Hi - Im setting up a standard steel plate template file and I was hoping someone could help me with iLogic (as I am useless with it!)
I want to create a rule that will warn the user when the plate thickness they are using is not standard. I have already created a multivalue parameter for plate thickness, which lists all standard steel plate thickness's and also allows for custom values.
I was hoping I could create a rule that would prompt a dialogue box warning when the user creates a custom value for plate thickness.
I know this can be done, but like I said, Im bloody useless with iLogic and find it hard to come across relevent examples and/or tutorials online.
Thanks and advance and regards,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here's a quick example (and sample file) that compares a user input value to the MultiValue.List parameter value and informs the user if the input is not in the list.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
'get the Inventor user name from the Inventor Options oName= ThisApplication.GeneralOptions.UserName 'define an arraylist to hold the list of thicknesses Dim values As New ArrayList() 'set the list of thickness to the array list values = MultiValue.List("Edge_Thickness") 'prompt the user for input oUserInput = InputBox("Enter a thickness", "Current Thickness = " & Edge_Thickness, Edge_Thickness) 'check to see if the Thickness arraylist contains the value input by the user If Not values.Contains(oUserInput) Then MessageBox.Show("Hello " & oName & ", this is a custom thickness.", "iLogic") End If 'set the model parameter to use the input value Edge_Thickness = oUserInput 'update the model iLogicVb.UpdateWhenDone = True 'zoom all ThisApplication.ActiveView.Fit
