block attributes

Good morning

 

I am trying to create a block with 1 attribute (ELEVATION) showing a finished floor level and another text (field) to show another level derived by the sum of the attribute value + and additional (fixed) number, say 100.

 

I have tried using fields inside an ATTRIBUTE or a simple DTEXT but the field does not update, it only picks up the DEFAULT of the attribute, not the user entered input.

 

How can I do this?

 

attached is the block

 

THANKS

 

best regards

Instead of a text with field, you need define an attribute for the second figure.

After inserting the block, modify value of the second attribute with a field.

Please try attached block.

THANKS VERY MUCH!

 

this really works

 

question: how did you get the block names inside the field list? I never could achieve that...

can you explain it in steps? I might need to create more in the future

 

I'd really appreciate - thanks
