Script to Change Dimension Trailer

Recommended Posts

This script came into being because our office standard has our room names as trailers of it's dimension.

The tedious task was having to select the dimension, navigating to the trailer text box in the object info palette and changing it, then clicking out to regenerate the dimension display.

You can use this as a script or create Tool PIO to use it. I've done the latter.

Thanks to LarryO for pointing out the Resetobject Procedure

Procedure ChangeDimTrailer;

VAR

h2Dim : HANDLE;

x1,y1 : REAL;

oldTrailer, NewTrailer : STRING;

BEGIN

DSelectAll;

GetPt(x1,y1);

h2Dim:=PickObject(x1,y1);

IF h2Dim<>NIL THEN BEGIN

CASE GetTypeN(h2Dim) OF

63 : BEGIN

oldTrailer := GetObjectVariableString(h2Dim,10);

NewTrailer:=STRDIALOG('Type in the New Name for the Trailer', oldTrailer);

SetObjectVariableString(h2Dim, 10, NewTrailer);

END;

END;

END;

ResetObject(h2Dim);

END;

RUN(ChangeDimTrailer);
