Type of Dimension stored in dxflib

Postby wwinthan » Wed Aug 20, 2008 5:06 pm

Group codes Description
100 Subclass marker (AcDbDimension)
2 Name of the block that contains the entities that make up the
dimension picture
10 Definition point (in WCS)
DXF: X value; APP: 3D point
20, 30 DXF: Y and Z values of definition point (in WCS)
11 Middle point of dimension text (in OCS)
DXF: X value; APP: 3D point
21, 31 DXF: Y and Z values of middle point of dimension text (in OCS)
70 Dimension type.
Values 0–6 are integer values that represent the dimension type. Values
32, 64, and 128 are bit values, which are added to the integer values
(value 32 is always set in R13 and later releases).
0 = Rotated, horizontal, or vertical; 1 = Aligned;
2 = Angular; 3 = Diameter; 4 = Radius;
5 = Angular 3 point; 6 = Ordinate;
32 = Indicates that the block reference (group code 2) is referenced by
this dimension only.
64 = Ordinate type. This is a bit value (bit 7) used only with integer
value 6. If set, ordinate is X-type; if not set, ordinate is Y-type.
128 = This is a bit value (bit 8) added to the other group
70 values if the dimension text has been positioned at a user-defined location rather than at the default location

In the above, the type of dimension is stored in 70. but in dxflib, where does it get stored?
thanks
