I have an external drawing processor and one of the functions is to read the layers in an AutoCAd drawing and if the name matches freeze/thaw it. With modifications over the years I have had it working with 2002 through 2008. Now I'm getting errors. When I tru to use the Interop, I get "Call Rejected by Callee" errors, when I use the
ApplicationServices method to get the application and active document, I getI" Method 'GetEnumerator' in type 'Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.LayerTable' from assembly 'Acdbmgd, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' does not have an implementation." errors.
Basically for the interop method I use this code:
Imports Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop Public Function GetAcadApp() As AcadApplication Dim progID As String = My.Settings.strAcadProgID Dim acApp As AcadApplication = Nothing Try acApp = DirectCast(Marshal.GetActiveObject(progID), AcadApplication) Catch ex As Exception Try Dim acType As Type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID(progID) acApp = DirectCast(Activator.CreateInstance(acType, True), AcadApplication) Catch ex2 As Exception MessageBox.Show("Cannot create object of type """ & progID & """") End Try End Try If acApp IsNot Nothing Then End If Return acApp End Function GetAcadApp acApp.Documents.Open("drawing path here", False) for each layer in acApp.ActiveDocument.Layers If layer.Name Like "XYZ" then '''''HERE is where I get stopped by Call Rejected by Callee layer.Freeze = False end if acApp.ActiveDocument.Regen(Common.AcRegenType.acAl
lViewports) Next layer
As for the other method, I use the sample code provided in the Autodesk wiki modified to be used outside of AutoCAD (I can post it if necessary)...
I just can't figure out why I'm being rejected. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It may be worth noting that the sample code from Kean's blog doesn't bother to revoke the IMessageFilter, so caveat emptor.
