    Default Get the table style of a selected table in autolisp or visual lisp

    Does any body know of some way to find out what table style a selected table is using? It does not seem to be part of the entget information or the vla information. As always, any help is greatly appreciated.

    AutoCAD based table or vertical application based table such as from Civil 3D? AutoCAD based tables provide the StyleName property. Verticals may or may not provide an interface for such. I know Civil 3D does not provide that information through the AutoLISP environment.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.

    Now that's just dumb. Haha

    Wonder if Gile would entertain the idea of implementing a reflection-based get; LispFunction method, using his Inspector code base, so users could query properties in .NET API directly from LISP.

    Not the same thing as allowing for set; obviously, but could still automate layer changes, etc in LISP, which would be great.

    What else is new? Most label elements in Civil 3D are not accessible to AutoLISP. I really need to move onto .NET.
