Quick Start to Creating Dynamic Blocks

You add dynamic behavior to new or existing block definitions by adding parameters and actions to the block in the Block Editor. In the following example, a desk block is shown in the Block Editor. The block contains a linear parameter, which displays similar to a dimension and is labeled “Distance,” and a stretch action, which displays a lightning bolt and a “Stretch” label.

For a block to be dynamic, you must add at least one parameter. You then add an action and associate the action with the parameter. The types of parameters and actions you add to the block definition define how the block reference will work in a drawing. To see demonstrations of how parameters and actions are added to a block, see the New Features Workshop. Click Help New Features Workshop Produce Dynamic Blocks.
