AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Add New / Blank Button To Custom Tool Bar

Apr 17, 2012

AutoCAD 2012

When I am in the CUI editor and I right click on a button in a custom tool bar, it gives me the option to "duplicate" or "copy".

But when I go to change the properties of the new button, it changes both the original and the new button upon "apply".

Can I just add a new/blank button? I've tried dragging a new command from the list at the lower left corner but it does the same thing. :?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Tool Button Image Missing?

Jul 13, 2011

I added a couple of standard Autocad MAP tabs to a custom  panel and in my custom workspace some of the button images don't show up. If I go to the Planning & Analysis workspace, the images are visible, but in the custom workspace, all I get are clouds with a question mark.

I attached two screen shots.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Making A Most Used Tool Button For Toolbar

Sep 22, 2011

I also note I could use excel but I have this thing where id like to have the lisp and AutoCAD run independent from other external programs.

I’m the CAD monkey at work and I’m given unbelievable autonomy to what I build (sometimes I confuse work with hobby) put all to one side. My functions often require toolbars with several buttons on them what I would like for one toolbar in particular is to make a most used function button. Better said a button at the beginning of my toolbar, which execute the most used button from within that entire toolbar.
The ideas so far is to add a write-line (append) function lisp for every button this would intern write a button codename/ reference example SNP for snap and SAV for save and so on. All easy I can do this.
What I’m having difficulty with is actually counting the instances of the most used button using lisp. At the moment I’m resorting to a program, which needs to be shelled first, to recalculate the whole list it works but is messy and quite patch worked. The highest instance would then be used to set a variable, which would be used as the command in the so-called “top 1 tool button”

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Make Button For Toolbar Or Tool Palette?

May 17, 2011

I'd like to make a button for the toolbar or the tool palette that will print consistently every time I use it.

For an example, I want to click this button that has the parameters for ADOBE PDF, 11x17, Lanscape, a certain Plot style table, etc......

I want to make a button for each print setting I use.

HOW...HOW can this be done? my inquiring mind wants to know!!  

Having this little button will just me me that much more proficient, and ever bit of time certainly counts when under pressure to get out some drawings.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: How To Migrate Custom Tool Palettes And Toolbars

Dec 2, 2013

How do I migrate my Custom Tool Palettes and Custom Toolbars from Civil 3D 2012 to Civil 3D 2014?

What files do I need to create or copy to transfer to 2014?

My Custom Tool Palette consists of Block Symbols, Border Sheets, Scales and Seals, Lisp Routines etc.

My Custom Toolbar is just a number of standard cad commands I've put together in my toolbar like Revision Cloud, Layer Isolate, Match Properties, Attach Image, etc.

Do I need to export out my cui file, do I need to create a Profile file, do I need to setup the same directory structure naming and copy my files into those same directory names?

Or is there some easy hidden Magic Button in Civil 3D that you click on and it does the rest?

I'm not sure that I actually want to access the button per say, but instead launch the dialog box. I'm not sure if this differs your answer in any way, but I searched the customization forum and found little information.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Button Images On Custom Toolbar Do Not Display

Aug 28, 2013

I have a custom toolbar that I've used for years in an olderversion of CAD. Now I'm in 2012 and loaded my custom toolbar in from my previous CUI. Naturally it dropped in all question marks even though I have all paths in the support file added. I even copied all my bitmaps to autodesk's default bitmap location. Neither work. 

So after that I went into the CUI and manually selected the bitmap image for "small image" and "large image". It shows in the CUI now, but no luck on the main board. (also, not that this matters, must be a glitch but it won't even show in the CUI until i manually select another bitmap and reselect my origional desired image)

So then I tried taking the whole path and copying it into the CUI manually but it goes right back to defaulting to (MYIMAGENAME.BMP) without keeping the extension. My other custom toolbars loaded with all the pictures but this one just refuses to cooperate.

AutoCAD Inventor :: VBA Code To Toggle Custom Button Image?

Jun 5, 2013

I have created some custom button in VBA. I wish I can make those buttons toggling their image.

For example my custom button toggles Part/Component priority or Highligt on/off and I would like the button image will change showing the current state.

The background image color change will work too, or the some extra tiny mark on working sceen would be useful if it quite complicated to deal with ribbons.

Generally I need to see the current state at glance.

I don't know if this can be done....but I get so tired of reaching up and hitting the ESC button or the spacebar. I would love to be able to put this command on either the right-click menu or either on a button. (I know if you can put it on the menu, you can put it on a button...but you get what I am asking...)

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: DCL Radio Button Label Length

Jun 28, 2013

I am trying to revise an old dialog box so that I can add some new options but I'm finding it difficult to shorten the label for a radio button enough to get the box width to look reasonable. I read somewhere that Windows fonts cause the label lengths to hold extra space for each character. The webpage that I found this on said the solution was to make a new line for the label, which sounded great to me, but they did not tell how to do it. After much searching, I figured out how to add an additional line to the label, but my program now refuses to function correctly. I set the middle button before initiating the dialog in my lisp, but when I select a different option, the original button remains selected along with the user's choice. The program actually works, using the last button selected, but I really want the button to respect the pick by the user and deselect the default button.

This worked perfectly when I had only two selections, and it still worked perfectly when I added the third option, but it just doesn't like it when I try to add a new line for the long description in the middle of a radio column.

I'm barely functional with dialog boxes..

DCL in question:
:boxed_radio_column { label = "Location"; width = 20; height = 2; fixed_width = true; fixed_height = true; alignment = top; :radio_button{key = "sl-AD"; label = "Spring Lake Applications";} :text_part{label = " and Distributor Services";} :radio_button{key = "sl-BP"; label = "Spring Lake BP Systems";} :radio_button{key = "gr"; label = "Grand Rapids";} }
lisp has the following in this order:

load dialog - I have a loading function that works fine
(action_tile"sl-AD"           "(TGW-Setup_01 $key)")
(action_tile"sl-BP"           "(TGW-Setup_01 $key)")
[Code] .....

Of course, these are just the pertinent sections of a much larger setup dialog, but I didn't think I needed to post all the functions that this program is doing, since you'd have a difficult time running this without my templates, printers and a number of support files.

Like I said, it seems to be choking on my adding :text_part {  Label = "      and Distributor Services";} instead of making this a single line of the label for the button above it.

Why does this cause the default radio button to stop releasing?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Update Radio Button Default Values In Dialog Box?

Apr 3, 2012

Rudimentary lisp & dialog box skillls here...

I have a little dialog box with seven radio buttons and a text box that generically accomplishes what it's supposed to do. To retain the current dialog values, I use the write-lline function to store the information and then use read-line to bring that information back in for other Lisps that I use. As long as the user doesn't open the dialog, whatever options were last selected will remain in effect.

However, if the user re-opens the dialog, then whatever defaults I have initially set up in the dialog will then become active (in other words, whichever of the radio buttons I have set to "1")

My question is whether or not I can have the dialog box set up so that if a user selects an alternate radio button, that radio button will keeo it's value whether or not the dialog is opened and until and if the user changes it..

As it is now, whenever the user opens the dialog box to change, say one radio button, the user then has to change the other radio buttons if the defaults don't match the current run requirements.

Here's the dialog and the lisp:

OPTIONS : dialog {
label = "   Counter to Cad Options";          
: spacer {
height = 0.75;

[Code] ......
