View Full Version : capture AutoCAD text window text

11-01-2005, 04:04 PM
Right now i'm getting autocad text "from the text window" by opening the logfile, after logfilemode = 1, logfilename = "whatever", and logfilepath is set, then I open and parse it as necessary, toggle logfilemode to 0, then resave the empty log if needed. It works, but as an alternative, and a little problem off and on for a few years (a how-to splinter), I would like to find out how to get those text messages as they are sent to the acad textwindow- any Ideas?
It sure would be nice to just be able to dip into the acad teaxt stream as needed...

Hi zenwest,

Have you tried COPYHIST? This (Ij ust found out about it today) should copy all autocad text in the text window to the clipboard and then you can paste to notepad (?).

Other than screen scraping (which is kinda what COPYHIST is) this may be a way ? Maybe?
