Hi,

 

You did not mention the type of the Inventor object you wanted to apply the Color to.

 

If the object is under Intent control, try the following:

1. Call GetHostObject()  to step from Intent Part to Inventor object

2. Use the .Color setter on that object.

 

 

Thank you,

Hi,

 

I'm talking about standard design as :IvGeneralNote.

I don't believe this is possible via StyleOverride

Looking at the Inventor API help there is a list of the options that are available via StyleOverride

mk:@MSITStore:C:\Users\farren.young\Desktop\Inventor%202013%20API.chm::/HTML/FormattedTextTags_Overview.htm

 

Style Override <StyleOverride>

 

The StyleOverride tag defines all text style information. The various style options are defined within the tag using attributes. These attributes are described below.

 

Font – Sets which font to use. The input to this attribute is the name of the font.

FontSize – Sets the size of the font. The input to this attribute is the size in centimeters.

Bold – Allows you to turn bolding on or off. The input to this attribute is the String "True" or "False".

Italic – Allows you to turn italics on or off. The input to this attribute is the String "True" or "False".

Underline – Allows you to turn underlining on or off. The input to this attribute is the String "True" or "False".

 

As Alex mentioned, you will need to override the color property of your object.

To get the color you have to create it using the inventor application transientobjects class.

gethostobject(me).set_color(%%inventorapplication.transientobjects.createcolor(0, 255, 0)) 'RGB value

I found best way, I think so.

Just use Style for Note Text.
