Named User Linestyles

Recommended Posts

When (which version) did CA add the ability to name our user defined "line styles" and retrieve the name from the Ruby attributes?

I remember years ago that the user defined "line styles" were only given a number and there wasn't any way to get the actual name.  I know I had mentioned it to someone at CA (Jason I think) but I had no clue that the real names were now available.


Whoever did it and whenever they did it -- Mucho Gracias.

In version X10 Chief was exporting name, value pairs. Since X11, Ruby integration significantly improved. Now Ruby engine has access to objects

So we have 

drawing_group: 21


layer : cad,_plan_view

layer_line_color : 255 

layer_line_style : 111 

layer_line_weight : 18 

layer_set : "Plan View Set" 

layer_text_style : "Default Text Style" 

line_style : setback_line

line_weight : 18

object_type : cad_line 


Still a little different from the app, and not all properties are available...
