Summary

Returns all baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects whose Rotation property complies with the Query.

Syntax

Rotation : Number

The number returned specifies the Rotation in units of degrees.

Example Usage

Rotation = 30.0
Returns all baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have a Rotation property which is 30.0 degrees.

Rotation > 60.0
Returns all baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have a Rotation property which is greater than 60.0 degrees.

Rotation Between 30.0 And 150.0
Returns all baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have a Rotation property which is greater than, or equal to, 30.0 degrees and less than, or equal to, 150.0 degrees.

Rotation <= 45.0
Returns all baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have a Rotation property which is less than, or equal to, 45.0 degrees.

Tips

  1. The Rotation property is only defined for baseline dimension, center dimension, component, datum dimension, design view, drill table, fill, layer stack table, linear diameter dimension, linear dimension, OLE object, pad, and text string (comment, designator, free) objects.
