    Whatever you're passing in as 'offset' is not a length between 0 and 500 meters:



    It may also be that what you're passing in is not a length, or that you're not passing in an 'offset' at all.  Screenshotting more of the call stack, or the line that the error is complaining on may be more useful for debugging.

    This probably comes from a call  to cPlane either without specifying offset, or giving it a value, which is not a length.
    You can try using something like  "offset" : 0.01 * meter
  • papawopapawo Member, Developers Posts: 206 PRO
      cPlane(context, id + i + "cPlane1", {
                            "entities" : qUnion([ planeOffset]),
                            "cplaneType" : CPlaneType.OFFSET,
                             "offset" : definition.myLength, //----------sorry my mistake , definition.myLength doesnt exist
                             "offset" : selection.myLength //<<<<<it should be this. but it doesnt work . selection.myLength is inside an array in the precondition
                     });

    if I use-----> "offset" : 0.01 * meter , it does work, but I need to get the length from the precondition

    Could you post the part of your precondition where selection is defined?

    please try putting
    println("myLength" ~ selection.myLength);
    before this call.
    May be it should be
    definition.<arrayParameterName>.[0].selection.myLength 
     ? Not sure what you meant by  "selection.myLength is inside an array in the precondition"

    it says variable selection not found

    Probably needs to be accessed via definition

     if (definition.faceToMove)
            {
                annotation { "Name" : "Select Face  ",
                            "Item name" : "Face",
                            "Driven query" : "entities",
                            "Item label template" : "#entities - ( #myLength )" }
                definition.selFace  is array;

                for (var selection in definition.selFace )
                {
                    annotation { "Name" : "Select Face To Offset",
                                "Filter" : ModifiableEntityOnly.YES && ((EntityType.FACE && ConstructionObject.NO) || (EntityType.BODY && BodyType.SOLID)),

                    selection.entities is Query;
     
                    annotation { "Name" : "Offset Length" } 
                    isLength( selection.myLength, PLANE_OFFSET_BOUNDS);    //how to access this?
