Create a rectangle with an adjustable corner, Part 2: Using a dynamic block

In a previous post, “Create a rectangle with a flexible corner,” I showed how to create a rectangle whose upper-right corner is strechable, creating a flexible rectangle that doesn’t lose its shape. In this post, I show how to do the same with a dynamic block.

Thanks to Joel, whose comment to the earlier post helped me figure this out.

    I liked very much I want to try to make it stretch from the four corners. Do you think it’s possible. It didn’t work with me from the first trial. I’ll try again

    Hi Ellen, I was at one of your shows in Vegas 2 years ago, you showed as a LSP that you had to fill in the drawing Properties, i.e. the custom bit, so you can use it for your fields.

    Himm, I don’t remember that. At Autodesk University a couple of years ago, I taught a class on Visual Styles. A couple of years before that on 3D for Newbies. Sorry.
