(getcorner point [prompt])

Ask the user to specify the second corner of a rectangle.

This function prompts the user to pick the second corner of a rectangle. The first corner argument (point) is required; the rectangle is drawn from that point as the user drags the cursor across the screen. Very often, this point is obtained from another function, such as getpoint.

The prompt is optional; it may be used to prompt the user for the corner point. Another LISP expression cannot be used in response to this prompt.


Code Returns
(getcorner '(1.0 1.0))
[pick point]
no response
13.30 7.50 0.0
(getcorner '(2.0 1.5) "Select corner: ")
[pick point]
Select corner:
7.50 8.19 0

NOTE The base point is based on the current UCS. Any z-coordinate entered is ignored, and the current elevation is used.
