Finding template of new drawing


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Is it possible to find out which template file used in new opened drawing via visual lisp?


Assume someone issues NEW command and selects a .DWT file as template. Now after ending NEW process, how to find out what is the fullname (path and name) of template file?


I appreciate any help

Hi Ahankhah, try

(vl-registry-read (strcat "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\" (vlax-product-key) "\\FixedProfile\\General") "LastTemplate")


Hope that helps

thank you very much.


Meanwhile I found three other ways to obtain the mentioned registry container:

(getenv "General\\LastTemplate")

(getenv "LastTemplate")

(vla-get-TemplateDWGPath (vla-get-Files (vla-get-Preferences (vlax-get-acad-object))))

I appreciate your

great help.:D
