Assign plotstyle to Attribute definition in block

I am trying to assign a plotstyle to attribute while creating a block.
First I create the block, then I insert the Blockref, in that process I have errors assigining a plotstyle to the attribute.
(I have also tried to assign the plotstyle while creating the block and attribute with poor results.)

Here is my attempt to do this:


            For Each objId As ObjectId In blkTblR
                Dim obj As DBObject = objId.GetObject(OpenMode.ForRead)
                If TypeOf obj Is AttributeDefinition Then
                    Dim ad As AttributeDefinition = objId.GetObject(OpenMode.ForRead)
                    Dim ar As AttributeReference = New AttributeReference()
                    ar.SetAttributeFromBlock(ad, blkRef.BlockTransform)
                    ar.Position = ad.Position.TransformBy(blkRef.BlockTransform)

                    ar.PlotStyleName = "025"

                    tr.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(ar, True)
                End If


Best wishes,

Without seeing the rest of the code and just off the top of my head, I don't see a transaction and you are only opening the attribute definition for read, not write.
