Dynamic Block Help
adrath posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHi! I'm working for a civil engineering firm, with about a year's worth of real-world CADD experience. I'm familiar with the block editor and with creating and using dynamic blocks, but I'm envisioning a block to help us set up our plan and profile sheets and I'm not quite sure how to go about creating it. This block would be made up entirely of text attributes and it would be built to line up with the profile grid. Horizontally, there would be stations and vertically there would be elevations at preset intervals. I'm wondering if there's a way to dynamically link these attributes so that when the block is inserted, you would just have type in the beginning station (say, 1+00) and the beginning elevation (say 885) and it would fill in the rest for you. I know this could be done with a LISP routine, but I would rather have a block that could just be inserted into each sheet as necessary. Is this at all possible? Does anyone have experience creating something similar to this?
