HOW TO GET MENUITEM TAGSTRING OR LABLE OF CLICKED MENUITEM USING VBA/LISP
Posted on 2004-09-30
running autocad map 5, this what I'm trying to do. I have several saved queries that I am running from a dropdown menu in a some what clunky way, got an idea to change it but am stumped.
I want to be able to click on the menu item and have it run a single dvb project (the same one for all) that gets the tagstring of the selected menuitem then runs the query using the 'case' method based on that tag string.
Right now I've got a seperate sub for each menuitem that uses a function call to the query function, and they are filling up my macro manager.
Is it even possible to get the tagstring of the clicked menuitems/toolbar items? I think this might be a good way to do a block insert toolbar also.
Thanks for any help, I've been stumped for 2 days.
willing to use lisp or a combo of the 2 if I have too....
