I need to open a drawing and read block attributes in each layout.



 Dim AcadApp As AcadApplication
        Dim AcadDoc As AcadDocument

            AcadApp = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application")
        Catch ex As Exception
            AcadApp = CreateObject("AutoCAD.Application")

        End Try
        AcadApp.Visible = True
            AcadDoc = AcadApp.Documents.Open(DWGName, True)

        Catch ex As Exception
            Exit Function
        End Try


  Dim Obj As Object


 For Each Obj In AcadDoc.Layouts

>> how to read each layout block attributes?

a layout can have multiple blockreferences! So if you like to get all titleblocks I would preferre to create a selectionset using the blockname of your titleblocks and go through that selectionset.


Look to >>>this blog<<< for selectionsets by blockname
