insert block with tags (attributes)

How to insert a block and its attributes?

I did the following command


(command "insert" (strcat BLOCKNAME) pause "" "" pause)


More when I run the command and tags only appear

explode if I do, is there any way to insert the block

without having to blow to see the tags?

This is unclear. Did you resolve your problem? TAGS do not normally show up for the user when INSERTing, but rather the prompts. However, they do show up under Properties and in the Enhanced Attribute Editor.

Assuming I have understood the issue, the easiest solution using your existing code would be to set ATTREQ to 1 and populate the attributes directly through the -INSERT command, e.g.:


(setq att (getvar 'attreq))
(setvar 'attreq 1)
(command "_.-insert" blockname "_S" 1.0 "\\" "\\")
(while (= 1 (logand 1 (getvar 'cmdactive))) (command "Attribute Value"))
(setvar 'attreq att)

Alternatively, you can use any of these functions to modify the attributes values of the block reference following insertion.
