  here is my code 


public static class Active
    public static Document Document
        get { return Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument; }

    public static Database Database
        get { return Document.Database; }

    public static string Name
        get { return Database.Filename; }

 Active.Name some return the autosave filename, e.g. 

C:\Documents and Settings\Davisas\local settings\temp\TDB0157-006A-FP00_1_1_1030.sv$

the correct one should be

C:\Documents and Settings\Davisas\local settings\temp\TDB0157-006A-FP00.dwg


Is this a bug? how to avoid it? 



Thank you so much.

No bug... the database is after the autosave associated to the temp file... so the answer from the database is correct.


You should use the name of the document instead. This would give you the desired Information.

public static string Name
        get { return Document.Name; }
