Great job

(1) how do you bring up the config dialog box?
(2) how do I keep the leader style from changing back to the default whenever I move the reactor object that the leader is pointing to?
(3) can you list all of the routines commands.
Why is there never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over?

thank you Gary..

(1) how do you bring up the config dialog box?
Same as the older version..."DILCONFIG" command

(2) how do I keep the leader style from changing back to the default whenever I move the reactor object that the leader is pointing to?
I do not change any leader style. It must keep the existing leader style.

(3) can you list all of the routines commands.
DiLEADER come with HELP file. "dileader_en.mht" and include all screen shot and detailled informations.

Keep smile...

How about selecting textstyle and leader layer option.

Thanks again for sharing your routine.

Very impressive Andrea, I must say.

This program certainly out-does all your other free dynamic programs combined! And the huge amount of work, time and effort that you have ploughed into this project is evident. I admire your generosity with this program, as you could probably make quite a bit of money from it - like the others on your site.

And the suggestions keep on coming - you've certainly got your work cut out!

Lee

From a popup dialog list of styles and layers to choose from. Something like the small dialog pictured, maybe.

I would have both as popup_lists instead of list_box - as these can take up less room and can be nestled into a boxed_column/row on the dialog - but then perhaps more can be done with ObjectDCL  :wink:

thanks Lee. 

Maybe by having a choice to add some string in current layer ?

eg:
New string "LEAD"
current layer: M-PLUM-E  (Mechanical-Plumbing-Existing)
demanded layer: M-PLUM-*-E
result:=  M-PLUM-LEAD-E

and also add Suffix and Prefix...
or replacing some string in existing Layer name.

eg:
New String:"LEAD"
current layer: M-PLUM-E  (Mechanical-Plumbing-Existing)
demanded string to replace: PLUM
result:= M-LEAD-E

Because often some cie standard draw TEXT and LEADER on diffrent layer but in same discipline.

M-HVAC-UNIT-E
M-HVAC-TEXT-E
M-HEATING-DUCT-N
M-HEATING-TEXT-N

Hmmm..!!?  is that make sense ?   :?

It is not very important how complicated it is for me to develop a program...
I always learn and growing in my knowledge..   ;-)
I think the most important is that must be easy to use and offer more flexibility for the user.

I have made some test with Spline Leader..
and seem to work..
