(command) in Modeless dialogs
« on: April 23, 2021, 12:40:00 AM »

Dear Support,

Is it possible to use the (command...) function to call an AutoCAD (or BricsCAD) command while a modeless dialog is running. A quick cjeck and it appeared not to work. Is there any setting which would make it work?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards
Rakesh Rao

The (command) function can only run from an existing command context. The usual solution is to create a wrapper command and run it asynchronously by calling (dcl-SendString "MyCommand\n"); or to set the form's 'Event Invoke' property to asynchronous so the event handler itself runs in command context.
