Custom Properties Error Help


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I'm working on a piece of code where I need the lisp to look up a custom property that's set and extract it.


The problem I am having is that we updated our templates within the last two years so this piece of code doesn't work properly with some of the older drawings we have.


I want it to assign the variable a value if it can't find it, but I don't know how to get around the automation error.


Here's my attempt but I am at a loss as to what to do.


(defun c:test (/ acadobject acaddocument dprops pp pp#)
(setq acadObject (vlax-get-Acad-Object))
 (setq acadDocument (vla-get-Activedocument acadObject))
 (setq dProps (vlax-get-property acadDocument 'Summaryinfo))
 (vla-getcustombyindex dprops 72 'PP 'PP#)
   (if (= PP# nil)
   (setq PP# "PLXX-X-XX-")
   );;end if
);;end defun


Here's the error I get.


Error: Automation Error. Out of range


FYI: The name of the custom property is Plot Plan


Thanks in advance!

The error message you are receiving would seem to indicate that the index argument that you have supplied to the method is too high for the number of custom properties defined in your drawing; however, since you already know the property name, you could use the ActiveX getcustombykey method instead.
