There are some drawings in other cad software that have external reference drawings that are not shown (unloaded). Is it possible to add this in VDF ?


In version 6020 a new property IsXrefUnloaded of vdBlock was added.

Default value for IsXrefUnloaded  is false.

Set it to true in order to unload the ExternalReference document and make it invisible.

Also a new CommandOption argument "U" was added in CommandAction.CmdXref method

example :

  CommandAction.CmdXref("U","Xref1.dwg",null,null,null,0);  //Unload the previous attatched "Xref1.dwg" and make it invisible.


 CommandAction.CmdXref("R","Xref1.dwg",null,null,null,0); // to reload the drawing and make it visible

Also a new button "Unload" was added in frmXrefManager dialog resources of vdFormsRes project
