lsp routine and sheet values

104 Views, 1 Replies

Hello All,

I run a LSP routine to create a drawing package. It sets up layout, Pneumatic, high voltage, low voltage and panel layout drawings.


It pulls them from a template project.


If you right click on a drawing, then properties, then drawing properties, under sheet values is sheet.


When I import the drawings that sheet value doesn't change.


How can I get that value to reflect the correct value?


I have been able to get the drawing numbers to be correct and need the sheet value to reflect that same value


I.E.. I import drawing 12345_MCP_001


I need the sheet value to also change to the 001


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

The SHEET value for a drawing is held on a SHEET attribute on a block called WD_M. This block should be on every AcadE drawing. If it isn't there you can use the API (c:ace_GBL_wd_m 1) to insert it. Then use standard lisp commands to get the entity name for it and then you could use the API (c:wd_modattrval ben "SHEET" "001" 1) where "001" is the sheet value.
