Program Description

This relatively simple program allows the user to continuously place elevation markers composed of a variable width polyline and single-line text object at specific points in a drawing.

The program will continuously prompt the user for a point at which to display the elevation, and proceed to create an LWPolyline marker accompanied by a single-line Text object displaying the value of the UCS Y-coordinate of the picked point.

The units and precision of the value displayed are controlled by the settings of the LUNITS and LUPREC system variables respectively.

The text height, offset and size of the marker are all dependent upon the value of the TEXTSIZE system variable.
