Assign colors to dimension lines, arrowheads, and text

Hi All,

 

I just created a dimension style called "Test" and I am now attempting to use its DIMCLRD and DIMCLRT properties without success.

 

DIMCLRD is supposed to assign a color to dimension lines and arrowheads. Does anyone know how to use this property to assign, say, color index 140?

 

AS well, DIMCLRT is supposed to assign a color to dimension text. Any ideas on how it is used?

 

A code snippet on what I am attempting to accomplish is posted below:

 

 

Dim tblRec As DimStyleTableRecord = New DimStyleTableRecord()

tblRec.Name = "Test"

tblRec.Dimasz = 0.08    ' Sets the arrowhead size

tblRec.Dimclrd = ???     ' Here is where I am attempting to assign a color to dimension lines on this dimstyle

tblRec.Dimclrd = ???     ' Here is where I am attempting to assign a color to dimension text on this dimstyle

 

 

Any ideas?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Try this:
tblrRec.Dimclrt = Colors.Color.FromColorIndex(Colors.ColorMethod.ByAci, 140)
tblrRec.Dimclrd = Colors.Color.FromColorIndex(Colors.ColorMethod.ByAci, 140)
