    Thumbs up Tip to find partially forgotten command

    I was having a few problems the other day and i couldn't find a variable i needed but i new roughly what it was called but every time i typed in the command line it was wrong.
    So i asked a friend of mine does he know it and he didn't but he told me to do the following.

    If you type in the first letter or letters of a command on the command line, but you don't know or can not remember the full name, you can press the TAB key and it will cycle through all the commands beginning with the letters you entered. Works on 2006 but I don't know if it works on earlier versions..

    Give it a try it worked for me..

    In 2k5 and above if you type SYSVDLG at the command prompt you get a dialog box with all the sysvars

    In LDT and C3D the command "SYSVDLG" does not work you get an error response unkown command.

    It's an Express Tool. You would need to load the Express Tools for it to work.
    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.

    In any version, type SETVAR then ? then ENTER and page through the listings.
    Doesn't work with commands, though.
