Re-type strings in texts to become in sequence
« on: December 22, 2011, 02:34:38 AM »
Hello everyone .

Is it possible to change two lines of texts to become numbered in sequence ?

Example to become like this ..

1   2   3   4
5   6   7   8

The main challenge is with the sequence and not with replacing the strings .

Many thanks for you all .  :-)

Give us some (several) examples of before and after.

Looks to be a sorting challenge but without actual sample data it's a guessing game how to implement a solution.

Show us your data by providing a (setq raw_data ...) sequence.

'( (5 6 3) (2 1 4 7) ) -> '( (1 2 3) (4 5 6 7) )

Thank you all .

I made this routine to change strings in texts but as in my previous shown in my previous image but I do not know how .  :oops:

Code: [Select]
(defun c:test (/ entis numb n ssnm en)
  (setq entis (ssget '((0 . "*TEXT"))))
(if entis
  (progn
    (setq numb 0)
    (setq n 0)
  (while
    (setq ssnm (ssname entis numb))
    (setq en (entget ssnm))
    (entmod (subst (cons 1 (itoa (setq n (1+ n)))); <<- I want numbers to be shown as in the previous image
                   (assoc 1 en) en))
    (setq numb (1+ numb))
    )
    )
  )
)

Well, as long as you aren't using AutoCAD 2011 you could use acad_strlsort .. or perhaps vl-sort ...

It does not matter what is the string in selected texts because I am going to change their contents to be in sequence as shown in above image .

Thanks

What's wrong with acad_strlsort in 2011?

Unless they have fixed it in a service pack, the first drawing you use acad_strlsort in AC11 it works as expected, when you open a second drawing and use it, an error is generated that says "incorrect number of arguments".

The steps to reproduce are:
Open AutoCAD 2011
Ensure SDI is set to 1
At the command prompt type:
Code - Lisp: [Select]
  1. (acad_strlsort (list "d" "a" "b" "C"))

The return value is ("a" "b" "C" "d")

Now open a second drawing in the same session:

At the command prompt type:
Code - Lisp: [Select]
  1. (acad_strlsort (list "d" "a" "b" "C"))

The return value is: Error: incorrect number of arguments.

This issue has been escalated as a bug at Autodesk so they can resolve it .. hopefully they did .. don't use AC2k11 so I don't know.

Worked just fine for me (MEP 2011)

Here is a quick modification of another program I wrote to renumber specific attributes in attributed blocks, modified to instead work for Text/MText:

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. ;; Renumber Text  -  Lee Mac  -  2011  -  www.lee-mac.com
  2. ;; Prompts for a selection of Text / MText objects and renumbers the
  3. ;; contents in the chosen direction, based on the text alignment point.

Like I said, it could have been fixed by now, but Owen Wengard (along with two AutoDesk employees) confirmed the bug.

You're welcome coder, I hope you can learn from the code  :-)
