  • Remeasure toggle...

    Next question, anyone seen any way to identify if the remeasure toggle is on or off?

    In the Edit Window, you can (if Show Feature Parameters is set to YES) check the RMEAS=(etc etc) section of code within a feature.
    Edit: the above is incorrect

    Are you trying to do this for every program, or just look at a specific feature and check?

      I Think RMES is "relative measure", not the same as "re-measure"...

        Sorry, was unclear. Doing it using Automation. Haven't found any mention of it in documentation, and a quick look with gettext provided nothing. But I'll let excel do a comparison and see if something pops out...

          To find the answer you create a small part program with one circle with remeasure=NO, and one with remeasure=YES, export the program as BASIC.

          By comparing what PC-DMIS generated you will find that it is the toggle RMEAS_TYPE (I wonder what Relative Measure is called internally?)!

            ' Set Re-Measure  = NO
              retval = DmisCommand.SetToggleString (1, RMEAS_TYPE, 0)
            ' Set Re-Measure  = YES
              retval = DmisCommand.SetToggleString (2, RMEAS_TYPE, 0)

          I just had to test Relative Measure too…

            ' Set Relative Measure Feature X  = CIR1
              retval = DmisCommand.PutText ("CIR1", RMEASFEATIDX, 0)
            ' Set Relative Measure Feature Y  = CIR1
              retval = DmisCommand.PutText ("CIR1", RMEASFEATIDY, 0)
            ' Set Relative Measure Feature Z  = CIR1
              retval = DmisCommand.PutText ("CIR1", RMEASFEATIDZ, 0)

            Good call! Simpler than my approach.

            Odd naming indeed, no wonder I didn´t find it. I'll get back when I've tried it.

              Worked! Thank you!
