Parameters

Prompt
Text of prompt
ShowRubberLine

True to display a rubber line from the origin, or from the BasePointX, BasePointY, and BasePointZ coordinates, to the location of the cursor; false to not display the rubber line

BasePointX
x coordinate for the point indicating where to start the rubber line (see Remarks)
BasePointY
y coordinate for the point indicating where to start the rubber line (see Remarks)
BasePointZ
z coordinate for the point indicating where to start the rubber line (see Remarks)
X[out]
x coordinate for a point
Y[out]
y coordinate for a point
Z[out]
z coordinate for a point
Plane
Projection plane cursor coordinates
Result[out] or Return Value
True if the prompt is displayed in the command window, false if not

Example

Remarks

ShowRubberLine must be set to true for the values specified for BasePointX, BasePointY, or BasePointZ to have an effect. The rubber line extends to the location of the cursor in the drawing.
