I have created a rectangle whose length changes.
The value of the paameter "Dist1" is this length field that I associate to the attribute value. Basically, echo length from Dist1 into the attrib value.
The problem is when I insert the block into the drawing the value is shown as "DIST1", even after regen.
Once I pull the grip point to a new length and regen it still shows "DIST1".
If I go into the ddedit and select the edit box (for multiline data field) the shown value will correct itself, but only one time.
If I change the length again, the dimension does not update.
It worked fine when I tested the block but is having issues days later.
Any suggestions? thx .j.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is FIELDEVAL set to 31?
No sir it was set to zero, let me check this now.
...And there it works now....Thank you very much, kind sir.
thx again for the help. Would you know where I could find that information, I searched all morning for it on the web but was unable to ferret it out. Thank you very much. .j.
I found this in the AutoCad Command Reference
To update fields automatically
For example, to update fields only when the file is opened, saved, or plotted, enter 7.
Controls how fields are updated.
The setting is stored as a bitcode using the sum of the following values:
Updated on open
Updated on save
Updated on plot
Updated on use of ETRANSMIT
Updated on regeneration
I hope this helps
