Worksheet position

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to find out what the size and location of a worksheet on a drawing and then re-set the location?

When I re-calc my "Materials list" it changes size and I have to manually move it so that the bottom right corner is in the old location. As it is now the top left stays put and everything else changes to suit... I haven't found a vectorscript function that will get or set the "image location".Thanks, Heather rolleyes.gif" border="0

Heather, Name your worksheet,it's size and distance from the drawing area inthe CONST section and your good to go.Dave grin.gif" border="0 -------------------------------------------PROCEDURE WS;CONST WksName = 'My_WS_Name'; {Your worksheet name} Top =1; {Worksheet Top} Left=1; {Worksheet Left} Bottom=2; {Worksheet Bottom} Right=2; {Worksheet Right} WSPositionX=1"; { X Distance from drawing area } WSPositionY=1"; { Y Distance from drawing area }VAR WksH,WSImage : HANDLE; ws1X, ws1Y, ws2X, ws2Y ,d1X, d1Y, d2X, d2Y :REAL;

BEGIN WksH := Getobject ( WksName ); ShowWS(WksH,True); SetWSPlacement(WksH,Top,Left,Bottom,Right); RecalculateWS(WksH); ShowWS(WksH,False); WSImage:=GetWSImage(WksH); GetBBox(WSImage,ws1X, ws1Y, ws2X, ws2Y ); GetDrawingSizeRect(d1X, d1Y, d2X, d2Y ); HMove(WSImage,(d2X - ws2X) - WSPositionX, ( d2Y - ws2Y ) + WSPositionY ); END;RUN ( WS );

Thanks Fuge,

Works Great grin.gif" border="0 Since my drawings have several layer with several scales, I added a little bit to it. (You'll recongnize some of my additions to) When I get a spare minute (ya right) I want to make it so the worksheet is positioned relative to my drawing boarder rather that the page... We also print our drawings on severl printer on different size papers.

Again, thanks a million.

Heather
