tchwiesz posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI have a dynamic block with a flip parameter - It works fine in my reference file but when I copy and paste it into another drawing the horizontal flip no longer works. I've tried purging and auditing the drawings but to no avail. What gives? doesntwork.dwg works.dwg
tchwiesz posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI'm trying to develop a dynamic block that takes two attributes input from the user (lets call them "x" and "y") and then divides them by the distance ("dist") of a line within the block that may be stretched. Then the result of this formula ((x + y) / dist) is to be displayed as an M-TEXT within the block definition. The problem I'm experiencing is that no matter what I do I can't convey the value of the attributes to the M-TEXT within the block - It only shows their default values and there's nothing I can do to update it with the current attribute values for the block. In other words: Lets say my default values for "x" and "y" are "0" and "1", respectively. I then change the value of "x" to "10" and "y" to "20" on the instance of the block. My M-TEXT has a field in it that references a "formula", and the formula references object->value for both the x and y attributes: "x + y" as the formula. However instead of showing me "30", the block instead shows "1" as these were my default values. I've attached the file I'm working with as an example (although the fields are named differently than what's here). I've posted the question to AutoDesk's forums as well using a more true example of what I'm doing (I simplified it here because it's been difficult to explain what the problem is), so if you would like to read my other attempt at explaining the problem, check out: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/autocad-2013-2014-2015-2016/value-of-attribute-doesn-t-show-up-when-used-within-formula/td-p/5878314 WIP.dwg
