Xref original file name of the drawing

Hello!

 

I'm trying to get just the filename either with or without the .dwg extension for an xref given I already have its reference (BlockReference) and its model space (BlockTableRecord) all open for read; skipping accessing any BlockTable.

 

Im doing something like this:

 

  • Either get the XGraph and first node or prompt user for a block reference and check it's from attachment
  • Start active document's database transaction, get the BlockReference.
  • Get the BlockTableRecord only with the BlockReference's BlockTableRecord-ObjectId property.
  • At this point I can iterate through the model space and see the nuts and bolts of the xref drawing without actually changing anything after saving my drawing, even after committing a trasaction.

So what I want to know is how to get the filename of the xref'ed drawing (i.e. Original_Drawing.dwg).

I'm looking at doing this without opening the referenced drawing as a side database and checking the filename.

I can't debug right now, but is it. myBlockTableRecord.Database.OriginalFileName ???
