Parent page: Schematic Query Functions - Membership Checks


For numeric properties of objects (e.g. length, width, radius, etc), this keyword is used to convert the current value - measured in the default workspace units - into meters, which is then tested against the value entered in the expression.

You will need to target a specific object first, within the same Query expression, before using this keyword to effectively convert the specified property's value to meters.


AsMetres(Keyword : Number) : Number

Example Usage

Returns all port objects that have a Width property which is greater than, or equal to, 0.01m, and less than, or equal to, 0.02m.
