AutoLevelLabel


One-click insertion of a block labeling absolute and relative elevation. The values in a label automatically update when the block is moved.

Description

AutoLevelLabel allows one-click insertion of blocks, labeling the absolute and relative elevation of a point and being automatically updated if moved. The first time you start an AutoLevelLabel command in a drawing you're asked to place the 0.00 relative elevation and to specify the absolute elevation for it. A LevelBlock labeled 0.00=<your absolute elevation> is inserted. The following LevelBlocks you insert will automatically generate values for relative and absolute elevation. If you copy a LevelBlock the values in the new instances of the block will be updated accordingly to their placement.

AutoLevelLabel also provides a command for editing of already inserted LevelBlocks. You just point an existing LevelBlock to be considered as 0.00 and select a set of other blocks to be associated with it. There can be multiple independent sets of associated LevelBlocks in the same drawing.

General Usage Instructions

When an AutoLevelLabel command is started you are asked to set (or confirm) the absolute elevation corresponding to the 0.00 relative elevation. Picking a point you insert in it a predefined LevelBlock labeled 0.00=<your absolute elevation>. The following LevelBlocks you insert will automatically generate values for relative and absolute elevation accordingly to their placement. The new instances of any LevelBlock you copy will be associated with the same 0.00 block as the initial LevelBlock. The elevations displayed by a moved or copied LevelBlock will be updated after regenerating the drawing.

 AutoLevelLabel also provides a command for editing of already inserted LevelBlocks - an existing LevelBlock can be associated with a new 0.00 block. Of course, it's possible for the user to change by hand the attributes of a LabelBlock too.

The detailed working of the application is given below:

AutoLevelLabel works with a predefined block named "LevelBlock" with attributes tagged "ABS_LEVEL" and "REL_LEVEL". The block could be redefined, but these names and the order of the attributes should not be changed. It has got a visibility parameter so as you can switch between displaying only relative elevation and both relative and absolute elevation in the label.

AutoLevelLabel contains 2 commands: LB (LevelBlock) and LBE (LevelBlockEdit), and an additional INFO dialog (LBInfo).

The LB command starts with a prompt that announces the current absolute elevation for the 0.00 level and asks the user to change it or to pick for the 0.00 LevelBlock. Once a point is picked a LevelBlock labeled 0.00=<your absolute elevation> is inserted in it and the command asks for another point in which it inserts a new LevelBlock labeled in association with the 0.00 LevelBlock. The LB command repeats for convenience and can be interrupted by pressing "ENTER", "SPACE" or "ESCAPE".

The LBE command asks the user to point a LevelBlock in 0.00 and after confirming the absolute elevation to select LevelBlocks to be associated with the 0.00 block. The new instances of any LevelBlock you copy will be associated with the same 0.00 block as the initial LevelBlock.

The LBInfo command starts a dialog allowing the user to customize some settings - the absolute elevation and the units' conversion factor. There are also buttons for calling this helpfile and for saving the current LevelBlock definition in LevelBlock.dwg for further use in other drawings.

LB

The LB command starts with a prompt that announces the current absolute elevation for the 0.00 level and asks the user to change it or to pick for the 0.00 LevelBlock. Once a point is picked a LevelBlock labeled 0.00=<your absolute elevation> is inserted in it and the command asks for another point in which it inserts a new LevelBlock labeled in association with the 0.00 LevelBlock. The LB command repeats for convenience and can be interrupted by pressing "ENTER", "SPACE" or "ESCAPE".

LBE

The LBE command asks the user to point a LevelBlock in 0.00 and after confirming the absolute elevation to select LevelBlocks to be associated with the 0.00 block. The new instances of any LevelBlock you copy will be associated with the same 0.00 block as the initial LevelBlock.

LBInfo

The LBInfo command starts a dialog allowing the user to customize some settings - the absolute elevation and the units' conversion factor. There are also buttons for calling this helpfile and for saving the current LevelBlock definition in LevelBlock.dwg for further use in other drawings.

Known Issues

AutoLevelLabel works with a block named "LevelBlock". You are free to redefine the block, but commands will not work properly if you rename the block or if you change the order or the tags ABS_LEVEL and REL_LEVEL of its attributes.
