In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through a more advanced LISP routine using VisualLISP functions. The instructor discusses how to use VisualLISP functions and explains the format of most VisualLISP property functions. In addition, Josh creates a VisualLISP routine with you as he uses the VisualLISP IDE to inspect and run the code.
- [Instructor] In our visual lisp editor inside AutoCAD…let's create another lisp routine.…We're going to start inside this lisp routine…with a line of code named VL-LOAD-COM.…This makes sure that any visual lisp functionality…is available for use inside our lisp routines.…It's probably good to have this line of code…added to our acad.lsp file.…We'll talk about that in a minute.…
What we're going to do is we're going to take advantage…of the visual lisp functionality…and we're going to change the template drawing path…from our options that we set back in chapter one.…So to do that we first are going to get…our entire AutoCAD object application.…To do this, we're going to call…two different visual lisp functions.…One is getting the AutoCAD object…and then getting the application from the AutoCAD object.…
Let's inspect the results of running this function.…Notice the results we have…all the documents as well as the full name…of the program application location…as well as the program application location…the active documents and many other settings.…
