Change colors viewport automatically after using lisp

Recommended Posts

Sandervp

Hello everybody!

 

I have a lisp file which creates 2 new commands. If I use tne first command, all the viewports in my drawing are locked. If I use the other command, they are all unlocked again.

 

If I use these commands, also the colors of these viewports are changing. If I lock them, they become green. If I unlock the viewports, they become red. The colors are only changing after I use these created commands.

 

If I want to change something and I need to unlock a (locked=green colored) viewport manually at the properties. The color of this viewport doesn't change into red.

 

Is there a way to change this lisp, so the color of a viewport is also changing after I lock or unlock him manually?

 

This is the lisp:

Is it also possible, after I opened a drawing, every viewport is locked (and green) already?

In other words, the command "VPL" is already used before I can change the drawing?

 

Thank you all for your replies!

the concept is interesting .....

Is it possible to colour code just the selected viewports ????

 

i.e. there could be some red and some green viewports (unlocked and locked)

you may wish to unlock just one viewport and let the rest be locked ???

 

 

thanks

Hello Hsanon,

 

 

That's exactly what I want.

 

 

If I use my command "VPL", every viewport becomes green and are locked.

If I unlock one viewport instead of all the viewports, the color of this viewport is still green.

 

 

I want every unlocked viewport visible in a red color. So I can see in the blink of an eye which are locked or unlocked.

You could probably do it using a reactor. I'm not well versed in them, but I'm pretty sure it's possible.

I didn't work with a reactor since I am using AutoCad. I do not know what it is or how they work...
