Print SysEx$(x) value on DCad
« on: September 07, 2017, 05:11:09 AM »
Hello guys,
I would like to know if there is a way to print SysEx$(x) value on designcad.
I explain, in my jobs, my boss tell me to create a macro that print the model of the changing room wich is stored in a SysEx$(1) value.

Is there a macro can print it into designcad or by a little windows on left corner who can not close

Or is there a way to do this on .net language

So if someone here can help me with that...
Thank you

In BasicCAD,
  Message SysEx$(1)
will pop up a messagebox window showing the contents of that string.

You could also use the Window statement to open a text window, and use the Print statement to print the value of SysEx$(1).

From .NET, you can retrieve the value using Document.GetSysStr(1). The below example snipet is for VB6 -- the .NET equivalent would be quite similar:

' Assumes DcDoc is a valid DesignCAD.Document object
Dim SysStr as String
Dim i As Integer
For i = 1 to 10
  SysStr = DcDoc.GetSysStr(i)
  MsgBox "The string in Sys$(" & i & ") is: " & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & SysStr
Next i
