Trying to automate drawing view scale in SCALE field on a draft titleblock.
Able to get ScaleFactor just fine, but it comes in as a decimal.
Per ANSI standards, scale should be shown as a ratio ( ie. .5 as 1:2 ).
Can't find it anywhere, but I know it is there since SE displays it in the Properties > General area for the drawing view.

for viewscales less than 1 just calculate 1/viewscale to get the value of the denominator you wish to have.
viewscale 0.5 -> 1/0.5=2 => Scale 1:2
viewscale 0.1 -> 1/0.1=10 => Scale 1:10

Thank you Wolfgang. I thought about doing it the long way, but I just assumed it already existed somewhere to just pull in. Guess I'll throw a little extra code in to format the display.
