  1. Y'all just need to stop this. Your logic is making WAY too much sense... ;-) +27
  2. Yes, DLVP = "Design Layer ViewPort" Regarding animating this, your best bet might be AnimatiomWorks: http://www.ozcad.com.au/products/animationworks.php.
  3. Kevin - This doesn't totally address your request but might help a little. In the attached file is a "Curved Truss Adjust" script. With a circle truss selected, it will let you change the truss width and circle diameter, retaining the circle center. LandruCircleTruss.vwx
  4. I can't get the link in your post to work, but...is the raking approach in this webinar recording the method to which you're referring: http://www.landrudesign.com/Webinar2014FollowUp.htm? Someone else might have a better/different solution but the one in the movie is the one I use on a regular basis.
  5. As a member of that panel, I don't know that I'd agree with that assessment. It might be more accurate to say that VW should offer a SAMPLE (not imposed) structure and a robust over-ride/mapping system for those who find that sample to conflict with proven work-flows. Also, if VW is going to push a structure standard (Classes and Layers), it has to be one that doesn't contradict "best-practices" paradigm given for other disciplines as the current offering does.
  6. Grant - 2 questions from your first request, just to make sure I'm hearing you clearly: 1) Decimal rounding: Are you meaning the "Running Length" OIP text or the on-drawing text? Or, both? 2) Leg length: Are you meaning the widths of the 2 legs that would result from a center opening being defined? Thanks...
  7. This might help. See the use of "Value." Regards - Part_Counts.vwx
  8. For anyone still following this thread, extended legs and a vertical bottom face option are now part of the official StageRamp 2 tool. Follow the link in the signature if you'd like more info...
  9. Good catch, Josh. Try this, instead: Procedure ClassToggle2; CONST kTestClass = 'NonPlot-Loci'; kClassON = 0; kClassOff = -1; kClassGray = 2; VAR DialogVisState : BOOLEAN; VisState : INTEGER; PROCEDURE ClassSwitch(H:HANDLE); BEGIN IF SetVPClassVisibility(H,kTestClass,VisState) THEN BEGIN END; END; BEGIN DialogVisState := YNDialog(Concat('Do you want the Class "',kTestClass,'" visible?')); IF DialogVisState THEN VisState := kClassON ELSE VisState := kClassOff; ForEachObject(ClassSwitch,(ST=REGVIEWPORT)); END; RUN(ClassToggle2);
  10. If you still want a script...: Procedure ClassToggle; CONST kTestClass = 'NonPlot-Loci'; VAR VisStatus : INTEGER; BEGIN VisStatus := GetCVis(kTestClass); IF VisStatus=0 THEN HideClass(kTestClass) ELSE ShowClass(kTestClass); Layer(GetLName(ActLayer)); END; RUN(ClassToggle); (Just change "NonPlot-Loci" to be the Class you're wanting to control.
  11. Andy, you mean, like this? Note the vertical bottom end option, along with the automatic addition of necessary legs... ;-)
  12. Andy - At-present, the tool "thinks" it is sitting on the ground plane. Allowing for situations like you describe is on The List, though...
  13. Andy - The color spec'ed in the "Text Attributes" area of the "Text Optoins..." dialog controls the arrow color, along with any text you've shown. Regards -
  14. For any of you; who've had success using kObjectCreated to test for creation and duplication - and, using that to set up a unique ID field - how are you accounting for the duplication of multiple selected objects?
  15. Fabrice - While I can't speak to what is going on with the French version, I can offer 2 things: 1) In the "Classes" dialog, "<Blended Screen Class>" means that no special sub-Classes will be created and all object geometry remains assigned to the over-all object's Class. If, for a given element, you choose or define a Class other than "<Blended Screen Class>," the overall object is assigned to a Class and that specific element's geometry within the overall is assigned to the sub-Class. 2) Don't be surprised if/when only 2 or 3 Classes are created - even if you've selected Classes other than "<Blended Screen Class>" in the "Classes" dialog. Classes are only created when actual geometry is created. For example, if you've defined a Class for Coverage Zones but have never toggled the "Show Coverage Zone" option, that Class won't show up. Make sense?? Regards -
