menu help
« on: October 15, 2004, 08:41:09 AM »
in recent times i was not able to load my custom menu i created everytime i tried to load it my autocad crashed. i looked into it this morning and found out that it happened as a result of changing the name of my lisp folder from autocad to lisp files. the problem was i didn't update the menu file to reflect this. now having said that here is my question. i created a subfolder called 0-bmp which is located within my lisp files folder. i would like to seperate them for housekeeping reason. i put the folder in the search path but my icon don't show up in acad. do i need to somehow add that to my menu file and if so how? thanks

whoopsy you're right kate. at the beginning of my menu i changed the path to the new folder name from autocad to lisp files. on the next line i also added the 0-mybmps path. now it doesn't appear in my .mns did it save that to my .mnc? anyhow it's working now  :P

AutoCAD menu file - C:\Documents and Settings\dkelley\My Documents\LISP FILES\DAN.mnc

why not just compile the bitmaps into a dll with the same naem as the menu file that way it will always be there?

How? Is it possible in VBA? Or it is a C++ thing?
I read before that it is possible and I wish to try myself. Maybe with some help my wish will become true :D .

Try this link, there is a howto for creating custom menus that includes making a .dll of all your bimaps. Make sure you get version 0.9.
