Custom Sizes for MvParts

How do I add MultiViewParts with custom sizes? I've got a MvPart which is just a cylinder. I have a Diameter and a Height parameter defined in my part as list parameters. It's also flagged for custom sizes.


When using:


DataExpandedTable exTbl = PartManager.GetPartTable(query, 10);

DataRecord newRec = exTbl.DataRecords[0];

newRec.DataFields.FindByContextAndIndex(Context.GeometryModelParameter, 1).ValueDouble = 10; //change Diameter


MultiViewPart mvPart = new MultiViewPart();



PartManager.CreatePartViaRecord(exTbl, newRec, mvPart);


Autocad ignores any changes I make to the DataRecord newRec before calling CreatePartViaRecord and inserts the cylinder with the default sizes. I don't want to add additional sizes to the Catalog if I can avoid it. I just want to define custom sizes while adding the cylinder to the database. I can do this manually within the drawing so I'm assuming it can be done via code.
