    Answer ✓

    This can be requested using JavaScript:

    cmd = """unit_str = DS.UnitSystem.UnitString (DS.Script.id_utLENGTH); returnFromScript(unit_str)"""
    unit_str = ExtAPI.Application.ScriptByName("jscript").ExecuteCommand(cmd)
    

    For other units one can replace id_utLENGTH accordingly. Eg:

    • id_utANGLE
    • id_utVOLUME ...
