VBA Script sample

Sub PlotWindow2PDF()
' This example allows the user to define an area in the current layout
' and displays a plot preview of the defined area.
'
' * Note: You have to exit the
' plot preview before the VBA example will stop and control will be returned

AppActivate ThisDrawing.Application.Caption

Dim point1 As Variant, point2 As Variant

' Get first point in window
point1 = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(, "Click the lower-left of the window to plot.")
ReDim Preserve point1(0 To 1) ' Change this to a 2D array by removing the Z position

' Get second point in window
point2 = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(, "Click the upper-right of the window to plot.")
ReDim Preserve point2(0 To 1) ' Change this to a 2D array by removing the Z position

' Send information about window to current layout
ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout.SetWindowToPlot point1, point2

' Read back window information
ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout.GetWindowToPlot point1, point2

MsgBox "Press any key to plot the following window:" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
"Lower Left: " & point1(0) & ", " & point1(1) & vbCrLf & _
"Upper Right: " & point2(0) & ", " & point2(1)

' Be sure to plot a view, not some other plot style
ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout.PlotType = acWindow

' Send Plot To Window
ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout.ConfigName = "DWG to PDF.pc3"
ThisDrawing.Plot.DisplayPlotPreview acFullPreview
