How to get the height of each column segment

Yeojin
Contributor

I want to create a label that shows the cross-section information of a multi segment column and each segments height.

 

I was able to get the width/height of the cross-section using the COLU_SEGMENT_INFO parameter, but not the height of the segments.

 

Using the COLU_HEIGHT parameter, I can only get the overall height of the column,
How can I get the height of each segment?

 

If anyone knows, please let me know.

Did you try COLU_SEGMENT_INFO with :

  • .segments[n].crossSection.startHeight

  • .segments[n].crossSection.endHeight

I tried it but it showed column's crosssection size only. 

 

COLU_SEGMENT_INFO.segments[n].crosssection.startWidth 

COLU_SEGMENT_INFO.segments[n].crosssection.startHeight

COLU_SEGMENT_INFO.segments[n].crosssection.endWidth 

COLU_SEGMENT_INFO.segments[n].crosssection.endHeight

Hi,

 

It is COLU_HEIGHT, but you can get the information for one segment only or the whole column, based on whether the label points to a segment or the whole column.
