AutoCad :: Duplicating Attributes With Visibility States

Feb 23, 2012

I have a simple block with option 1 having title at the left and option having the same title at the right. I can use visibility state should the title be mtext.

However the two titles are in form of attribute tag. Hence how to proceed?

AutoCad :: Attributes And Visibility States In Dynamic Block?

Dec 6, 2013

In the past I have not managed to get attributes to constantly behave themselves if I applied a visibility state to them. Following posts by steven-g where he has a method to get them working together I thought I would give it another try. His method was used to link the attributes to a further reference attribute to reveal a field but mine is far simpler, just requiring one of two numbers to appear depending on the project state.

I had two attributes which toggled their visibility but only the primary attribute would display UNTIL AFTER I locked and prest the attributes, wherein it all looks to be working as wanted.

So my question is, why does it now work (and will it continue to do so)?

I don't know if I could get away with only one of those actions but since I had something working I didn't want to break it. I will test it once these drawings have cleared my desk.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Attributes Not Working In Visibility States

Oct 28, 2013

I'm new to dynamic blocks.  In my first attempt to create a simple dynamic block with various visibility states in which each would have it's own attribute, the only attribute that works is the attribute in the first visibility state listed.  I have read all the postings I could find here in the group on this subject and have made the following changes suggested here to the block:

1. All attributes have distinct tags and prompts. (I even erased all the originial attributes and created new with original tags.)

2. All attributes are locked in position. 

3. I REGEN after selecting a different visibility state.

None of these changes has had any effect.  Still, then only attribute that opens an attribute edit dialogue box is the "W" attribute in the first visibility state listed.

AutoCad 2D :: Command To Bring Back Option Of Changing Visibility States On Previously Placed Blocks

Sep 6, 2012

I have a drawing with several dynamic blocks (over 1000 block references) with visibility states. I recently noticed that all of the blocks no longer have the option to change the visibility state (i.e. the upside down blue triangle no longer appears when clicking on the block).

If I insert a new block it comes in with the option to change the visibility state. However, the previously placed blocks still do not have the option of changing the visibilty state. Even if I update the definition of all block references in my drawing nothing changes with the previously placed blocks.

Is there an option/command to bring back the option of changing visibility states on my previously placed blocks?

AutoCAD Inventor :: BURST Attributes When Exporting To DWG

Feb 11, 2013

Is there a way to burst all Inventor sketch-symbols and titleblocks into plain text upon exporting (from Inventor to Autocad DWG format)?

iLogic, api, xml ?

Our biggest supplier still uses Autocad DWG format and needs to access theses attributes in plain text (scripting stuff). The only work-around, we have found is to re-open each exported files and burst these manually

--- extremely time consuming and not acceptable ---

AutoCad :: Any Way To Select Visibility States

Nov 7, 2011

I know that you can select similar for color, layer, line type but is there a way to select by visibility state? All of my dynamic blocks use visibility states depending on which view you want it in (i.e. plan,front or side) and in most cases differant sizes of the object. I would like to be able to change let say the size of an object in the plan view from visibility state 1/2" insert plan to visibility state 1/4" insert plan without going to each block.

AutoCAD .NET :: Is There Any Way To Make Visibility States Read Only

Jun 17, 2011

I have this dynamic block which has a visibility states. I don't want user to be able to change it. So I made grip visibility to 0 when I created the block. Now I realized user can change that thru the properties window.

I just want this to be change only within program interface .  Is this Possible ?

AutoCad :: Making Block With Visibility States

May 10, 2011

Is their a protocol for making a block with visibility states? I have not done this in a long time but I know the procedure for creating the visibility states but for some reason no matter how many times i adjust this one block i cannot get the this attribute definition to stop showing in visibility states.

I have tried doing a show all and hiding this attribute manually over and over again and i cannot get the block to hold the info. it looks right in the block editor but as soon as i insert this block i can see the visibility state is not right. is their a procedure of how i set up a block like this so that the visibility states will work the way i want them too?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Visibility States All Screwed Up

Apr 3, 2012

I work with a lot of blocks that use visibility states. I've immediately found that editing these in 2013 is impossible because of a bug. When I'm on "Visibility State 1"and select "Visibility State 2" from the drop down, the state just reverts back to "Visibility State 1". The actual block will change and my drawing from "State 2" will show up, but the drop down still lists "State 1". So, when I try to Make Visible an object (in order to put it on "State 2" which is currently visible on my screen), the object is put on "State 1". This needs fixed IMMEDIATELY. This makes Autocad 2013 worthless to my firm.

AutoCAD .NET :: Explode Dynamic Block With Visibility States

Oct 2, 2012

I have a dynamic block with visibility states.When I use the method BlockReference.Explode(entities) I get in 'entities' all entities including all those who are part of the visibility states not selected. But I want only the entities in the selected visibility state.What surprises me more, is that entities from other states of visibility, although they were added to the current space, do not appear.

How to retrieve only entities associated with the selected visibility state?Or how can I identify entities that are not part of the state of visibility?

var entities = new DBObjectCollection();selectedBr.UpgradeOpen();selectedBr.Explode(entities);foreach (Entity entity in entities){ currentSpace. AppendEntity(entity); tr.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(entity, true);}selectedBr.Erase();

AutoCad :: Create Dynamic Block With Several Different Visibility States

Jul 22, 2012

I'm trying to create a dynamic block with several different visibility states and for each visibility state I have created an attribute. Each attribute has a different text style because I need the size of the text to change when I change the visibility state. But on the model space I can only see and edit te attribute in one of the visibility states. How to create a block that allows me to see different attributes in different visibility states or that alows me to change the text stryle of the attribute acording to the visibility state?

AutoCad 2D :: Can Attribute Values Change Visibility States

Jun 2, 2011

The Question: Can Visibility States be changed by an Attribute Value instead of the drop down arrow?

The Situation: I am building an annotative block that the user wants to change appearance (ie different hatches inside a circle) based on an attribute value (1,2 or 3). The attribute is invisible and is one of +/-40 other attributes. I can change the appearance with visibility states and the little pull-down arrow on the block or the properties menu, but the user wants to be able to change it with attribute value. Is this even possible?

AutoCad :: Creating Dynamic Blocks With Visibility States

Apr 4, 2013

I use the RIBBONS when using ACAD, when creating Dynamic Blocks with Visibility States I am able to add, rename etc the states, but when I need to tell ACAD what to hide and what to show in each state I cant seem to locate the button within the ribbons to do so.

I find myself having to switch back to CLASSIC view to use them and then back to RIBBON.

See the 2 images.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Lookup Tables And Visibility States

Nov 27, 2012

This is my first dynamic block, and I am trying to make a pipe elbow that is selectable for pipe diameter, arc angle of elbow, AND radius of elbow. I got the diameter and the arc angle just fine, but I can't figure out how to do the radius of the elbow. I used a lookup table for the diameter constraints and I used my visibility state for the angle, seeing as I couldn't find a way to accomodate arc angles with a lookup table. What I'm stuck on is the radius bit.

I need to be able to select the radius or the elbow as either 1.5x, 2x, or 2.5x the diameter of the pipe. So for example, if I have a twenty inch pipe diameter, I need to be able to set the centerline radius of the elbow as either 40, 50, or 30 and then have the outside and inside radii fit proportionally. So in the case of a 20 in diameter, I would need one block with one variation that has radii of 30, 40, and 50, another variation with radii 20, 30 and 40, and yet another variation with radii 40, 50, and 60. I could easily make a reverse lookup table to do this for a single size pipe, but in order to do it for each pipe diameter I would need to be able to cross reference the other lookup table to pull the diameter value, and then have the radii respond to that value.

If this is even possible? And if it is not possible, how I could edit the arc angles with a lookup table instead of a visibility state? Because if I could do that I could use my visibility state to do the radii instead. My other options are to create a second and third dynamic block for each variation, or to add each individual radii variation to my lookup table. The latter of which I won't do because that is far too many options for a lookup table that already spans beyond the extents of my monitor. How I could accomplish all three of these tasks with a dynamic block.

Attached is the block as I have built it so far.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Stretch And Array - Visibility States

Aug 12, 2013

I'm trying to create a block for angled handicapped parking stalls. 

I used an array chained to a stretch in order to increase the number of stalls. It worked but for some reason it does not work in all of my visibility states. In some visibility states the array and stretch do not stretch together. The block should end with a stall but some end with a line and no stalls above it. 

I attached a drawing with the blocks. The block named "STALLS-60-HANDI" it works correctly except in visibility state 9' and in "STALLS-60-4space Handi" it only works in visibility state 10'.  

rename to dwg . fire wall would let dwg posting

AutoCAD 2013 :: Selecting Visibility States In Dynamic Blocks

Sep 26, 2012

Is it possible to select visibilty states of a dynamic block in a drawing, for ex. to count how many of each visiblity are in a drawing?

Ex.:

I have a drawing of a big pile plan with al lot of various piles in there. I made one dynamic block of the pile in which i can select what kind of pile i want to have visible. Now i want to count how many of each pile is in the pile plan.

If all different piles would be different blocks i could easily count with 'Block Reference' in 'Quick Select', but i dont know how to do the same with a dynamic block (which has one block name only) and its different visibilities.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Combination Stretching And Visibility States?

Dec 9, 2011

I am working on a few dynamic blocks with ducts.The plan is when you stretch the duct to far it will automatically place a coupling and the next peace of duct.

This wasn’t the problem but if I connect more than 2 ducts it goes extremely slow. (see attached file)

I think that if I am using larger steps between stretching (still testing this theory) it will go faster but this goes against my nature of being possible to exactly decide the length on my one.

AutoCAD .NET :: Update Dynamic Block Visibility States And Values?

Sep 21, 2012

I want to be able to update a dynamic block with data from our SQL Server database using a VB.NET program.

The dynamic block is configured to show office locations and has the associated office addresses for each office location embedded within the block.  However, over time, offices close, new offices are added, addresses change, and so on.  Plus, we have a dynamic block in each sheet size for several template types.  So, updating them remotely would be a huge advantage.  I'd like to just click a button, and know that the offices in the blocks were up to date and accurate.

Currently, I can use VLISP and the DBX technology to open each file and change the addresses.  But, I cannot figure out how to change the visibility state (office name) in the prompt list.  Anyhow, I want to drive the changes from a VB external application rather than having to open AutoCAD and run a LISP routine.  So...

how to modify the following properties of a dynamic block using VB.NET?

1. The visibility states prompt list. (add, delete, modify)

2. The associated values. (add, delete, modify)

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Visibility States / Text Linking

Oct 26, 2012

Is it possible to link text to each other through visibility states without creating a block within the DB? I have 2 visibility states.  Right Section, and Left Section.  All notes and text stays the same, geometry is the only thing that mirrors between states.

The hope is that when I update the text on the "Right Section" state, that the same text on the "Left Section" state automatically updates with what I did on the "Right Section".

I solved this by creating multiple blocks within the DB.  That works great, however there HAS to be an easier way to do this.

AutoCad 2D :: Create Dynamic Block With Multiple Visibility States

Jul 16, 2012

I run Autocad 2010LT at work, where I do fire alarm drawings. I've been trying to create a dynamic block (sort of a one stop-shop) for my wiring diagrams, and wanted to include device text with it.

My question is, is there a way I can create a dynamic block with multiple visibility states where each state has it's own independent/editable attribute definition?

Basically what I'm trying to acheive is the ability to make a different description layout for each one of my device types. (They all have a different function, and a different address style) Really so I can minimize the time I spend editing the formats when I'm trying to crank out a plan review ASAP.

AutoCAD .NET :: Insert Dynamic Block From File And Change Visibility States

Dec 19, 2011

I am trying to insert a Dynamic Block and change it's Visibility State. I can insert the block, and the visibility state changes, however, if I manually try to change it after, it does not change, even though the value has changed. My code executes and returns no errors, so I am assuming that I have done something wrong, or missed something out.
 
public class MyCommands { [CommandMethod("MyGroup", "Bolts", "MyCommandLocal", CommandFlags.Modal)] public void MyCommand() // This method can have any name {

[Code].....

If I insert my block manually, I can change the states and it works fine, but the code seems to break the block.
