  1. how can I change “GETPOINT” z-axis value? I need always z-axis value “0”. Because when I am taking with getpoint, one line distance if the line has z axis that also it will come to that length. Am drafting 2d I don’t want 3d. so when I will get the quantity it's coming wrong (defun c:test() (vl-load-com) (setq acadobj (vlax-get-acad-object) doc (vla-get-activedocument acadobj)) (setq pt1 (vla-getpoint (vla-get-utility doc) nil "\nPick 1st point for length") pt1v (vlax-variant-value pt1) pt1zv (vlax-safearray-get-element pt1v 2)) (vlax-safearray-put-element pt1v 2 100.00) (setq new-zvalue (vlax-safearray-get-element pt1v 2)) (setq pt2 (vla-getpoint (vla-get-utility doc) nil "\nPick 1st point for length") pt2v (vlax-variant-value pt2) pt2zv (vlax-safearray-get-element pt2v 2)) (vlax-safearray-put-element pt2v 2 100.00) (setq new-zvalue (vlax-safearray-get-element pt2v 2)) (entmake (list (cons 0 "line")(cons 8 "01-identity")(cons 10 pt1)(cons 11 pt2))))
  2. I keep getting an error when I use getpoint. When I look at SPT or EPT it's nil (defun c:STUD15 (/ SPT EPT Wallth Ceilinghg) (setq SPT (getpoint "\nPick start of wall.....")) (setq EPT (getpoint "\nPick end of wall....."));at this point I get...error: bad argument type: 2D/3D point: nil (setq Wallth (distance spt ept));length of wall (setq Ceilinghgt 96.0) (setq UnflrBeamhgt (+ Ceilinghgt 0.5)); Can someone explain what I am doing wrong. Thanks
  3. I have this code: (setq PT1 (getpoint)) (setq PT2 (getpoint PT1)) (command "LINE" PT1 PT2) (command) (setq obj1 (entget (entlast))) (setq ent (car (nentsel "\nSelect Entity: \n"))) (cond ((/= ent nil) (setq obj2 (entget ent)) (command "chamfer" obj ent) ) ((= ent nil) (setq PT3 (getpoint ent)) (command "LINE" PT2 PT3) ) ) ) Its supposed to be able to draw a line when if there is no entity it draws the line up till that point where I tried to select the entity. However when I execute this code, it will state that I have an inappropriate data type. How should I modify the code to be able to draw the line from the last point to the point of which I tried to select an entity if an entity doesn't exist at that particular point?
  4. Say this is my code: (defun c:test() (setq list(getpoint "\nChoose point here") ) When you click on your autocad drawing i know that it stores the coordinates in a x,y,z format in a list.. How can i extract those numbers?
  5. I'm running AutoCad Architecture 2013 on Win7 64bit. Installed VBA enabler for Acad2013 64bit version. When start the simple code below: Sub Example_GetPoint() Dim retPnt As Variant retPnt = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(, "Enter a point: ") ... ... ... ... End Sub It hangs up at "GetPoint". I can't switch to the AutoCAD window to select anything. The only way to get control back is to go to taskbar, right-click the AutoCAD icon and try to close it, then click cancel, I will get control back in VBA Editor. The same thing happens with "SelectOnSc​reen". But if I run this macro from Autocad directly, everything is fine. Does anyone have same experience or any advice? Thanks a lot.
  6. Hi everybody, First thing I want to apologize if something that I wrote sounds strange. Im spanish and my english is not as good as it should be=P. Im learling little by little autolisp things, mostly strugling through examples, codes, etc... many of them from this forum so I thank you a lot ^_^. At this moment I'm developing a routine that breaks/trims walls in order to insert doors or windows, and, after looking for it a few days, I would like to know if there's a way to use a number that users input on the command line (in a getpoint) without getting an error.,... wich is that happends everytime =/. ;; HOLE-O-MaTIC 2000 ;; by Arturo Blanco Ureña. 2013 ;; Breaks "walls" in order to insert windows or doors ;; Based initialy on code from Pavel Chour http://klobouk.fsv.cvut.cz/~chour/Lisp/Chapter%206.htm (defun error1 (errmsg) (command "_undo" "_end") (setvar "CMDECHO" 1) (setvar "OSMODE" osmodevar) (setq *error* temperr) (prompt "\nAchtung!!!

If a point is entered, then continue normally. Im a bit shy and its the first time i post a code. I have used several pieces of code from others to arrange the error handling/undo and its originally based on one tutorial from Pavel Chour, so I dont know if its right that I give permission or not to use it, or even its worth it (the trim still fails and i dont really get why ) but If anyone want to use it feel free. Any tips critics and opinions are welcome also
  7. In this lisp I'm trying to replace 4 blocks that pretty much do the same thing. I want the user to Click the point they want to use for the center of the text and the have the code calculate a certain distance, say 3.5 below on the Y axis for the next line of text. ;INSERT STREET NAME & R.O.W. (DEFUN C:STRN () (SETQ CL (GETVAR "CLAYER")) (command ".osnap" "NONE") (setq DS (getvar 'dimscale)) (SETQ SNTW (* DS 3)) (SETQ RWTW (* DS 1.5)) (SETQ SHS (* DS 0.13)) (setq pt1 (getpoint "\nPick insertion point for Street Name : ")) (setq sn (getstring t "\nType the Street Name: ")) (setq sr (getstring t "\nType the Right Of Way Enter VW for Variable Width or P for Public: ")) (SETQ SRW (STRCAT SR "' R.O.W."))

  8. Hello, I'm building a lisp to add new text based on a standard distance givven by the user. The lisp is: (defun c:myFunction() (setq point (getpoint "Click on start point :")) (setq qtd (getint "\nQuantity of blocks :")) (setq dist (getint "\nDistance :")) (setq x 0 y 0 q 0) (setq pp point) (setq x (car pp)) (while (< q qtd) (setq Text (getstring "Text :")) (command "text" pp "2" "0" Text ) (setq x (+ pp dist)) (setq q (+ q 1)) ) ) But when it asks the Text to be entered, I type it but the following error shows up. error: bad argument type (+ PP DIST) (SETQ X (+ PP DIST)) I think its the type of dist and pp, because one is getint and other is getpoint.
