How do you insert this to a model?

how do i use it...

Thanks works great with AutoCAD20008

Excellent except i thought it did it automatically. You have to find and select which contours to label. But otherwise good.

Great block, thank you!

Yes, see the block 5224 - ContourAutoLabel2 (you can just edit the field in the preset attribute)

Can this block be changed to not round to one decimal place? My contours are at .25m intervals. (Map 2009)

The grey background is the text mask - it is only displayed, not printed. See also the FIELDDISPLAY variable.

Great block but I keep getting a grey rectangle behind my elevation numbers... I tried changing the color of the numbers but I still get it.

It takes the Z value from the insertion point of the dynamic block (snapped to the contour entity). You cannot easily get the name of the underlaying entity.

How does this extract the Z value. Can it be made to extract a Block name and put into leader text? (AutocadLT 2007)
Vladimir Michl (7.11.2008 11:36:50)
Unfortunately not - this block is a dynamic block and dynamic blocks were introduced in AutoCAD 2006 (Map 2006).
