is it possible to get the start and end station of each projected objects?


see picture. what i am doing is based on the different colour. they are geotechnical requirement for the minimul fill depth. so i am thinking about making a program to put in a profile for me and then put horizontal curves. so don't need to do anything by hand. good starting point at least. save a lot of time and not really hard to code either.

Why not use the projected objects in plan view to get the StationOffset values? Then use the elevation of the point of the projected item.

Did you check the following API ?


ProfileView.FindStationAndElevationAtXY() Method -> Finds the station and elevation values at the given X,Y coordinate.
