Section / Elevation Marker - Sheet Layout ID Text Manipulation

scottjm
Advisor

Hi All,

 

I am trying to make some edits to a Section and Elevation marker to remove a portion of the Layout Sheet ID from being displayed from the section marker.

 

I'm using the following code:

 

 

layoutid = "<MARKERSHEETNUMBER_R>"+AC_DrawingGUID
trim = STRSUB(layoutid,18,STRLEN(layoutid))
TEXT2 5,0, trim 

 

 

But instead of trimming the sheet name from  NSPS-FTA-D-ZZ-DR-A-3001 to A-3001 I'm getting ER_R><NULLGUID><NULLGUID><6A3C429-0F99-4FB0-B356-1C8AF7E2447A>

 

I'm guessing the script is not computing what the sheet name actually is until it tries to draw it on the sheet and instead i'm just performing the STRSUB on the autotext instead.

 

Is there any way to achieve what I'm trying to do?

 

Thanks,

Scott

Hi,

 

Autotexts' content are not visible in GDL, they can't be modified.

Thanks Peter.  That was what I feared.
