AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Set Z Axis Orientation To Two User Points To Draw And Extrude Circle

Feb 10, 2012

I'm trying to change a routine i just wrote that draws 3d pipes. I wanted to make it so that when a user selects the beginning point and ending point of the pipe, the LISP changes the ucs to that vector, draws the circle at the beginning point and extrudes it to the second point.

It actually works great except when the ucs changes, so do my user points because of teh origin change. Is there a better way I might get this to do what I wnat it to?
(setq ip (getpoint "
Pick First Point:"))(setq ep (getpoint "
Pick Second Point:"))(command ".ucs" "za" ip ep)(setvar "osmode" 0)(command ".circle" ip "d" od)(command ".extrude" (entlast) "" (distance ip ep))(command ".ucs" "w")(setvar "osmode" oldsnap))

AutoCAD .NET :: Retrieve Attributes Without User Input

Sep 14, 2012

I develop addins for Inventor primarily, so the AutoCAD api is very new to me.  I'm working in AutoCAD 2010 and visual studio 2012.

I've looked at many posts for getting block attributes, but they either seem to assume I already have the Blockreference, or they give a prompt to the user.  I'm hoping to avoid both of those.

I know the info I need is inside of a blockTable by the name of "DET".
Database acCurDb = openDoc.Database;using (Transaction acTrans = CurDb.TransactionManager.StartTransaction()) { //How can I access the blockreference in here which corresponds to the blockTable "DET"? }

AutoCAD .NET :: Trapping Escape Key Without User Input?

Jan 3, 2012

Any way to trap when the user hits the escape key without a user input function. The idea is to loop infinitely and perform some analysis until the user hits the escape key.

I suppose I could do the same thing with a form but I would not.

AutoCAD .NET :: Imperial Input From User In Foot Inch

Aug 30, 2011

I have a form with some textbox on it, which should be filled in with imperial dimension. Like foot and inch.  Users right now complain about it is not user friendly  ,to put data in form, and honestly they are right. I didn't a good job .

Some people like to put vetting in inch and then by the time textbox lost it focus it should automatically convert data to feet-inch format. Some other user like to put decimal I have to be able to should them in  1/8 inch.

some user like to use space as separator between foot and inch and some other like to use dash.

Bottom line I stocked. Is there any function for this in autocad ?

when I look at my code I just struggled with pure string. I thought maybe there is something in autocad which give developer this option. Like the way we input dimension in command prompt.

AutoCAD .NET :: Getting User Input Error After Showing A Paletteset

Aug 12, 2011

I have got a problem about getting user input. In a function i am first getting a selection from the user by editor.getselection(...)

then i show a palette set with my user control in the same function. everything is fine so far.

but after showing paletteset i try to get a string from the user by editor.getstring(...) in the same function but statement continues as i never request it. when i check the PromptResult status it is equal to cancel.

i mean

Transaction acTrans = null;
Document acDoc = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument;
Database acCurDb = acDoc.Database;
acDocLock = acDoc.LockDocument();
using (acDocLock)

i tried to lock the document but it doesnt work either. when i comment out "showpalette(true)" it works correctly. i realized that if my document window s state is not WindowState.Maximized then my code works just fine but if it is WindowState.Maximized it does not work.

Even if i use the "@ pause " sequence it doesn't work.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Pausing To Allow User Input?

Dec 14, 2013

I want to write a very simple AutoLISP program to scale selected objects by a factor of (1/25.4).  How to I get the program to pause and allow the user to select the base point?  I know that "~" will bring up a selection window, but what is the character that will allow point selection (in this context)?  While we're at it, what is the operator that would trigger a pause and allow user command line input?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: How To Locate WDP File With Minimal User Input

Sep 23, 2013

I am trying to locate a .wdp file with minimal user input.  this is what I have so far

;All file saved in this folder

(setq filedir "I://PROJECTS//")

;User will put the following in, but there might be a small description after 915-01.  That is why I have a wildcard

(setq filename (strcat "915-01*"))

; string together everything

(setq nextlevel (strcat filedir "JOB " filename "*" "//ACAD"))

;; the final path should look something like this:

I://Projects// JOB 915-01(something here... could be anything or nothing)//ACAD//915-01(something else could be here as well).wdp

;set file extension

(setq fileext ".wdp")

; search files

(setq wdp_file (vl-directory-files nextlevel (strcat filename "*" fileext)))

I am confused on where and when I can use wildcards for searching directories.

AutoCad :: Unable To See Coordinates / Input Bar When Draw Object

Aug 16, 2011

I just stated using AutoCAD 2006 this summer as an intern for an engineering department. The program has become pretty easy to use and I thought i was getting the hang of it.

All of a sudden, when i draw a line, circle, or another shape, i can't see the input bar that floats at the end of the line.

What im talking about is the small display that always sticks to the end of the object your drawing. It displays the angle the line is drawn at, you can see what measurement you're typing in.

Xara :: Using DP6 To Create User-input Form

Jun 8, 2011

Create a Form that can be sent to a customer as an email attachment. The customer must be able to Save and Open the Form with software that is available on most Windows computers. The customer should then be able to enter the requested information in the Form, Save the Form and then attach it to an email and return it to the sender.

I could achieve the above using MS Word. But it is a real pain to layout a complex Form using Word. I would much prefer to do this using DP6 as it is considerably easier to lay the Form out.

But... I simply cannot see a DP6 Export file-format that I could use to achieve this result.

Revit :: Custom Ceiling Grids By Input From A User

Apr 2, 2013

I'm inquiring whether or not it is possible for Revit ceilings to be customized by the input of a user regarding the shapes and sizes without using a .pat file. Almost like a parametric object with predefined limitations. For example: a rectangular ceiling tile 'x' can be from 6 inches to 10 feet and side 'y' can be from 6 inches to 6 feet. So someone can select the ceiling type and actually input what size 'x' and 'y' they'd like while staying within those limitations.

AutoCAD .NET :: Prompt User To Pick Point On Circle With Given Radius?

Jul 25, 2013

I need my users to pick a point p, enter a distance r and a direction v. A new point should be created r units away in vectorial direction. Therefore, the new point is located on an imaginary circle with radius r and center p.

Currently, the user picks the first point and enters a distance. Then, he has to pick another point (Editor.GetPoint with UseBasePoint = true), I calculate the vector between both points, create a new point (with location = BasePoint.location) and translate it d units in vectorial direction. This works of course, but the problem is, that the user doesn't see directly, where his new point is located, since he may pick a point closer to or farther away then r units.

Naively spoken, I want to restrict the line between BasePoint and new point while prompting the user to a fixed length. Native calls to ObjectARX-methods would be also okay.

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Draw A Circle With Diameter Of 1.24E -10m

Oct 1, 2012

What is the smallest object I can draw and "SEE" in AutoCAD? I was hoping to prove a point in my introductiory AutoCAD class, but it appears I have been lying!! I tried to draw a cirlce with a diameter of 1.24E-10m. The dot shows up, but I cannot zoom to it. I tried using an enormous zoom scale, but did not have any luck. I am almost positive my instructor introduced the capabilites of AutoCAD by drawing a full scale helium atom, and that was release 14. Is this still possible? Obviously the atom can be drawn, but what are the zoom limitations?
