How can I display curve length whilst scaling or altering curve?

Hi,
V5
I need to see the curve length in real time as I either drag a control point or use scale2D or scale1D.
I have used the curve length dimension with arrow tip ( _DimCurveLength ), but it only reveals new length after I stop.

What is there that will do what I need ?

Also is there a way of knowing what the scale factor is to attain a curve of a specific length ?

or is just scale a bit until the number arrives ?

for V5

Cheers

Steve

Hi Steve, DimCurveLength in V7, possibly 6, I don’t think in 5.

Hi,

I am using DimCurveLength as it exists in V5, but as I say, its value is static whilst I am altering the curve with scaing, so its many stabs at it until I get the length I need.

Are you saying the functionality is improved in V7 with it changing as I alter line ?

I open the file in V7, and use scale2D and the number doesnt change either.

If I nudge the end point it changes both in V5 and V7.

but scaling sees no live update in V5 or V7.

How is it in V8 ?

Cheers

Steve
