Reactor Functions Reference (AutoLISP/ActiveX)

 
 
 
NoteActiveX support in AutoLISP is limited to Windows only.

Reactor functions define, query, and delete reactors and reactor properties. Before you can use these functions, you must load AutoLISP reactor support by issuing the following function:

(vl-load-com)

The vl-load-com function initializes reactor support and a number of other AutoLISP extensions.
