Tip 2238: Enhanced Attribute Editor Tool
The Enhanced Attribute Editor Tool comes from Michel Chayer. The LISP code in this file is a programmer's tool for creating an attribute editor system. The application for this utility involves blocks with attached attributes for which you want to edit the value and location of the attribute objects. Function ECED defined in the LISP file accepts two parameters: the value to place in the attribute and the tag name. Inside the function, you are prompted to locate one block at a time. That block is then checked for attributes and, if the named tag is found, the value is changed. At the same time, AutoCAD's Attedt command is used to relocate the attribute in the drawing. It's a clever combination of AutoCAD command manipulation and LISP. Merci, Michel!
