I´m very proud to have managed to:
- create a cell in a dgnlib that reads Item types (area, number of rooms, bathrooms, etc) attached to shapes.
- I´m placing this cell as a label and I´m able to read out these item types in my working files.
so far so good. (it looks like this)
I need help with:-Re associating the label to a shape when association is broken. like I do with any dimension.
- If I decide I want to now show the perimeter of the room. I would change the cell and update the label. In this case the association is also broken. Is there anyway to keep the association or in the worst case scenario re-link it when it breaks?
Thank you very much!
I did some tests and I suggest using the tool "Modify element". If the association is broken with "Modify element" you should be able to re-associate the label.
For the second question, I tried to reproduce the issue and if I update the cell (Rpleace cell tool) I lost the association. I am investigating deeply about this, do you have a test case that I could check?
