How to get the (data) tagged object?

Recommended Posts

When tagging an object using a data tag, a connection between the two is established.

I'd like to find a way to get the handle of the objects that was tagged by a certain data tag.

In my mind a command could look like this

hTaggedObj = vs.DT_GetAssociatedObj( hDT )

The only commands about data tags I could find in the developer wiki are these two:




The List View Ex dialog of the debug mode wasn't much help either.

What about this:

def IsTagged(h):
    result = False;
    num = vs.GetNumAssociations(h)
    assH = None
    assKind = None
    value = None
    i = 0;
    while(i < num and result == False):
      assH, assKind, value = vs.GetAssociation(h, i);
      if (assKind == 37):
        result = True;
        i = i + 1;
        return result, assH;

This would help finding Tagged Object. This was some I found in the Forum here. It works in a Marionette Object, which is inside a DataTag to find the tagged Object. So I think you could loop all Objects and check with vs.GetAssociation() type 37. Then you have the Tag and could check the Kind of Tag.

This one, used while in Annotations, uses the selexted Datatag and jumps to the tagged Object in yours Model and select it.

import vs;
objs = []
def Name(h):
	hLayerObj = vs.GetLayer(h)
	hLayerAct = vs.ActLayer()
	hAss, iAssKind, iAssVal = vs.GetAssociation(h, 0)
	if hAss != 0:

vs.ForEachObject(Name, "((INSYMBOL & INOBJECT & INVIEWPORT & (VSEL=TRUE)))")

if len(objs) == 1:
	hLayObjs1 = vs.GetLayer(objs[0])
	vs.DoMenuTextByName('Group Navigation Chunk', 2)	#Verlasse Ergänzungen
	vs.Layer(vs.GetLName(hLayObjs1))					#Wechsel Ebene
	vs.SetPref(94, True)								#Aktuivere Modellansicht
	vs.SetPref(14, True)								#Zeige Objekte auerhalb Gruppe

	for x in objs:
		hParObj = vs.GetParent(x)
		iTypParObj = vs.GetTypeN(hParObj)
		if iTypParObj == 11:
			vs.DoMenuTextByName('Group Navigation Chunk', 1)
		if iTypParObj == 15:
			vs.DoMenuTextByName('Group Navigation Chunk', 1)
		vs.DoMenuTextByName ('Fit To Objects', 0)


Hope this one is helpful. Have fun,
