    Cool Automatic Tagging of Doors upon Insertion

    Check out my latest article in AUGI Hotnews for the background on automatic door tagging. Want to get the code and see the routine in action? Visit my blog:

    P.S. I've also attached the vba routine to this thread.

    Question Re: Automatic Tagging of Doors upon Insertion

    Can the tag type be changed?
    Rather than a bubble, to text or mtext?

    sure it can...how comfortable with VBA are you?

    Have you already defined an mvblock to show as text only?

    Talking Re: Automatic Tagging of Doors upon Insertion

    The following instructions are found in the article on my blog, .

    To run it, simply drag it onto your ADT session window or launch it using vbarun or vbaman. Be sure to run the macro GoGoDoorTagger first, then simply proceed to add doors in any manner you choose. Each door will get a door tag upon completion of the door insertion command, however you choose to do it!

    1. Drag the dvb file from windows explorer onto your ADT 2006 main window. This will load the macro and initialize the VBA environment for you.
    2. At the command line type, "VBARUN" and hit the enter key.
    3. In the list provided choose the "GoGoDoorTagger" macro and hit the "Run" button.
    4. Return to inserting doors, when you finish inserting them, besure to hit enter to complete the insertion command. If you hit the "Esc" button, the routine will not fire the autotagging event.
    Hope that helps!

    I downloaded the vba routine for the automatic tagging of the doors... it looks like a very cool program. I'm just getting an error and wanted to see if you had an idea why... Thanks,
    Jeff
