I am trying to write a LISP that does the following:
-Saveas as NEW drawing based on certain criteria from DCL menu
-Deletes old drawing
-*THEN, if drawing contain attached IMAGE FILE (.tiff in my case)
-Rename image file and repath image file based on the new file name
I have gotten it to do all of this, except I can not figure out how to change the "reference name" of the attached image file (.tiff)
Is this read-only data? I can manualy change it under xref manager, so there should be a way to do it via code...
The closest I have gotten:
;;after renaming and repath image file...
(SETQ NAME2 (substr (getvar "dwgname") 1 (- (strlen (getvar "dwgname")) 4)))
(setq item (vlax-ename->vla-object (entlast)));convert to vl object
(setq check (vlax-property-available-p item "Name" T));check if the entity can be updated
;if it can
;change value to match
(vlax-put-property item 'Name NAME2))
'Name seems to be valid w/ xref'd blocks but not xref'd/attached image files..
Any help is greatly apprecated!
check this...it will return T if it successed or nil if not
(defun rename_raster_image (AcDbRasterImage NewImageName) (if (vlax-property-available-p AcDbRasterImage 'name t) (if (not (vl-catch-all-error-p (vl-catch-all-apply '(lambda () (vlax-put-property AcDbRasterImage 'Name NewImageName) ) ) ) ) t ) ) )
