the solution is to use the lip-file for save command.

inside there is a command with some parameters like ....
- DWG or DXF
- version

works perfect for an automatic command for a list of files.

Hi Lubos,

same for me.
I get more and more with VB and TS API to work.
To set element properties is no Problem.

But the index is only readable.
Maybe the official lob-Funktion can help you with this Step.

I will take a look next week.

Do you modify your TS? / how to decompile a lob

is it possible to decompile a lob-file?
.lob --> TopLip.exe --> .lip
i want to learn from original lip/lob codes of Missler.

the normal way is to compile the own code of a lip-file.

a late answer is also a good answer ;-) to execute a .lob file you need to add a new menu entry in TopSolid. 1. go in your config-path (example: C:\Missler\config) 2. edit or create the file "topext.men" with a text-editor 3. add at the end in the "topext.men" a new menu entry: %your menu entry { 4....
