Sheet Set translation (DST>XML>DST)
« on: December 03, 2016, 12:37:21 AM »
Oops! Posted this earlier but to the wrong forum. Been a long week!

Anyway ...

Based on this post by GILESP and lots of legwork by Jeff H and JAR (and others?) (thanks guys!) I coded up these functions to convert a Sheet Set DST file to XML, and vice versa. Has worked on all test examples, albeit not exhaustively. Anyway, for what it's worth ...

Typical use might be:

(setq

    xmlTest   "x:\\TestSetTest.xml"
    dstTest   "x:\\TestSetTest.dst"
)

(_DstFiletoXmlFile  dstSource  xmlTest)


Edit xmlTest to suit, then:

(_XmlFiletoDstFile  xmlTest    dstTest)

If dstTest proves ok use it to overwrite dstSource.

Cheers.

Thanks for the enthusiastic thanks. :)

I've tried it on 2 different machines, AutoCAD 2011 and 2012 >> Worked on both.

Thank you very much for sharing MP! I still have to do some more testing, especially with sheet sets containing subsets, but so far, so good in C3D '18!

Awesome, very pleased someone is running with this ó looks like youíve got a great utility coming together! We donít use SS so I had no motivation (esp with my insane backlog of work) beyond the fun technical challenge the underpinning code represented. Thanks for letting me know!

I was searching for months to found this solution.

please tell me how you did, step to step.
the world will be thankful.
