[iLogic] Control Position of Parts List

400 Views, 2 Replies

Hello all,

 

I am creating a drawing controlled by ilogic. The assembly can vary in size considerably so I have set the IDW to change between sheet size A3 and A2 accordingly using ilogic. However, when the sheet size is changed, the parts list stays in a static position.

 

Currently, the parts list is situated in the top right corner up against the title block and the border. So when changing from Size A3 to Size A2, the parts list ends up in the middle of the page. Is there anyway i can control the position of the parts list so it changes with the sheet size chage?

 

I know I could simply move the partslist to the bottom left corner, which is a work around. However, I'd like to be able to keep the drawings in line with the company standard.

 

As always, any help is appreciated

 

Many Thanks

get partslist's property position, hope it helps.

 

'get paper size and set position

dim newposition as point2d

newposition = oPartslist.position

 

newposition.x=35

newposition.y=10

 

oPartslist.position = newposition
