Profile Band - Spanning Pipe Labels

608 Views, 2 Replies

I was looking at placing pipe information into a Profile Band. I see that I can include the following properties in a pipe label in the profile band:


<[Total Slope Across Span(FP|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|Sn|OF)]>
<[Number of Pipes in Span(GC|UN|Sn)]>
<[Drop Across Span(Um|P2|RN|AP|GC|UN|Sn|OF)]>


Only problem is they don't actually give me the information of a spanning pipe, only a single pipe. I see no way of choosing which pipes will be spanned. Am i missing something in the creation of the profile band that allows me to choose the spanning pipes or is this broken?


Any thoughts on this are appreciated :smileyhappy:

Those properties can't be used in a band (well, they can, but you only get one pipe,) only in labels and tables. Maybe you can find a way to make using labels work for you.

Thats what I thought, but I didnt want to believe it. The goal was to label spanning slope and length of the pipes in the profile band. At the moment we have created a pipe label that gets moved to the profile band. It works, but is not ideal. Thanks for your help.
