Hi, when I select some polygons and try to use -mapexport from the command line manually and programmatically it gives me "0 object(s) of 0 selected, exported in 0 sec(s).".
This is what I try to run programmatically (and the same thing from the command line)
docum.SendCommand("-mapexport" + vbCr + "shp" + vbCr + inFile + vbCr) If isOverW Then docum.SendCommand("O" + vbCr) End If docum.SendCommand("Y" + vbCr + "X:\Legends\Test.epf"+ ".epf" + vbCr + "S" + vbCr) docum.SendCommand("P" + vbCr + "M" + vbCr + "last" + vbCr + vbCr + "*" + vbCr + "*" + vbCr + "N" + vbCr) docum.SendCommand("P" + vbCr)
It is not an issue with my profile because I can use it with Map->Tools->Export->Shape. It seems like when I try to run the command the selections are lost and I'm not sure why.
I also get a problem when I try to select polygons and then go to Map->Tools->Export->Shape where they are lost there as well. However, if I select them again, import the same profile I am trying to use above and run it, it exports to a shape file correctly.
I have AutoCAD Map3D 2011 set to allow selections before command and it works for other commands
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Did you try using UI tools and check if that works fine for your data?
I would suggest you to try the command line options and see the parameters it accepts and then use the same parameters in your code.
