Labelling Fill to Read Surface Index

JP1
Contributor

Hi everyone,

First of all, big thank you for reading this and helping others in the field.

 

I am trying to make a label to return information of a fill.

When fill is set to building material FILL_BMAT successfully returns the assigned building material index.

However when fill is set to surface I am having trouble finding the right script to return the assigned surface index.

 

Can someone help me with this?

Cheers,

James

Hi,

 

it is available only as an autotext, not a GDL global variable.

With GDL questions you will get quicker replies in the developer forum.

@Peter Baksa thanks for your response.

I was able to use the Autotext GUID to display the full name of the surface assigned to a fill.

 

However I have another issue. I have named the surfaces with code and description ie. "[CONC01] Precast Concrete" and used STRSUB to display only the code inside the brackets. It appears this is not possible with Autotext GUID.

 

Is there a way around this?
