Using VB.Net, Redefine a block

Recommended Posts


Wondering if anyone has code, or know of an example I can start from, to redefine a block. I use the words "redefine", because that is what AutoCAD asks me when I try to reinsert the same block that already exists in the drawing. That is the only way I know how to update the block without deleting it, purging it, then reinserting it.



Open drawing

Insert Block

Save Drawing

Close Drawing

Open Drawing that was used as the Block

Change it

Save it, close

Reopen first drawing

Block needs to be updated

Reinsert block using the browse button

Message pops up asking to redefine block

Click Yes

Block is now updated


Wanting to code this if possible.
