Re: ilogic form dropdown?

Hi mcgyvr,


You're correct. There isn't a way to point the form to the iProperty and have a list, at least not that I'm aware of.


Therefore we need to use the paramter list in the form, and hand the value from the paramter to the iProperty. I used a model parameter in the example, but you could also use a user parameter if a model parameter would not work.


The iLogic forms have some limitations compared to standard VB userforms, but I'm not sure why certain option are included / not included for the controls.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Autodesk needs more forward thinkers or better "brainstorming" sessions.
