Can the FENCE FILE or FF= commands be used in a Batch Process? What is an example?
Below is an example of how the FF= or FENCE FILE commands could be used in a Batch Process Command File;FIT VIEW EXTENDED< CR>- Fits the current view so that in the next step when creating a fence, all elements in view will be contained within that fence.PLACE FENCE VIEW 1- This command places a fence at the extent of View 1. There are several other options that can be used. To see the other options that you might use expand the keyin dialog and type in PLACE FENCE. Check the third column in the expanded dialog for other options you could use.FF=FENCEFILE:-This command will cause a file to be created with the same name as the original file but in a location defined by the user defined configuration variable "FENCEFILE." FENCEFILE is a new configuration variable that you will need to create before running the Batch Process.
Below is an example;FENCEFILE = C:\outpu t\$(filename(_dgnfile))POINT ABSOLUTE- This command automates the acceptance of the fence contents and executes the FF = command.
