Owner of XRecord?

Owner of XRecord?

Owner of XRecord?

(OP)
I was scanning thru a DXF, and noticed the custom info embedded inside. I wrote some code to parse each entity in the drawing, and got some XData off of it, but still not the specific info I had seen/wanted in the DXF. It is in an XRecord, and im not sure which one.

How do I find which dictionary the XRecord belongs to?

below is a snippet from one of the DXF files - maybe it is of some use: (notice the path name ...)

RE: Owner of XRecord?

Hi rocheey,

You may need to import the DXF and then run the GetXRecordData VBA sample (in the VBA help documentation for AutoCAD), I don't think the DXF codes expose which dictionary owns the record.
