    Hi,
    I think your thread should be moved in the autolisp's discussion by the moderator.
    You must explain more clearly what are you trying to achieve, do you want to dimension a polyline by picking it?
    Try with simplier explanations, using autocad terms. Its hard to understand what exactly is your everyday's task.

    Well to answer partially, I think theres a lisp that dimensions at incremented distance of a polyline (if your rebar is a polyline).
    The "number, bar notation and bar diameter and position" might be easier to achieve by creating a dynamic block,
    since with lisp it would expect to read that information from somewhere or you should manually input it while running the routine.

    Providing a sample drawing with "before and after" would make the job easier for the coders.
    But my opinion is that it would be easier to achieve the task if you create a dynamic block with attributes and fields, and populate the data.

    From lisp you could expect stuff like auto-dimensioning and auto-numbering, but it could not populate the notation and diameter (unless it reads a circle's diameter for example).
    Try to imagine yourself as a code-writer, what information would you need to get first so you would know how the code will auto-populate the rebars.

    Going to second Grrr here. I feel that a dynamic block would be the better solution. If you provide a sample drawing I might take a crack at it.

    Thanks.
