VLX Namespace Functions Reference (AutoLISP)


The VLX namespace functions listed below apply to separate-namespace VLX applications. These functions allow separate-namespace VLX functions to be accessible from a document namespace, enable the retrieval and updating of variables in the associated document namespace, and provide error-handling routines for separate-namespace VLX functions.
