Move Objects Along a Vector

You can move all drawing objects and attribute reference objects along a specified vector.

To move an object, use the Move method provided for that object. This method requires two coordinates as input. These coordinates define a displacement vector indicating how far the given object is to be moved and in what direction.

Move a circle along a vector

This example creates a circle and then moves that circle two units along the X axis.

Sub Ch4_MoveCircle()
	' Create the circle
	Dim circleObj As AcadCircle
	Dim center(0 To 2) As Double
	Dim radius As Double
	center(0) = 2#: center(1) = 2#: center(2) = 0#
	radius = 0.5
	Set circleObj = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace. _
					AddCircle(center, radius)

	' Define the points that make up the move vector.
	' The move vector will move the circle 2 units
	' along the x axis.
	Dim point1(0 To 2) As Double
	Dim point2(0 To 2) As Double
	point1(0) = 0: point1(1) = 0: point1(2) = 0
	point2(0) = 2: point2(1) = 0: point2(2) = 0

	' Move the circle
	circleObj.Move point1, point2
End Sub
