also be problematic if there were so many hatches that the dialogue was too large to fit on the screen. Normally you would would use a list browser for something like this, which would see scroll bars appear if the list was longer than the size of the list browser.

    Defining Height of a Wall Style

    see http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:SetWallOverallHeights FUNCTION SetWallOverallHeights( theWall :HANDLE; botBoundType :INTEGER; botBoundStory :INTEGER; botLayerLevelType :STRING; botOffset :REAL; topBoundType :INTEGER; topBoundStory :INTEGER; topLayerLevelType :STRING; topOffset :REAL) : BOOLEAN; Julian

    "Mirror" script returns point error

    Is Mirror a function in Vectorscript? It's not on the Developer site...
