Text in cell as field - Quickfield addon
« on: January 21, 2024, 05:07:33 PM »
Hi,
I'm trying to figure out how to edit LEE MAC's Quick field Program to use the text value in mouse selected table cells to create a field and then insert it as attribute. Im thinking that i should read values with VLA but got lack of knowledge.
I will be grateful for any help.

I have an arx that may work, if you’re using AutoCAD 2021-2024
It was designed for mtext, not sure if it will update with blocks since they’re cached

Autocad was the issue, I've got GstarCad that dont support ARX. But ill try to test that on trial.
Thanks very much for answer.

GstarCad’s GRX has the evaluator, but it doesn’t have the dialog hook yet. Send them a support request.
