Get board outline dimensions in FablinkXE (panel )

Hello all,

 

I have done my own copy boards function, simillar to array placement of boards.

The problem is, that I need to place boards with defined gap between board outlines ( not manufacturing outline - it is bigger, and it is not defined how much )

And for this, I need the board outline dimensions ( extrema coordinates is enough ).

So now, when I run my program from FablinkXE with panel design loaded, I must first run Expedtion on background, take board dimensions from it and then close it.

Not a problem, works good, but it is time consuming ( about 20 secs on our system ), so not very user friendly.

 

Is there any way, how to get the board outline dimensions (points or extrema) directly in FablinkXE/panel ?
