Need to collect value of dynamic block property via LISP


Recommended Posts

OK Guys, I've been searching endlessly for a solution to this, and I just can't seem to get anything to work.


I'm writing a lisp that adds a line of revision text to our title block. We have about 6 different sizes of it. We use a dynamic block for the title block text that uses a lookup table to set the size.


Here's what I am trying to do... I want to write a LISP that can read the current value of the lookup table, and set an insertion point for my revision block based on the size of the title block.


The block name that has the lookup is SG_SheetBlock2013, and the name of the lookup table property is "TBlock Size".


Can anyone help out on this? Please!? :?

Here is an example of the block. Basically, the lookup table lets you pick a value from the list, and set other dynamic attributes based on what you pick from the list. For this block, say you pick the 24" x 26" size from the lookup. What it then does is sets a height parameter to 24", and a width parameter to 36". You can also use it to control visibility states.


And thanks for the link to the Lee Mac page. I can't seem to get those to work either though! Maybe I just have no idea what I'm doing! hahahaSG_SheetBlock2013.dwg
