Determine current plotter/pc3
« on: August 05, 2011, 04:45:59 PM »
Hello All,
I would like to know if there is a relatively simple way to get an open drawing's currently assigned PC3 or plotter name via AutoLisp?
I've been trying to figure this out all afternoon. I've searched this forum and the Net with no luck.
I know I've done this before, but for the life of me, I can't remember how.

Thanks!

Maybe this will help:

Code: [Select]
;;All layouts
(defun c:test nil
  (vlax-for tab (vla-get-layouts (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object)))
    (alert (strcat (vla-get-name tab) "  -  " (vla-get-configname tab)))
  )
  (princ)
)
;;Current layout
(defun c:test2 (/ tab)
  (setq tab
(vla-item (vla-get-layouts (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object))) (getvar 'ctab))
  )
  (alert (strcat (vla-get-name tab) "  -  " (vla-get-configname tab)))
  (princ)
)
