dumpallproperties
 
 
 

Retrieves an entity’s supported properties.

(dumpallproperties 
  ename [context]
)

Arguments

ename

Name of the entity being queried. The ename can refer to either a graphical or non-graphical entity.

context

Value expected is 0 or 1, the default is 0 when a value is not provided. When 1 is provided as the context, some property values such as Position, Normal, and StartPoint are promoted from a single value to individual X, Y, and Z values.

For example, the following displays the StartPoint first as not being promoted and then being as promoted:

  • Not promoted, context = 0
    StartPoint (type: AcGePoint3d)  (LocalName: StartPoint) = 6.250000   8.750000  0.000000
  • Promoted, context = 1
    StartPoint/X (type: double)  (LocalName: Start X) = 6.250000
    StartPoint/Y (type: double)  (LocalName: Start Y) = 8.750000
    StartPoint/Z (type: double)  (LocalName: Start Z) = 0.000000

Return Values

nil is returned by the function while the properties and their current values are output to the Command Window.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to list the available properties for a line object with the properties Delta, EndPoint, Normal, and StartPoint promoted to individual values.

Command: (setq e1 (car (entsel "\nSelect a line: ")))
Select a line:
<Entity name: 10e2e4b20>
Command: (dumpAllProperties e1 1)
