AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Change Block Layers Based On Attribute Name Tags

Oct 11, 2011

What I am trying to do is grab the value of the owner tag (of which there are four), and use that value to determine which layer to place it on.  What it seems to be doing is hanging.

Here is what I have so far:

(setq SSBlks (ssget "x"'((0 . "*INSERT"))))
(while (/= (sslength SSBlks) 0)
(setq w(sslength SSBlks) V 0)
(setq attentity (ssname SSBlks 0))
(setq attname (entget attentity))
(setq cntr 0)
(while (< V cntr)

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Match Multiple Attribute Values From One Block To Another Block

Feb 12, 2012

I need to match few attribute values from one block to different block. I download a lisp file called; ca.lsp which can match the single attribute value. I modified it for more than one attribute value matching. It is ok but still wish to overcome two issues for batch prcess

1. picking up the blocks by selection

2. click the alternative block numbers of times to match the numbers of attribute values I needed.

How to modify this lisp I can run it by block name selections instead of picking selection which enable me to run batch process for numbers of drawing? That will be good...

Lisp & Demo file attached (Match attribute value, A, B & C to Attribute 1, 2 & 3).

Jun 17, 2013

I continue with my problems.....

I get attribute value from block and put it in a list:

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: EditTitle Block Attribute

Jul 16, 2013

I am trying to update my Title Block with a LISP routine (As the title implies).

So far, this is what i have...

(defun c:aTest (/ ss att)  
(if (setq ss (ssget "X" (list (cons 0 "INSERT")(cons 2 "TB_PARAMOUNT_ELC")       
(cons 66 1)(if (getvar "CTAB")(cons 410 (getvar "CTAB"))              
(cons 67 (- 1 (getvar "TILEMODE")))))))    
(foreach ent (mapcar 'cadr (ssnamex ss))    
(setq att (entnext ent))    


The title block, block name is static. The attribute name is static.

My ultimate goal is to copy the value of one attribute and "paste" that into the value of another attribute, and itterate this through the entire project.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Title Block Attribute

Jun 24, 2013

I can't find my notes on how I fixed it. When we insert our title block, it automatically inserts the drawing number. For one user, it doesn't work. The title block inserts, but it won't put in the drawing number. I seem to remember I need to change a setting or something to get it to work, but I can't remember what it is.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: How To Retrieve (2) Attribute Values From One Block

Aug 24, 2011

Here's my situation:

I have a block named "WIDGET-A". And in that block are (4) attribute tags whose names are:


The user will be prompted to pick the value displayed at any of the "TAG##" attributes - they will select the attribute tag they want (we don't know which one it is, we just want to assign that value of the attribute tag they clicked on to a variable called "VAR2".

Now, what we also want AutoCAD to evaluate, behind the scenes, is the value of the attribute tag named "ID" which we know always exists in the block and then assign that value to a variable called "VAR1".

Is there a way for AutoCAD to do this all from only a single user pick on top of an attribute value, in a block whose name isn't always going to be 'WIDGET-A' either.... But the block, whatever it's name, will always have the attribute tag "ID" with a value in it, and we always want to capture the value of whatever attribute tag within the block that the user clicked on.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Update Block Attribute With Variable

Mar 8, 2013

I would like to create a lisp that does the following:

Update a titleblock attribute with a $variable.

The titleblockname is variable / not static.

The attribute is not variable / Static, DW_SCALE

The titleblock is always places on the same layer, BL$4----

The (custom)-plotscale is stored in the $var "gvpsc".

I've tried to ajust the following lisp code. But I couldn't extract the part I need.

The problem is, the code checks all the layouts and updates all the titlblocks one by one.

Truely a good code. 

The only problem is, I don't have multiple layouts and I have a variable titleblock name.

Here is to code i've tried to convert to something I could use.

(defun C:UPD-DPC () (setvar "cmdecho" 0) (setq blkname "DPC-STEMPEL");(getstring "
Enter the name of block to update: ")) (setq att1 "DW_DATE");(strcase(getstring "
Enter the name of the attribute to change: "))) (setq newatt (strcase(getstring "

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Remove All Block Attribute Values

Jun 17, 2013

I need a lisp sub-function that can empty all attributes of a specified dynamic block. The idea being that the specified block contains data that changes often and in order to repopulate the block's attributes with new data to replace the old I wish to just blank out the old data first, because it's possible that the new data may not utilize as many attributes and all of the old data must be removed. 

The thing is the block I'm after is on several layouts, CTABs and they all need to be wiped clean.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Best Way To Increment A Single Attribute In A Block?

Aug 25, 2011

I have a series of blocks that I need to insert into a drawing, maybe 100-200 times and then change one of the 6 attributes by an increment of 1.

I've looked at some of the older posts and have not been able to do this. Is it possible to take the tag regerence, in this case OUTLET_REF and automatically add 1 to it when the symbol is inserted.

Can this be done using Diesel or with a bit of lisp?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Block Attribute Update Routine

Nov 3, 2011

I'm trying to find a routine that will look for ABC block and updates its NUM attributes depending on what's shown in the DESC attribute.  There are about 5 of these ABC blocks in a drawing.  Block ABC has 2 sets of attributes: DESC and NUM. 

When run, it will look at the value of tag DESC, if it contains value XXX, then it will change the NUM value to 1111.  And if DESC contains value YYY, then it will change the NUM value to 2222.

I have a simple hexagon block with one attribute, i need to be able to copy it and as i do it increases the number by one.

the Block name is note1-2006 the attribute name is NOTENUM. I have tried using some other Lisps but i cant ge them to work. Sometimes i have to put 40 of these on a sketch i hate copying and changing the attribute by one everytime. so it would be nice to copy and as i pick mutliple spots it increase number. Dont know if there is a way to ask user to keep same number or increase. This would save me so much time.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Routine Measure Command And Block Attribute Value?

Nov 28, 2011

I am trying to create a lisp that prompts you to select multiple lines, and then prompts to enter a name of a block you wish to use. With that information use the measure command to place the entered block along the selected lines with the spacing set to the value in the blocks attribute.

I have a lisp that does most of this with the exception of the extracting the value of the block size to use as the distance between blocks, the current lisp just prompts for the distance.

I have a lot of blocks with different spacing so it is hard to remember the distance.

Here is the current Lisp i use:

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Automating Changes To Title Block Date Attribute?

Jul 18, 2011

I'm using Autocrat 2004.

I have a attributed titleblock. Sometime in the future I will need to change the date attribute to another value, i.e.. 7-11 to 9-11.

I can't place a text string in the title block because this title block is used for multiple drawings and the date will be different for different sets. I can't have numerous title blocks because of the client's requirements.


Is there a way to write a script to open a drawing, look for the specific attribute, change the date value, save and close the drawing - across multiple sheets? Would a lisp routine called by the script be able to do this? Or a script file called by the original script file? CAn you even use a script file in this manner?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Batch Rename Using Attribute From Title Block

Oct 22, 2009

I am working on a large project where a 3rd Party firm has turned over 100s of drawings that we need to get into our system. The problem is that they did not name their physical files properly. We have a particular numbering system for our drawings, the engineering firm did fill in our attributed title block properly and used our numbering system correctly within the drawing. However, their physical file name follows their format. We need to have the physical file name match the information in the title block to get into our system.

Is there a way to "Batch Rename" these files by reaching into the title block and then renaming the physical file to match the attribute?

I have to be honest, I may use AutoCAD 50 to 60 hours per week, but I am no programmer! I am just the go-to person here for AutoCAD whom is stuck trying to come up with a efficient solution for the project team whose engineering firm could not follow our procedures! I was hoping some sort of batch routine could take care of this problem for us instead of us having to individually rename each physical file one by one.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Extract Field Expression of Attribute In Block

Mar 8, 2012

Is that possible to have a lisp to extract the Field Expression of a attribute in a block?Specifically, to extract the property VALUE (TextString) of this attribute.After to extract, I would like to put this text extracted in a different layout tab, in the same drawing. In this way, I will have a text linked to the attribute value between two layout tabs. So, when I have to change the attribute value, the text will be updated automatically.

I know that if I use the FIELD command to manually copy and paste this value it will work, but when I have a lot of attributes it becomes very laborious.
