I'm following this tutorial, trying to create a field in a dynamic block to show the length of a line. If I have the attribute's "constant" value checked, the field shows up in my drawing as "Length: ######." However, when I uncheck the "constant" checkbox, the field doesn't show up at all, even after I run "UPDATEFIELD" and "REGEN."
I'm using AutoCAD Mechanical 2009, SP2
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by ojuris. See the answer in context.
use command ATTSYNC to refresh your attributes, when You change them in block
after that all is OK for me in Your block
Thanks. That worked perfectly.
I ended up just using a dimension for this block, though, so it would update automatically.
