Flipped Symbols in Walls

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to get the orientation (AKA flippification) of a symbol in a wall, and change it using VS?


Asking for a friend.

GetSymRot(ghParm) and IsObjectFlipped(ghParm) need to be used in combination to get the flip status. I doubt whether you can find something that will flip a symbol however.

If these are symbols instead of PIOs, then you might be able to get the exisiting settings as Julian suggest and then delete the symbol and use the InsertSymbol command to replace it with one flipped the way you want/need.


Be careful with this as if there are records attached to the symbol you will have to transfer that data also (if it is important).

It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust in the bin (wind) ;-)
