; error: too many arguments with mlinestyle dictionary
« on: May 14, 2012, 12:09:21 PM »
Has anyone else seen this error when browsing the enames of the styles (in red below) when using (dictsearch (namedobjdict) "ACAD_MLINESTYLE") ?

((-1 . <Entity name: 7efafef8>)
  (0 . "DICTIONARY")
  (5 . "5F")
  (102 . "{ACAD_REACTORS")
  (330 . <Entity name: 7efafc60>)
  (102 . "}")
  (330 . <Entity name: 7efafc60>)
  (100 . "AcDbDictionary")
  (280 . 0)
  (281 . 1)
  (3 . "Standard")
  (350 . <Entity name: 7efaff00>)
)

Could you post some sample code which produces the error? How do you mean browsing the enames? Through entget? Or is it when you use dictnext/dictsearch?
Common sense - the curse in disguise. Because if you have it, you have to live with those that don't.

Sorry .. I was a bit vague.  :oops: I get the error accessing the items just about anyway (entget, dictsearch, just browsing in the vlide etc...)

Just this will create the error  (cdr (assoc 350 (dictsearch (namedobjdict) "ACAD_MLINESTYLE")))  :?

*Maybe it's an issue related to having both AutoCAD 2013 and 2009 installed on the same computer. Nope ... just tested on another computer.

the only time it gives an error here is when
(entget (assoc 350  (dictsearch (namedobjdict) "ACAD_MLINESTYLE")))

typo eror on my part where i miss the call to cdr, but i guess that would be too obvious  :-D

'Inspect' in vlide produces an error but entget works just fine
map 2005

edit
did you try vlax-ename->vla-object ?

Interesting .. same thing here. Thanks for looking into it.
vlax-ename->vla-object works for me.
