layoutlist function

(layoutlist) ... returns a list of strings of the layout tabs in the drawing.

 

I've used this ages... Isn't it a core lisp function, or is it coming from express tools or somewhere else?

LayoutList is a core LISP function found in the developer documentation.

I thought I recognized you from recent post concerning accorconsole.

acoreconsole says it is unknown function.

I see... I took the phrasing of your OP to mean "core" = basic, standard, vanialla AutoLISP (i.e. no Visual LISP, etc.), and not core console. 

 

Having read your recent post in your AcCoreConsole thread, this makes much more sense to me now... I'll be interested to see what becomes of it. 

 

Cheers!

I found what I needed... the below works in AcCoreConsole.

 

(defun GetLayoutListACoreConsole ()
 (defun massoc (key alist / x nlist)
  (foreach x alist
   (if (eq key (car x))
    (setq nlist (cons (cdr x) nlist))
   )
  )
  (reverse nlist)
 )
 (massoc 3 (dictsearch(namedobjdict)"acad_layout"))
)

Glad you got is sorted; thanks for posting the solution for others to find.

 

Here's wishing Autodesk would enbled full Visual LISP functionality for AcCoreConsole. *throws penny in wishing well*
