rtos DIMZIN UNITMODE Revisited

Recommended Posts

David Bethel

It's been quite a while since I've had to deal with architectural formatted strings

 

DIMZIN 0

UNITMODE 0

 

Real parameter 11.0

I need to output formatted as 0'-11"

I do not want the leading 0 suppressed, but I do want the dash separator. 

 

For this project, the remainder formatting isn't important ( fraction or decimal are both acceptable )

 


(rtos 11.0 4 2)  ;consistantly not returning my intended results

 

I cab't remember if there are other sysvars that control this action ?

 

Any Ideas ?  Regards  -David

I think you'll need to set dimzin to 1 (Includes zero feet and precisely zero inches) A setting of 0 suppresses 0 feet and the dash.

Thanks Al !  LOL  Older ( much older )  help files only mention that 0-3 pertain to feet and inches.  It gives no explanations.  Add my memory ain't what it was !  -David
