Questions about dimensions?

I have set up a dimension style in vb .net, I am having rouble setting the suffix and the linear precision?


Here is what I currently have:


Dim acDimStyleTbl As DimStyleTable
acDimStyleTbl = acTrans.GetObject(acCurDb.DimStyleTableId, _ OpenMode.ForRead)


Dim sDimStyleName As String = "test"


Dim acDimStyleTblRec As DimStyleTableRecord = New DimStyleTableRecord()


acDimStyleTblRec.Dimscale = 20
acDimStyleTblRec.Dimtxt = 0.18

acDimStyleTblRec.Name = sDimStyleName



acTrans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(acDimStyleTblRec, True)


acCurDb.Dimstyle = acDimStyleTblRec.ObjectId


I need to add a single quotation mark for the suffix (  " ie: inches ) and I want the precision at '.00' Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried using the "DimStyleTableRecord.Dimpost" and "DimStyleTableRecord.Dimdec" properties ?


Hope it helps.

Thanks, this did work. The only problem I had was triny to get  " to show up for inches and I got that to work by using:


DimStyleTableRecord.Dimpost = (Chr(34))
