List of Records in Document

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to retrieve a list of records in the document.  If I have nothing selected, there is a list of records in the Data pane of the th OIP, but I don't see any thing like FRecord from where I can start to build a list of records with NextObject().  It would be a real shame to have to query every object to see if it has a record.

Peter is quite correct in that BuildResourceList will do the trick.  47 appears to be the Object Type for Record Formats.  The one downside is that it will list the records for all plug-in objects in the drawing as well as the Record Formats in the Resource Manager, which can become a bit much if you have a lot of plug-in objects or different types in a drawing.  Sample code I used to test is below.

PROCEDURE GetRecordList;



	FOR i:= 1 TO numRecords DO
			test:=Concat(test,'  |  ',GetActualNameFromResourceList(recList,i));
	Message('Num Records: ',numRecords,'   ',test);

Thank you Jesse.  I didn't read the function reference carefully enough, and missed that "0" would yield just the document resources.  Not the first time for that. 😕
