The AutoLisp Tutorial - DCL

Dialog Control Language - Set and Mode Tile


   Set_Tile and Mode_Tile


    Set_Tile - is used to set the value of a control. 

(set_tile  "key"   "value")

   Set_Tile has two parameters.  "Key" and "Value".

   "Key" - The name of the key you defined with the control inside the DCL file.

   "Value"- The new value for the control.

  • Edit_box
    • (set_tile "mybox" "Jeff") Displays Jeff in the edit box.
    • (set_tile "mybox" "4'-3 1/2") Displays 4'-3 1/2 in the edit box.
  • List_box
    • (set_tile "mylist" "0")   Selects the first item in the list.
    • (set_tile "mylist" "5")   Selects the sixth item in the list.
    • (set_tile "mylist" "")     No Items are selected.
  • PopUp_List
    • (set_tile "mylist" "0")   Selects the first item in the list.
    • (set_tile "mylist" "5")   Selects the sixth item in the list.
    • (set_tile "mylist" "")     No Items are selected.
  • Toggle
    • (set_tile "mytog" "0")  Removes the check from the box.
    • (set_tile "mytog" "1")  Checks the box.
  • Radio_Button
    • (set_tile "myradio1" "1")   Moves the selection to the first radio button.
    • (set_tile "myradio2" "1")   Moves the selection to the 2nd radio button.

  Use Set_Tile after the new_dialog and before the action_tiles.  Set_Tile can also be used as a function while the dialog box is displayed.


Mode_Tile - is used to enable or disable a control.    

(mode_tile  "key"   value)

   Mode_Tile has two parameters.  "Key" and Value.

   "Key" - The name of the key you defined with the control inside the DCL file.

   Value- The new value for the control.    0 = Enabled   1 = Disabled

    (mode_tile "mylist" 0)   Enables the list box

    (mode_tile "mylist" 1)   Disables the list box

  Use Mode_Tile after the new_dialog call and before the action_tiles.   Mode_Tile can also be used as a function while the dialog box is displayed.


  That is all there is to set_tile and mode_tile.   We will used them later on in the tutorial so you can see them in action.
