There is no specific code for trimming.

You can use send command to trim object.

Thanks for your reply.


How to use sendcommand for crossing option as the crossing option does not accept co-ordinates. Instead it asks to pick a point on screen.I have attached a drawing, I have tried many ways to get the final output as you seen in the drawing but i cannot.

Maybe an idea to get the objects, try to .IntersectWith and manually replace the last coordinate with the InterSect-Point? The last coordinate can be determined by the Clicked Points (I think you use GenEntity?)


Util..getentity Object1, PickPoint1

Util..getentity Object2, PickPoint2


IntersectPoint=object1.IntersectWith (Object2,acExtendNone)


IntersectPoint( [0-2] ) has the coordinates...
