List Box inside of Tables ?

191 Views, 1 Replies

Does anyone know if it is possible to have a list box within a cell or cells within a table ?

I am constantly using tables to produce plan of development tables which have repeating information.
If there was a way to have a list box inside a table then I could just click and select and no more typing.

Also, the ability to link a list box to another.
Eg. If I choose a specific house type in say column 1, then column 2 would automatically display the correct GFA for that selection.

If it can't be done.......then lets get this on a wish list. !

Thanks in advance.

There is no support for list boxes inside Autocad that I am aware of (...Of course, It would be interesting to be proved wrong!...).

If you are useing 2009 or newer you can easily get a bi-directional link with an excel spreadsheet. So one workaround would be to link an Excel file to your autocad file, and do all your edits to the excel file instead. The table in Autocad will update itself automatically.
