Change "Reference Name" of attached IMAGE xref .tiff
Russelltimk posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHEADACHE! I am trying to write a LISP that does the following: -Open drawing -Saveas as NEW drawing based on certain criteria from DCL menu -Deletes old drawing -*THEN, if drawing contain attached IMAGE FILE (.tiff in my case)... Rename image file and repath image file based on the new file name I have gotten it to do all of this, except I can not figure out how to change the "reference name" of the attached image file (.tiff) Is this read-only data? I can manualy change it under xref manager, so there should be a way to do it via code... The closest I have gotten: ;;after renaming and repath image file... (SETQ NAME2 (substr (getvar "dwgname") 1 (- (strlen (getvar "dwgname")) 4))) (setq item (vlax-ename->vla-object (entlast)));convert to vl object (setq check (vlax-property-available-p item "Name" T));check if the entity can be updated ;if it can (if check ;change value to match (vlax-put-property item 'Name NAME2)) 'Name seems to be valid w/ xref'd blocks but not xref'd/attached image files.. Any help is greatly apprecated! Thanks
