Backward Example

Using Programming Languages other than VBA

Sub Example_Backward()
   ' This example creates a text object in model space and
   ' uses the Backward property to flip the text horizontally
	Dim textObj As AcadText
	Dim textString As String
	Dim insertionPoint(0 To 2) As Double
	Dim height As Double

	' Define the new Text object
	textString = "Hello, World."
	insertionPoint(0) = 3: insertionPoint(1) = 3: insertionPoint(2) = 0
	height = 0.5

	' Create the Text object in model space
	Set textObj = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace.AddText(textString, insertionPoint, height)


	MsgBox "The Text oject is now forward"

	textObj.Backward = True
	ThisDrawing.Regen acActiveViewport

	MsgBox "The Text object is now backward"
End Sub
