    Hi
    Like this

    t2.Transform = Application.ActiveStation.Mechanisms(1).ActiveToolFrame.Tran sform

    Where 1 is the index of the mechanism in the station, can exist more than one depending how your station looks like.
    ActiveToolFrame is the one you choosen in the elements toolbar.
    You could also use ToolFrames(x) if you want to control which toolframe to use if you have several.

    hei Per thanks alot it works in rs3.2 with this code


    Dim t1 As Target
    Dim trans As New Transform

    't1 = trans     '

    Set t1 = Application.ActiveStation.Targets.Add
    trans.Position = Application.ActiveStation.Mechanisms(2).ActiveToolFrame.Tran sform.Position
    trans.Orientation = Application.ActiveStation.Mechanisms(2).ActiveToolFrame.Tran sform.Orientation
    'Application.ActiveStation.Mechanisms(0).ActiveToolFrame.Tra nsform
    t1.Transform = trans

    If i use the same code in vsta a get errors on these names that is underlined.


    Dim
    t1 As target
    Dim trans As New Transform
    t1 = Application.ActiveStation.Targets.Add
    Logger.AddMessage(
    New LogMessage("Macro_Sample1 output window message."))
    i have improted these references.

    Hi Klaus
    The object model in RS5 is totally different from the one in RS4.
    Take a look at the vsta example supplied there is a macro for creating targets.

    You could also take a look on this topic where I have written some info regarding creating addins for RS5, may give you some hints on the object model (haven't tested them on RS5.08 but I think the object model haven't changed since then)
