Red face Drawing attributes

I need to query an attribute I created in the DRAWING_2D class. Then use the string returned to populate a text reference. I've gotten through creating the text reference. I need help with polling the attribute value so I can use it in an if statement. I have very little experience with customization. Others in my organization have had success getting an attribute from a 3d view using (oli::sd-inq-item-attribute). Is there a way to use this command or a different command that would accomplish my goal.

I'm new to this, so feel free to call me out if I'm way off base.

Re: Drawing attributes

Are you talking about passing an attribute from DrawingManager to Drafting, then doing something with that attribute inside of Drafting?

Re: Drawing attributes

Ultimately, the plan is to use a Drawing attribute from ModelManager to populate a text reference in Annotation. I'm not sure if Annotation is the same as Drafting. The thing I need to figure out is how to query a Drawing attribute (attribute in DRAWING_2D class).

Re: Drawing attributes

If the attribute is the base point of the block, try this: -attedit.
Select the block,click enter, select the attribute and follow the instructions untill you see ‘Position’. At this point you can drag the attribute where ever you want..
Goog luck,
