Parameters

Name
Name of the BlockAttribute
Caption
Text that displays at the command window during Block insertion
DefaultValue
Visible component of the BlockAttribute
PositionX
x coordinate for the insertion point of the BlockAttribute
PositionY
y coordinate for the insertion point of the BlockAttribute
PositionZ
z coordinate for the insertion point of the BlockAttribute
TextStyle
Text style of the BlockAttribute
Justification
Position and alignment of the BlockAttribute text in relation to the insertion point
Height
Text size of the BlockAttribute
Rotation
Insertion angle of the BlockAttribute
Fixed
True to make the default value of the BlockAttribute a constant value, false to make it a variable value
Hidden
True to hide the BlockAttribute in Block references, false to show it
Predefined
True to use the default values, false to request a value
Validate
True to prompt the user for verification that the BlockAttribute value is correct when inserting a Block, false to not
LockInBlock
True to lock the BlockAttribute within the Block reference, false to not
PositionBelowLastDefinition
True to align the current BlockAttribute below the previous one, false to not (see Remarks)
Multilines
True if the BlockAttribute is multiline, false if single line (see Remarks)
AttributeDefinition[out] or Return Value
IAttributeDefinition

Remarks

The difference between this method and the now obsolete ISketchManager::InsertAttributeDefinition is that this method's Multilines parameter allows you to create a multiline BlockAttribute. You cannot change a BlockAttribute from single line to multiline, or vice versa, after creation.

The PositionBelowLastDefinition parameter is ignored when the entity is created in temporary mode.
