vba get all objects properties


Recommended Posts


I have a huge file with numerous objects I need to work on.

I would like to have the list of all objects and as much information I can get (layer, bounding box, object type etc.)

I would like to generate this list in VBA.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Can you explain more if you have 100 objects you have 100 items of information.


What do you plan to do with it ? 


The actual answer to your original question is the easy part.

I need to identify various bodies that I cannot see in the GUI. The screen is very busy and I need to extract some objects and delete unnecessary ones, but it is too risky to do it with the GUI. I would like to do it with a script so I can have 100% control on what I am doing.

Still need more info like


delete arcs that are green and on layer xxxx.

freeze lines that are blue lT=dashed 


and so on.


You can actually type on the command line  both of the actions 1 line per action. Once you know the syntax for ssget, dont need fancy coding,  yes you could do a dcl/form picking the combos.

well this is the point: I do not know what is in the dwg. I need to know


you mean type at command line this?


"delete arcs that are green and on layer xxxx."


"freeze lines that are blue lT=dashed"


I need to create  a list of EVERYTHING that is in the drawing so I can handle it (move it to a 'dumpster layer", delete etc)
