How to createFeature "Text"

I want to know how to create “Text” feature with Python Script?

Here is snippet on how to make Text feature and define its Text property.

from vcScript import *

app = getApplication()
comp = getComponent()
node = comp
text_feat = node.getFeature("Example")
if not text_feat:
  text_feat = node.RootFeature.createFeature(VC_TEXT, "Example")

text_feat.Text = "\"Howdy, partner! 2+2=4\""
text_feat.Size = 100.0

Notice that I had to use a string quote with escape characters to pass a string since Text is expecting an expression given in the form of a string.

Text feature is of type vcFeature, and it has these properties:

  • Name
  • Visible
  • Material
  • Text
  • Size
  • IsFloating
  • IsReadOnly

OK,thank you very much!

The reason I asked this question was because that the “VC_TEXT” constant was not found in the Python API.
