ACAD App Events
« on: October 09, 2007, 01:51:22 PM »

Hi

In my Acad.dvb file.

I have a Class module:

Dim AppEvents As New AppEventsClass
----------------------------------------
Code: [Select]
Sub acadstartup()

 Set AppEvents.ACADApp = Application

End Sub

and a module:

Code: [Select]
Option Explicit

Public WithEvents ACADApp As AcadApplication    'Use with Application Event Examples

--------------------------
Code: [Select]
Private Sub ACADApp_AppActivate()
 ' I want this code to work on startup
End Sub

However, I noticed that the app level events are still not triggering

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

THank you

Mark

What is it that you want to do upon startup?

I had to put my events in the This drawing module. BRB

edit: Added code

I must give someone else credit for this, but off the top of my head, I can't remember who helped me with this.  Maybe Bryco ??  Anyway, I'll go look in a minute.  Here is what they gave me to fix that app level event for end open
Code: [Select]
Option Explicit

Public WithEvents AutoCAD As AcadApplication

Sub App_StartMacro()
      Set AutoCAD = ThisDrawing.Application
End Sub

Private Sub AcadDocument_BeginCommand(ByVal CommandName As String)
      If CommandName = "COMMANDLINE" Then
            Set AutoCAD = ThisDrawing.Application
      End If
End Sub

Private Sub AutoCAD_EndOpen(ByVal FileName As String)
      ThisDrawing.SetVariable "INSUNITS", 1
      ThisDrawing.SetVariable "OSNAPZ", 1
      ThisDrawing.SetVariable "LAYEREVAL", 0
      ThisDrawing.SetVariable "LAYERNOTIFY", 0
      Dim strUser As String
      strUser = UCase(Environ("USERNAME"))
      Select Case strUser
      Case "UA02038"
      Case "UA03347"
      Case Else
            ThisDrawing.SendCommand "undefine" & vbCr & "BEDIT" & vbCr
      End Select
End Sub
Public Sub AcadStartup()
      Dim Preferences As AcadPreferences, intOsmode As Integer
      Set Preferences = ThisDrawing.Application.Preferences
      Dim strUser As String
      strUser = UCase(Environ("USERNAME"))
      Select Case strUser
      Case "UA02038"
            Preferences.Selection.PickFirst = True
            intOsmode = 71
            ThisDrawing.SetVariable "ORTHOMODE", 1
      Case "UA03347"
            Preferences.Selection.PickFirst = True
            intOsmode = 19
      Case Else
            Preferences.Selection.PickFirst = True
            intOsmode = 7
      End Select
      If intOsmode = 0 Then
            ThisDrawing.SetVariable "osmode", 3
      Else
            ThisDrawing.SetVariable "osmode", intOsmode
      End If
      Application.Preferences.Output.AutomaticPlotLog = False
      Application.Preferences.User.ADCInsertUnitsDefaultSource = acInsertUnitsInches
      Application.Preferences.User.ADCInsertUnitsDefaultTarget = acInsertUnitsInches
      ThisDrawing.SetVariable "OSNAPZ", 1
End Sub

End open wasn't available out of the box, but after these tweaks, it is

Everyone has a photographic memory, Some just don't have film.
They say money can't buy happiness, but it can buy Bacon and that's a close second
