System Variable : BackgroundPlot

514 Views, 2 Replies

The 2006 .Net API allows you to modify a subset of the system variables. They are made available as properties of the "Autodesk.Autocad.DatabaseServices.Database" object.

Is there a way to query and set the value of a system variable that is not part of the subset that is included in the API?

Is there a simple way to query / set the value via a lisp statement ?


I am interested in quering and modifying the values of "BackGround Plot"

FYI : You CAN NOT use the .Net API to plot to a file without changing this varible to "0". Nasty things happen if you try.

In lisp : (setq value (getvar "BACKGROUNDPLOT"))
(setvar "BACKGROUNDPLOT" 0)

In vb.net:
Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop.AcadDocument.GetVariable and
SetVariable methods.
