I'm trying to read and update labels from Xrefs.
The meaning of it is to Reload all Labels in the Xrefs before I plot any Layout.
Autocad is working in SingleDrawing mode.
What do I have to do to bring xDB and dbConn together so I can "read/reload" the Labels?
Here is a snippet of my code (which doesn't work as expected)
Thank you for any kind of help.
(System: Win 7 64bit, Autocad 2012 64bit, VB express 2010)
Dim xDB As New Database(False, False)
xDB.ReadDwgFile(filename, FileOpenMode.OpenForReadAndAllShare, False, "")
Dim acApp As Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop.AcadApplication = DirectCast(Application.AcadApplication, Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop.AcadApplication)
Dim acDoc As Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop.AcadDocument = Application.DocumentManager.GetDocument(xDB).AcadDocument
Dim dbConn As CAO.DbConnect = acApp.GetInterfaceObject("CAO.DBConnect.16")
Dim lbls As CAO.LabelTemplates = dbConn.GetLabelTemplates()
Dim lnks As CAO.LinkTemplates = dbConn.GetLinkTemplates()
What is the problem you are facing? Usually when creating Database to ReadDwgFile we use
Dim xDB As New Database(False, True)
Can you try that?
Thank you for your reply Augusto,
I tried both: Database(False, False) and Database(False, True)
I don't know where exactly the problem is. All I know is that this two lines of code don't bring any result.
lbls ans lkns are empty!
So I guess dbConn.GetLabelTemplates() doesn't read from acDoc.
What do I have to do/change so lbls and lnks represent the labels and links in my Xref?
