    Select Case Unite
      Case 4: Unite = 10 'mm
      Case 5: Unite = 1   'cm
      Case 6: Unite = 0.01   'm
      Case Else: Unite = 1
    End Select

 i dont find help for this..

db.UnitMode is always = 0

i have try this :

Dim BlocT As BlockTable
        Dim tr As Transaction = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction
        BlocT = tr.GetObject(db.BlockTableId, OpenMode.ForRead)
        Dim Bloc As BlockTableRecord
        Bloc = tr.GetObject(BlocT(BlockTableRecord.ModelSpace), OpenMode.ForRead)
        Dim lay As Layout = tr.GetObject(Bloc.LayoutId, OpenMode.ForRead)
