Description

Replaces GetResourceString -- load a string from VWR file

More information about VWR files can be found here Vectorworks VWR Resources.

PROCEDURE GetVWRString(
VAR outputString  :STRING;
resIdentifier  :STRING;
stringIdentifier  :STRING);
def vs.GetVWRString(resIdentifier, stringIdentifier):
    return outputString

Parameters

outputString STRING result value
resIdentifier STRING VWR identifier and path to vwstrings file
stringIdentifier STRING key in vwstrings file

Remarks

(Orso, 2016.08.23):

GetVWRString is supported by VW 2014, but due to a bug not timely reported, you can’t use it in a subroutine to return the string value. Only directly. This is my workaround (from VW 17/2012):

{ Orso ************************************************ }
{ fix for GetVWRString failing on VW 2014: strings don't set! }
FUNCTION D_GetVWRStr(resID, resNr: INTEGER): STRING;
BEGIN
	GetResourceString(D_GetVWRStr, resID, resNr); 
	{ this silently fails on later versions }
		
	{$IF ver > 19}
	GetVWRString(D_GetVWRStr, Concat(resID), Concat(resNr));
	{$ENDIF}
END;

Example

vwr = 'EnergyAnalysis/Strings/FormatDef_ThermalBridge.vwstrings'
formatName = vs.GetVWRString(vwr, 'FormatName' )
vs.AlrtDialog( formatName )
