I am trying to have my block with differnet visibility options but i dont want a long list to choose from under one parameter.  If I did what I am wanting to in one visibility it would be a very lond list of differnet comination options. The list would have 16 differnet options. Is there a way to have multiple visibilty parameters?

Depending on what you're doing, look into a block properties table.  Or if you search a little in this forum or the dynamic block forum there is a multiple visibility lisp floating around.  HTH

It can be done with lookup tables to control the visibility states.  DBs support multiple grips for lookup tables.


Here is a thread that covers it pretty well.


Also attached are a few examples that I created that have two grips that toggle between 32 visibility states but there are 4 choices in one grip and 8 in another.
