Description

Procedure FMarker returns the active marker style parameters.

A complete listing of marker styles can be found in the Appendix.

PROCEDURE FMarker(
VAR style  :INTEGER;
VAR size  :REAL;
VAR ang  :INTEGER);
def vs.FMarker():
    return (style, size, ang)

Parameters

style INTEGER Returns marker style.
size REAL Returns marker size in inches measured in page space.
ang INTEGER Returns marker angle (in degrees).

Remarks

OBSOLETE for VW 2008: Use GetDefaultBeginningMarker and/or GetDefaultEndMarker instead.

Style is an 8 bit quantity interpreted as follows:

  • Bit 0 indicates the visibility of a marker at the start of the line.
  • Bit 1 indicates the visibility of a marker at the end of the line.
  • Bits 2 - 7 indicate the index of the marker style to be used.

Size is in page-inches. Legal values are 0.0 to 2.0.

Angle is in degrees.

The parameter Style is currently returning 0-6, 0 for solid arrow, 1 for empty arrow, etc. and not the 8 bit quantity as described above.

Actually, the Style is returning:

  • 0 for solid arrow,
  • 4 for empty arrow*
  • 8 for open arrow
  • 12 for dot, etc.

Example

VectorScript

PROCEDURE Example;
VAR
style :INTEGER;
size  :REAL;
ang   :INTEGER;
BEGIN
FMarker(style, size, ang);
Message(style, ' ', size, ' ', ang);
END;
RUN(Example);

Python

def Example():
	style, size, ang = vs.FMarker()
	vs.Message(style, ' ', size, ' ', ang)
Example()

Version

FMarker is obsolete as of VectorWorks 13.0

Availability: from MiniCAD 6.0
