Greetings, i would like to ask u this....

 

Iam using AutoCAD map 3D and i want to find out how to add modified date, or creation date to quick properties or properties? So I can see when this layer or this 3dpolyline was created and if i can see also by whom it was created...

 

The summary i want to add modified field to each layer i make, so when i modified it i can see when it was modified or created and by which user

Hi,

 

>>>crossposting<<<

 

You first need to write an app that watches creation and modifications of objects and save that date/time to the entities. If you have done these part of the work you can look for how to display this data in property-window.

Depending on what development-type you are using (ObjectARX, dotNET, LISP, ...) >>>this link<<< may be a help for how to get additional info displayed with the property window.

Hi,

 

>> but for now is there a fast solution ?

Sorry, I don't know any application that is storing modificationdate and creationdate on each entity.

And I think there are things to verify how you need it, e.g. what date should be stored on a polyline that is joined from two lines with different creation dates ..., what happens with items you insert into a new drawing (are they new created or do they have to take the date from their original drawing) .... and where do you store the date/time of a geometry-modification of type "delete" ... and there are a lot more items to take care of.
