Editing Attributes in a Block
« on: October 30, 2006, 04:26:35 PM »
After inserting a block I need to rotate the attribute and change the alignment property

When Rotation Angle = 0 ' Nothing, the block is already setup this way
= 90 ' I need to rotate attr. 270 and change alignment to bottomCenter
=180 ' I need to rotate attr. 180 and change alignment to middleright
= 270 ' I need to roatate attr. 90 and change alignment to TopCenter

I'm just gettign weird resuts..Any help would be appreciated...

What's your code look like?

Are you expressing your angles in degrees or radians?

Sorry Guys, it was hard for me to explain what was going on exactly.  Basically, my problem was that I was rotating an Attribute in a Block from the Attributes INsertion Point, and the point I thought was the Attribute Insertion point was NOT, and so when I rotated, my text "moved" to different spots when I rotated at different angles. 

Once I figured out how to set my TextIns point to the correct coordinates, everything worked great.

Sorry for any inconvenience....

Glad you figured it out.  Sounds like I was barking up the wrong tree anyway.
