Add Leader to 2d Components

Add Leader to 2d Components

Add Leader to 2d Components

Hello everyone, I need your help:
Is it possible to automate (with a CATIA macro) the insertion of the "Add Leader", in an object (detail component), and associate it with a dimension? The objective is to link the instantiated 2d component with the reference dimension.
I have attached images of the problem.

Thank you all for your help!

RE: Add Leader to 2d Components

I don't believe CATIA has this functionality. It sounds looks like you are trying to create a custom text frame; maybe look into creating this in your drafting standard? You could fake it by creating an empty text box behind the component, but that is cheesy.

Here's the code I use to remove leaders from balloons


Dim MyLeaders
    Set MyLeaders = SelectedBalloon.Leaders
    On Error Resume Next
    MyLeaders.Remove (1)
    'MsgBox Err.Number

End Sub
