Macro to find line by its coordinates in drawing

Macro to find line by its coordinates in drawing

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to write a macro (VBA) to find line located in an area of a drawing and change their properties.

The coordinates are the only attributes that enables me to select the needed line among the other lines in the drawing.

I have recently done a similar work with texts and I succeded.

I used the "Selection.search" command to select all texts and then:

Selection.Item(i).Value.X to access to the coordinates (same for Y).

I'am using a similar approach to select all lines.

But then, I don't find the attributes to access the coordinates of the points of the line:


Does anybody know how to manage that ?

Thank you very much for your help.


RE: Macro to find line by its coordinates in drawing

.GetOrigin myArrary
.GetCoordinates myArray

methods. One of those, I can't remember exactly.
