Finding the dimType of a dimension in a drawing

Recommended Posts

Hello Vectworkscript profesionals,


I'm trying to write an import and export system do export selected objects in a drawing to a text file and vise versa.


For importng a linearDim, I need the dimType, but can't find a way to determine this from a dimension object in the source document.


Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks Pat for your answer.


The value of Dimension Type is always 0, constrained. I need to know if it is horizontal or vertical constrained.

What I did is look at the dimension text and the delta X and Y. That way I can determine if it is horizontal or vertical (most of the time).
