Jeffery Sanders gives us Get and Display Area (Tip #2000), an elegant and simple function. Load the ga.lsp AutoLISP file and then type GA at the AutoCAD command line. Select a point inside an area, and it's labeled with a number, the area in current drawing units, and the perimeter of the area. The current text style is used for the label centered on your pick point. The setting in the AutoCAD system variable USERI1 controls the value of the number displayed. It starts with a value of 1 and increments by 1 each time you use the GA command.
