Count dimension with text after/before

Count dimension with text after/before

Count dimension with text after/before

Sorry everyone.
I have some problems about creating the code to count all the dimension in Catia drawing, that contain specific text (text add after or before the dimensions). Please help me.

RE: Count dimension with text after/before

Here are the code I had discovered, but I want to develope it a little bit.
1. can I select all the dimension with that specify text (in this case is FIT text)
2. Does it has any method to find dimensions with 'positioned texts'

Sub CATMain()

Dim myDrawing As DrawingDocument

On Error Resume Next
Set myDrawing = CATIA.ActiveDocument
If (Err.Number <> 0) Then
MsgBox ("A CATDrawing must be active")

Exit Sub
End If
If (InStr(myDrawing.Name, ".CATDrawing")) = 0 Then
MsgBox ("The active window must be a CATDrawing")
Exit Sub
End If
On Error GoTo 0

Dim selection1 As Selection
Set selection1 = myDrawing.Selection
selection1.Search "CATDrwSearch.DrwDimension.Visibility=Shown"

For i = 1 To selection1.count
Set MyDimension = selection1.Item(i).Value
Set MyDimValue = MyDimension.GetValue
MyDimValue.GetBaultText 1, MyBefore, MyAfter, MyUpper, MyLower
Dim afr, count
afr = Right(MyAfter, 4)
If afr = " FIT" Then
count = count + 1
End If
MsgBox count

End Sub

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
