DescriptionFunction Len returns the length of the specified string value.
v :DYNARRAY OF CHAR) : INTEGER;
def vs.Len(v): return INTEGER
v DYNARRAY of CHAR Source string.
RemarksVectorworks 2018: This function will behave differently when used during dialog creation.
- When used between VS:CreateLayout, VS:CreateResizableLayout and VS:RunLayoutDialog and VS:RunLayoutDialogN it will return the length of a string in bytes count, mimicking dialog units.
- This means that the number might not be what you expect during the creation of the layout. In this case where this is a problem, you can use it outside the creation and move the value via a variable.
- This was needed to solve alignment issues with Japanese and Unicode in Vectorworks 2018.
