Completing a Word by Apropos
If you have worked with AutoLISP
before, you may have had to type in an expression similar to the
one shown below:
(setq myEnt (ssname mySelectionSet ssIndex))
Often, it is confusing to
keep track of all the selection set functions: ssname, ssget, sslength,
and so on. VLISP can help, using its Complete Word by Apropos feature.
To use the Visual LISP Complete
Word by Apropros feature
- Scroll to the bottom of the gpdraw.lsp file
and enter the following on a blank line:
- Press CTRL + SHIFT
VLISP displays a list of
all AutoLISP symbols that begin with the letters ent.
Use the cursor keys (the
up and down arrow keys) to move through the list. Select ENTGET,
then press ENTER.
VLISP replaces the ent you
typed with ENTGET.
- Delete the code.
