I am trying to create a property definition that will display the elevation of a space object. I looked through the automatic properties and did not find anything that looked like the elevation.
I have tried the following but was unable to achieve any success.
On Error Resume Next
Set AcadApp = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application")
Set Obj = AcadApp.Activedocument.Objectidtoobject("[ObjectID
RESULT = Obj.elevation
That formula does work if i swap elevation with say height, width,length or any of the properties found in the automatic property list that are a single word. I know the elevation is there I just don't know how to access it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I thought I would post the solution that I finally found for this issue. The property that I really needed for the space object was its location. The above method did not work because Location is a 3D vector and needed to be converted to an array. Below is the solution that works for me. Kudos to Hallex for pointing me in the right direction for another issue that led me to the solution to this problem.
