autolisp for checking what the current / active space is..


I'm not too hot on autolisp and need to know how to check what the current / active space is..

ie: if active space is modelspace then blah blah
else if active space is paperspace then blah blah blah

basically, i want to swap to a different dim style dependent on which space i'm in.

any help would be great, thanks

RE: autolisp for checking what the current / active space is..

This should get you started

(defun c:Inscale (/ ip)
   (setq tm (getvar "tilemode")); This is the variable you are looking for
   (= tm 0)
      (alert "You Are Currently in Paper Space\nYou Will Be Switched to Model Space")
    (command "tilemode" 0)
     (setq #ds (getvar "dimscale"))
     (setq #cl (getvar "clayer"))
