View Full Version : Bind Problem...
2nd Jul 2003, 02:33 am
hey there lads.
i'm having problems with binding the xref drawings.
what i know is that i cannot bind a dwg if it contains *102 etc...
and i'm in the process of finding them in the xref and getting rid of them...
what im doing now is deleting blocks and objects to find to find the not so obvious blocks, and its very time consuming... is there a better way to find them???
also i'm wondering if you guys know what other bugs that might stop me from binding the xref dwgs...
thanks in advance.

here something real funny..
i delete all object and line on the dwg, and it still wont let me bind...??? :shock:
i think i know what i have to do...

Sounds as though you may have some unreferenced blocks in your drawing. Try using the PURGE command to get rid of them.

i did that, i delete all objects in the drawing, and purged all....
the drawing is EMPTY, and i mean EMPTY...
and i still can't bind it..
its really really strange....
maybe is one of the autoCAD gremlin playing around again..... :mrgreen:
so you guys dont know if there is a way to find/list unreferenced blocks...
its really annoying...

Theres a xref log file that you can view when the XREFCTL is set to 1.Have a look in the help file.This maybe be of some use,Ive never used it myself though.Theres other options in there too called demand loading options and locking of xrefs that you might want to look at.

thanks for that smurf.
trying it out as we speak...
i had a look at demand loading a while back...
as far as im aware, its good when there are multiple users accessing the same refernece file but dont seem to affect the binding...
that brings me to another question, i can never find anything i want from teh help file, it seems that i can never ask the right question :mrgreen:

I know exactly what you mean,you look at the help file and think mmmm I should now know whats going going on but alot of the time end being more confused!I extracted this from another forum Im a memeber off and modified it slightly,so thanks Hendie from Appinat:
I've seen this topic cropping up a few times recently and thought this may be of interest.
It's a lot easier than some people think to modify the Acad help file to include your own stuff.
The following is from the Acad Help file under Help Contents tab, adding HTML files
If you want easy access to remote Web sites or if you want to use HTML as documentation for custom applications or company standards, you can set up AutoCAD to have easy access to this information. The following sections present methods that AutoCAD provides for accessing these files.
Adding HTML Files to the Contents Tab
You can add your own HTML files, or links to Web pages on the Internet to the Contents tab of the AutoCAD Help system. The include.cnt file defines additional entries that display on the Contents tab. For more information about CNT files, see "Windows Help System Components."
For example, if you want to be able to easily access your HTML documentation, "stuff1.htm", "stuff2.htm", and "stuff3.htm", in addition to a few important Web sites, create the "MOREHELP.cnt" file with the following contents using a standard text editor like NOTEPAD:
1 My Own Help Stuff
2 My Help Files
3 Stuff 1=!EF("stuff1.htm","",4)
3 Stuff 2=!EF("stuff2.htm","",4)
3 Stuff 3=!EF("stuff3.htm","",4)
3 CADTutor Forums=!EF("http://www./cadtutor.net/forum/","",4)
Then (create and) add the following line to the "INCLUDE.cnt" file:
Note: remember to include a carriage return <enter> after the last line in each of these two files. And of course, to make sure that the files are in your Acad support path !
Now, Delete the ACAD.GID file. If this file is not deleted, your additions to the Contents tab may not be displayed. The next time you run the acad.hlp file (from File Manager or Explorer) or choose AutoCAD Help Topics from the AutoCAD Help menu, the Help file recompiles and your new entries are displayed after the existing entries. ... and you can get to CADTutor directly from the Acad help file !

I think I can guess what is the slightly modification you maded.
Good idea to provide your own help files to applications. Can somebody show me the right direction to create windows help files?
