I am interested in possibly taking an Autolisp programming course, but wanted to get some information about Autolisp functionality:
I use Autocad 2002 with Arch Desktop 3.3 Acad is linked to a database program for space planning/management called FM Space. FM space has a menu that shows up in our Autocad toolbar, and lets users see vacant space, what dept each area is charged to, etc. I am required open some of our Autocad drawings in the directory (about half of the files), then click on the FM space menu, then type in a query in the dialog box. I also activate an "Autocad Layer State", then print the drawing.
I want to partially or totally automate this task after I initially start it. This would require running a lisp, that opens certain drawings, restoring a certain layer state, running a series of commands in one of the menus, printing the drawing, then exiting the drawing without saving. It should then move to the next drawing and repeat the procedure.
Would this be possible with Autolisp programing?
