Get the Selected Parts Measures' Properties for exporting


Hi There,

I'd like get by code (VB) the properties (name, value, type, parent etc) from user selected Measures in a Part Document. If the user selects the "Length" icon in the tree, the selection can be managed as Parameter (with plenty of code examples for that). But is the user selects the displayed dimension value in the part or the "MesureEdge" icon in the tree then it the code to extract the parameter values fails. Seems like the Length is a Parameter, but the Container (MeasuredEdge) can't be identified. Thanks in advance.
