i'm invoking the dialog box the first time by using acedpostcommand to send a "exporttoautocad" command. the user will cancel the dialog box, and the script would run. its a simple open drawing (using document manager), then send the command -exporttoautocad and close the drawing. No p&id command needed. This works for both Plant3D model and P&ID drawing.
Something like this
foreach (string file in filePath.ToList())
ExportDrawing method below
var doc = Application.DocumentManager.Open(file, true);
var db = doc.Database;
Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument = doc;
if (counter < maxCounter)
Core.PostCmd("ExportToAutoCAD" + "\n");
Core.PostCmd("-ExportToAutoCAD 2010 " + localFile + "\n");
Thank you for your response.
While this is the same snippet that I've seen for LISP / Script files, I did finally find my problem. For some reason, some of my drawings had a different prompt for the export command, and I think it's because they needed to be audited/recovered.
I used this on a test project and it worked fine.
Thanks again for your help.
