For those following along, I think this version one ups the command explode and mtext.  If you explode mtext that is isn't left justified, it will line up the text correctly, but will make the text left justified, but with my explode method, it will keep the justification either left, middle or right, so that it is truly lined up.  Just an FYI for those following along.  We now return you back to your regularly scheduled program.

I'll see what I can do about that Luis.

And Vovka, I will see what I can do about that also.  The fraction is the problem.

Tim,
I'll probably just need to substitute spaced for the tabs before I do the mojo on the string from net.

.. homework for the weekend


also homework .. is there any way to determine the no. of characters shifted by a tab ????

Not that I know of ( was wondering the same thing ).  I'm not even sure where it would be located.  If it's an Acad thing, or a font/shx file thing.  Right now I just place four spaces per tab.

I was able to do this:

Quote
*** Command: XMT
*** (ExplodeMText <ename>) Return T or Nil

Quote
Command: XMT
Select a mtext entity:

(ExplodeMText (car (entsel "\nSelect a mtext: ")))

Attached it is a debug objectARX file for AutoCAD 2007 to 2009

Luis,
Is there any special reason why you don't post your code ???

Wow Luis!  It even worked great on that last one by Vovka.  But it only explodes the text to model space.  I tried it on an mtext object in paper space, but the text was inserted into model space, and put it on layer 0.  Still impressive though.  Dang ObjectARX.  :cry:

It was just a quicky one... simple implementation of AcDbMTextFragment structure, was going to do these other properties like: italic and bold, underline, overline.... but it is to much :)

Nothing special at all, I was able to work a little more on the project and it is now (the ObjectARX source) here:

First of all, thanks for the work on this code.  The ability to explode mtext inside of blocks is an extremely nice feature.  Unfortunately, I think there is a problem with how this program handles text with a width of 0.  When the dxf code 41 is 0, it seems to split the string incorrectly.  Here is an example:
Code: [Select]
(entmake
  '((0 . "MTEXT")
    (100 . "AcDbEntity")
    (67 . 0) (410 . "Model")
    (8 . "0")
    (100 . "AcDbMText")
    (10 0.0 0.0 0.0)
    (40 . 0.15625)
    (41 . 0.0)
    (46 . 0.0)
    (71 . 7)
    (72 . 1)
    (1
     .
     "\\fMyriad Roman|b0|i0|c0|p34;\\W1;realLy_longwordtestsTring"
    )
    (7 . "Standard")
    (210 0.0 0.0 1.0)
    (11 1.0 0.0 0.0)
    (42 . 0.550595)
    (43 . 0.15625)
    (50 . 0.0)
    (73 . 1)
    (44 . 1.0)
   )
)

_$ (EXPLODEMTEXT (vlax-ename->vla-object (ssname (ssget) 0)) (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))

"re"
"lLy_l"
"_longwor"
"ngwordtests"

_$


Strings containing spaces and having a dxf code 41 = 0 also are split incorrectly see:

Code: [Select]
(entmake
  '((0 . "MTEXT")
    (100 . "AcDbEntity")
    (67 . 0) (410 . "Model")
    (8 . "0")
    (100 . "AcDbMText")
    (10 0.0 0.0 0.0)
    (40 . 0.15625)
    (41 . 0.0)
    (46 . 0.0)
    (71 . 7)
    (72 . 1)
    (1
     .
     "\\fMyriad Roman|b0|i0|c0|p34;\\W1;test STring with spaces"
    )
    (7 . "Standard")
    (210 0.0 0.0 1.0)
    (11 1.0 0.0 0.0)
    (42 . 0.550595)
    (43 . 0.15625)
    (50 . 0.0)
    (73 . 1)
    (44 . 1.0)
   )
)

_$ (EXPLODEMTEXT (vlax-ename->vla-object (ssname (ssget) 0)) (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))

I made a change to fix the case for zero width mtext entities.  It seems to handle long strings with and without spaces correctly.  I am not sure that it didn't break other cases, but I offer it for others anyway.

Code: [Select]
