Rollover Displays Handle

141 Views, 5 Replies

I was wondering if there was a way to get the object handle ID to display when rolling over an object or failing that, to get the handle ID to show up in the object quick properties?

 

At the moment I have to select each object and type LIST to get this information and it's very time consuming if I want to check the handle IDs for multiple objects.

Do you need to turn on ROLLOVERTIPS variable? You can control the contents using CUI command.

No the rollovers appear, but the object handle does not appear to be one of the variables you can select in the CUI to appear. I'm wondering if there's any way to add that as a possible selection within the CUI?

AFAIK you can't add an ability to the CUI like that: sorry I missed your specific need in my earlier reply.

Hi,

 

Dean is right, you can't display an entities handle with AutoCAD OOTB.

But if you have some knowledge about development (or you know any guy who does it for you) >>>this blog<<< shows how to modify the content of the rollovertips programmatically.
