Routine to APPLOAD lisp file..

Routine to APPLOAD lisp file..

Routine to APPLOAD lisp file..

(OP)
Hi,

Does anyone know the best way to write a command or lisp or vba module that will perform the same function as the AppLoad command, so i can automatically load a LSP file back into autocad. Basically, i have a tools.lsp file which has lots of commands and lisp routines for our everyday office needs etc and everytime i update the file, i have to go around and re-load it into everyone's cad, which is a right pain. What i need is a simple command which allows everyone to load it themselves with a simple click of a menu button or keyboard shortcut..

Any ideas?

     Cheers,

Paul

RE: Routine to APPLOAD lisp file..

One of the "appload" options is to add the file to the "Startup suite" (suitcase icon).  From then on the routine loads upon opening any drawing.

Hi CarlAK,

Yeah I know it has and i have everyone's start-up suite with that file in it, but sometimes i might need them to load it on demand not when a drawing is open or first thing in the morning. Mainly its for me really, as i update the tools.lsp file with extar bits pieces and want to try things out, i don't want to have to keep doing the appload command and searching for the file and loading it etc, i just want to load it with a simple button click or keyboard shortcut

Ok maybe a button:

^C^C(load "tools.lsp");

Assuming file is on the search path that should work, otherwise include path:

^C^C(load "c:\\path1\\path2\\tools.lsp");
