This routine is an alternate to “Label Entity with Break,” also from Kent Cooper. That tip inserts a text string into an entity by physically breaking the entity. This routine, in contrast, uses a wipeout to mask the entity instead of breaking it. Because this routine uses a wipeout, some system variables, such as Wipeoutframe, can affect the final results. If Pickstyle is set to 1 or 3, then you can move the text entity and the wipeout will go along for the ride since the text and wipeout are in a group.
Note that if Transparency is turned on (Transparencydisplay = 1), the wipeout may not work. For other routine details, see “Label Entity with Break,” Cadalyst CAD Tip No. 4328.
