  1. Hi all, this is a cutout of a dcl file with toggle boxes. How can I predefine the selection "lathe machine"? (So that this checkbox is always checked). Currently, the selection that was previously selected is always applied. With radio-buttons it works with "value=1", but not in this case. : toggle { key = "tool"; label = "lathe machine"; value = "1"; } Thanks so far.

    Dialog Box behavior

    Hello, I am working with C3D 2018. All of the dialog boxes that permit input are behaving poorly. If I highlight a field I typically do not have time to enter the data before the pulldown closes or the box stops allowing input. Another example would be if I was trying to change an alignment style, the dropdown displays but I do not have time to scroll down fast enough to select one of the options before the list collapses. the dialog boxes themselves remain on screen, just the fields that allow input are failing. Is anyone else experiencing this? Thanks, Phil
  3. We are looking for a way to revise multiple layout tabs (single .dwg file) at one time. We design our product in 2D in one .dwg file. We use the layout tabs for multiple views of the objects that are in modelspace, (each layout tab has the project titleblock on it, but each layout tab has its own set of revision blocks.) We "stack" the revision blocks in the Y direction, please see first screenshot) There are times in the project when ALL layout tabs need the same revision description. For example, Issue for Construction, P.E. comments, As Built... etc. This was previously done by i
  4. *Disclaimer* I'm not sure where this code came from, it's probably hashed together from several forum posts. I'm working on revising this layer renamer that didn't quite work. I've got the dialog box setup and working fine. I've got the layer renaming functions setup and working fine. The problem is when I try to execute the layer renaming function from the dialog box it crashes. I think it's getting stuck in a loop because the VLIDE gets stuck until I close the AutoCAD drawing and open a new one. I've simplified the code down for brevity. If any can take a look at it and giv
  5. Hello all, I've tried to get some help with this in the past and haven't been able to achieve what I'm after. I think overcomplicated it before. Can you manipulate a dialog box (proper term may be user interface?) with lisp? I have custom commands that bring up a dialog box with various options that I would like to automate some things. When the box comes up, I can use "SHIFT+TAB" to cycle to the option I want, hit enter to then select an object and hit enter one more time to bring the box back up to change various things. Can lisp do all this? Thanks again, -Nobull
  6. Hi everybody! I'm trying to create dialog box for creating new layer, I googled everything I could remember, but I can't find anything. Set newLayer = ThisDrawing.Layers.Add("NameOfNewLayer") should create new layer, but how to define color or weight or type of lines? P.S. I'm using VB6...

    Dialog Box Missing

    I was on my previous employers computer with auttocad (he says)2009 (it says 2007). I was helping him make a few tweaks. In short I made his SAVEAS dialog box dissapear. Now when hitting "saveas" it shows in the comand line- no popup dialog box. Please help me fix this error (and get me out of hot water) Thanks ahead
  8. new to the dialog boxes. Been trying a routine and failing. Can't figure out why. The routine opens the dialog, which should allow me to pick 1 out of 3 blocks to instert and to define the scale of the block, text to be inputed, and the text style to be used. The idea was planed to first define defaults for the dialog. Once the dialog is opened I could change or except the defaults. It should then insert the selected block and print the text. If the lisp file is executed a second time it should use the last values used as the defaults. So far all I can do is call up the dialog box, change my
  9. Hello All, I tried to solve a problem lisp and DCL but it is clear that I have a lot to learn. With lisp's trying to insert text in Autocad list opens (see DCL). Any help is welcome. Dialog Text.zip

    Custom Dialog Boxes

    I work for a manufacturing company. We use AutoCad to do our estimates. We take custom block and overlay them on tiff backgrounds of the architectural plans. Then we export the block info into spreadsheets to complete our takeoffs. As of now we use dynamic properties and attributes in the blocks to gather the options for the particular product we are bidding. I use many dummy look up tables to select options like color, finish ect. for the blocks. Then other data is entered into attributes. Is there a way using AutoLisp or some other method to create a dialog box that pops up when you click on
  11. Okay so two questions both relating to text in a multileader. 1) I have written a lisp that sets layer, creates a revcloud but when it gets the point at which it generates an mleader, I run into problems. Basically it draws the leader then ask me for the text in the command window. But soon as I hit space (as in between words) it finishes the command. I am hoping there is a way to pop up the normal dialog box that happens with multileaders so that the user can type in there entry hit okay then it finishes the lisp. 2) Second question, I am using a portion of a lisp from Ken Jolly tha
  12. I am currently using Autocad Map 3D 2010, which uses alot of the same commands as AutoCad 2010. Atleast that is what i have been figuring out since i cannot find any help really online with trying to learn this version,(Map 3D), so i have just been learning the regular Autocad 2010. But that is another post. I must have changed a setting that affected this and not known it, but recently when I click Open to bring up the dialog box to search for and open a document or template the dialog box does not come. Instead it says "Enter name of drawing to open :" in the command line. Does anyone kno
