    Default Manage Xrefs

    Hi everyone,

    Hope your holidays are going great...

    *****
    I'm a little over the manage xrefs notice...
    (Reload DWG xrefs)

    Ya, I know the xrefs change and yes I want the update right now...!!!

    I came here because maybe (I hope) some one has the code to make this automatic and
    stop having the little Cartoon Cloud from coming up...

    I have a quick key which update all xrefs but that little Cartoon Cloud still is there...

    I believe it is a time issue between computers. I could be wrong on that.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Sorry Opie,

    I found my answer...

    (setenv "XNOTIFYTIME" "0")

    I found it in help...
    Code:
    "Controls the notification for updated or missing xrefs.
    
    0
     Disables xref notification
     
    1
     Enables xref notification. Notifies you that xrefs are attached to the current drawing by displaying the xref icon in the lower-right corner of the application window (the notification area of the status bar tray). When you open a drawing, alerts you to missing xrefs by displaying the xref icon with a yellow alert symbol (!).
     
    2
     Enables xref notification and balloon messages. Displays the xref icon as in 1 above. Also displays balloon messages in the same area when xrefs are modified. The number of minutes between checking for modified xrefs is controlled by the system registry variable XNOTIFYTIME.


    *****
    I will not add it to my AcadDoc.lsp

    Others may need to see this to insure their are updated...

    Mmmmm....

    But I maybe could create something that updates without
    they needing to do anything...

    Mmmmm... Maybe NOT...



    Mmmmm again...
    Life went on before we had this before...

    Sorry again,

    I should of said...

    XREFNOTIFY

    then use 0

    I'm happy again...



    Last Time... Really...!!!

    I went with XREFNOTIFY 1
    That way I get a small notice without the cartoon cloud...
    This maybe the best of both worlds...

    You all have a great holiday



    CadDog OUT...!!!

    Thanks for keeping us informed in your little private discussion

    You're about 5 years away from pushing a shopping cart down the sidewalk full of cans while talking to yourself....

    Seriously though, thanks for the update, it's valuable info.

    Good one Ted...

    I was just in the moment and really didn't have time to wait for an answer...

    and now I got it...

    ccowgill

    That is the best of both worlds...

    (command "TRAYTIMEOFF" "2")

    Is now in my AcadDoc.lsp file...

    *****
    GREAT...!!!

    No more questions about the cartoon cloud coming up for ever...

    Thanks guys

    I would recommend against using command in your acaddoc.lsp, I would recommend to set it using (setvar "traytimeout" 2). commands really should only be called when starting up by appending the startup function. Check out this for more information.

    Great point...

    Will do, Thanks and thanks for the link
    I never read or saw that before
    or I may have forgotten or missed it...



    ******
    Just what I thought...
    I forgot...

    Here is how and where I place it...

    Within my AcadDoc.lsp

    Code:
    (defun s::startup ()
       (setvar "modemacro"
          (strcat
    ;;;  setup date and time name in lower bar
    "   $(edtime,$(getvar,date),DDD MO-DD-YYYY  H:MM AM/PM)"
    "$(if,$(=,$(getvar,userr4),0),  ----- $(getvar,users1) -----,    -- $(getvar,users1) Std -- $(getvar,users5))"
          );end strcat
       );end setvar
    
    ;;;;;;;; Variables Setting For Acad 2008 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    
             (Setvar "cmdecho" 0)
    
      	(setvar "TRAYTIMEOUT" 1)	;Turns the Cartoon Clouds off after a second
      	(setvar "XREFNOTIFY" 2)	;0 TURNS OFF XREF NOTIFITION CARTOON CLOUD
      	(setenv "XNOTIFYTIME" "1")	;xref notifition time = 1 minute
    	(command "UCSICON" "N")
    	(setvar "acadlspasdoc" 1) 	;allows acad.lsp to load on all sessions.(r1)
    	(setvar "ucsicon" 1)	;places ucs on NO origin mode.(r1)
    	(setvar "highlight" 1)
      	(setvar "hpassoc" 1)	;Added 10/2008
    	(setvar "attreq" 1)
    	(setvar "blipmode" 0)
    	(setvar "edgemode" 1)
    etc, etc, etc....
    Thanks ccowgill...
