File name is part of the project file (text file with .wdp extension).
If file name is changed, it must be changed in the project file too, so that ACADE Project Manager can find that file.
i renamed drawing and i also changed WDP file.
i can see in the folder,but in autocad i cant get that..
It will be renamed in folderwise and WDP file also,
but it doesnot show in autocad electrical..
I renamed drawing in folder and WDP file..It renamed well...
But i cant see in autocad electrical at that time,Once i restart autocad electrical it will renamed correctly..
Autocad electrical is not refresh,if i click refresh icon it will not refresh,,
But if i open another autocad electrical,it renamed correctly.
Why are you trying to do what you are asking? It is all so simple using the ribbon. This might be an excuse as I do not understand the programme you are writing.
To change the drawing names the files must be in the project with the project active. Close the drawing within the project and then rename the drawing. Use the rename button within the project. This does all the house work for you.
I will follow this thread with interest.
Actually, i want to rename drawing name using vb.net?
So,I renamed Drawing name in WDP file...
when i renamed drawing name in wdp file using vb.net code, it will changed drawing name correctly in Wdp file and folder also..
But i cant see that changes in AutoCAD Electrical Window. Once i restart AutoCAD Electrical, i can see that changes.
ACADE is not aware of changes done only using vb.net.
Using API functions or RENAME command, project update is invoked.
Project update is also invoked on ACADE restart and that is why changes are seen.
