Getting a list of existing Dictionaries (collection)

Recommended Posts

Hi there


Does anyone know how to get the Name of a existing Dictionary? and secondly, how to print the values stored in them?


(defun c:dicttest (/ dictionaries DictName dictList)

  (setq dictionaries (vla-get-Dictionaries (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object))))
  (setq dictList '())

    '(lambda (theDict)
       (setq DictName (vlax-get-property theDict 'Name))

          (setq dictList (cons DictName dictList))
  )					;vlax-map-collection
(foreach itm dictList (princ itm))
)					;defun


Thanks for the comments.

(mapcar 'print (dictsearch (NAMEDOBJDICT) "ACAD_LAYOUT"))

And maybe this:

(foreach x (entget (namedobjdict))
  (if (= 3 (car x))
    (print (cdr x))

And this:

(defun c:dicttest (/ l)
  (vlax-for d (vla-get-dictionaries (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))
    (if	(vlax-property-available-p d 'name)
      (setq l (cons (list (vla-get-name d) d) l))
  (mapcar 'print l)
