Does anyone know how to modify the column widths of an ACAD_TABLE?
I have known co-ordinates that I want each grip for the table to be set at. I can't just copy and paste the table from drawing to drawing. Each table of each drawing have different textual values, and the column widths will best be sized for each text value.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If using dxf methods (entget, subst, and entmod), then the column width dxf is 142 code.
If accessing object methods, use the setcolumnwidth method.
(setq o (vlax-enamd->vla-object (car(entsel)))) ;;select table and get table object.
(vla-setcolumnwidth o 0 4);;set the first column to 4 units wide.
I get the following error using the "SetColumnWidth" method.
Select object: ; error: no function definition: VLAX-ENAMD->VLA-OBJECT
For anyone doing a search on this, it should read (setq o (vlax-ename->vla-object (car(entsel))))
Using this method is way simpler than stepping through the 142 dxf codes.
Thank you so much.
