Re: ilogic form dropdown?

Hi mcgyvr,


You're correct. There isn't a way to point the form to the iProperty and have a list, at least not that I'm aware of.


Therefore we need to use the paramter list in the form, and hand the value from the paramter to the iProperty. I used a model parameter in the example, but you could also use a user parameter if a model parameter would not work.


The iLogic forms have some limitations compared to standard VB userforms, but I'm not sure why certain option are included / not included for the controls.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Sure would have made life easier..

Autodesk needs more forward thinkers or better "brainstorming" sessions.


blah I'll just stick with the ugly inputbox rules I've already got..

I'm trying to do a similar code that dynamically updates a drop down menu with the selection of a primary criteria from a drop down menu.  Looking at the Parameters menu it works flawlessly.  When attempting to do it via a Form it doesn't work.  I don't get the second menu as a drop down but only as a text field for input.  What am I missing?

edit: NVM, had to re-add the field after the coding.
