Make or Get and Set Layout
« on: May 10, 2022, 01:45:22 AM »
Any ideas on compacting this, or making it simpler . . . I'm a little brain dead.

Hi,

There's no need of a transaction to create a layout and make it current.
Code - C#: [Select]
  1.         private static ObjectId CreateLayout(string layoutName)
  2.         {
  3.             ObjectId layoutId;
  4.             var layoutMgr = LayoutManager.Current;
  5.             if (layoutMgr.LayoutExists(layoutName))
  6.             {
  7.                 layoutId = layoutMgr.GetLayoutId(layoutName);
  8.             }
  9.             else
  10.             {
  11.                 layoutId = layoutMgr.CreateLayout(layoutName);
  12.             }
  13.             layoutMgr.CurrentLayout = layoutName;
  14.             return layoutId;
  15.         }

Thanks Gile.
That will certainly clean it up :)

appreciated !!

added: I started playing with this because of a question at the other place where the Layout1 data was removed . . which I couldn't understand :)
