I want/need a program
« on: September 26, 2003, 09:27:52 AM »
It needs to do this:

prompt user for 2 points;
draw line between points
start extend command
use line to extend too
prompt user for "Select object to extend"
all I'm going to extend is a line nothing fancy.

Code: [Select]
(defun mst-extend2 ()
  (setq line (vla-addline
               (vla-get-ModelSpace
                 (vla-get-ActiveDocument
                   (vlax-get-object "AutoCAD.Application")))
               (vlax-3d-point (getpoint (setq x (getpoint))))
               (vlax-3d-point x)))
  (vl-cmdf "extend" (vlax-vla-object->ename line))
  (if (not (vlax-object-released-p line))
    (vlax-release-object line)
   )

BTW, My "junk" file is getting WAY to big. (I couldnt find anything i was looking for. :P )

Almost!! but close enough. :D
mine, based on yours.
Code: [Select]
(defun mst-extend2 (/ line)
  (setq line (vla-addline
      (vla-get-ModelSpace
(vla-get-ActiveDocument
  (vlax-get-object "AutoCAD.Application")
  )
)
      (vlax-3d-point
(getpoint "\nSelect 2nd Point: "
  (setq x (getpoint "\nSelect 1st Point: "))
  )
)
      (vlax-3d-point x)
      )
)
  (if line
    (progn (vl-cmdf "extend" (vlax-vla-object->ename line) "")
  (vlax-release-object line)
  )
    )
  (princ)
  )


notice the "" in the cmdf statement.
