    Default Turning a layer on using VBA

    I have searched thru most of the posts, but can't seem to find what I need. I have a command button on a form, and I would like to turn a layer on depending on a selected option button that is also on the form. I'm using AutoCAD 2008.

    Thanks in advance!

    Try something like this:
    Code:
    dim oLayer As AcadLayer
    dim lrName as string
    lrName = "MyLayerName"
    Set oLayer = ThisDrawing.Layers.Item(lrName)
    If Not ThisDrawing.ActiveLayer.Handle = oLayer.Handle Then
    oLayer.LayerOn = True
    Else
    Msgbox "layer is already on"
    End if
