I am currently working with fx parameters and iLogic to drive a model and it's corresponding drawing to change based on a single user parameter.
I have managed to get the drawing to update both the scale of the views I need and the size of the sheet with the change in parameter using the following rule:
ActiveSheet.ChangeSize("A1", MoveBorderItems :=True)
ActiveSheet.ChangeSize("A2", MoveBorderItems :=True)
However when i attempt to use this with the title block using the function:
ActiveSheet.TitleBlock="My Title Block"
in place of the sheet change size it brings up the error message:
Error in rule: Drawing Title Block, in document: Drawing
The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG))
I have read elsewhere that this is due to me having prompted entries for the scale and drawn by fields, however when i use the function designed for prompted entries:
ActiveSheet.SetTitleBlock("Other Title Block", "promptedEntry1", "promptedEntry2")
It fills in the prompted entry fields from the code and if i change these entries in the "edit field" option they are overwritten when it is updated.
Is there a way have the prompted entries when you open the drawing fill in the "promptedEntry1" field in the rule so that I can use the rule? Or am I going about it the wrong way?
I should point out i'm new to iLogic and no-one in my workplace can use it so each person changing the "promptedEntry1" field to the scale they wish isn't a wise move.
Thanks for your help!
If all title blocks have the same prompted entries then you could just
1) create a list of the current ones with their corresponding values
2) swap the title block and fill it with the values you stored
