; ***************************************************************
; HURRICANE 6.8.17 - SCRIPT CREATED 2/03/2011 : 1:30:55 PM
; ***************************************************************
; << START OF PRE-BATCH COMMANDS >>
_SDI 1
; << END OF PRE-BATCH COMMANDS >>
I NEED TO RESPOND "Y" AT THIS POINT
_OPEN
"C:\PB Standard Drawings\Concrete\MISCELLANEOUS CONCRETE DETAILS.dwg"
tilemode
0
-layer
When i ran and create a script the script hangs prior to the open command. It asks me "do you want to disregard changes" so i have to put "y" into the script between ; << END OF PRE-BATCH COMMANDS >> and _open. Is there anyway to do this as you create the script.

Hi,

Looks like your AutoCAD instance is making changes to the drawing BEFORE the script is run. This will cause AutoCAD to ask that question "Discard changes?".

To get around this, in Hurricane, go to the Tools->Options->PREFS tab, and in "To Open Drawings", select the TOP choice (OPEN with DBMod). This will insert some inline lisp like this automatically when you press the "CREATE Batch Script" button.

(if (/= (getvar "DBMOD") 0)(command "_.OPEN" "_Y")(command "_.OPEN"))

Rather than the standard "OPEN" command. What this achieves is that if when the script is running, and AutoCAD's drawing database reports it is "modified" (which will trigger the "Discard changes?" prompt), AutoCAD (internally) will read that line as "_.OPEN Y", rather than "_.OPEN"

You should be aware that IF you normally run your Hurricane Batch Scripts from a menu button, you MUST ensure that whatever drawing you are currently working on is SAVED BEFORE you run the script, or your current drawing changes will be lost.
