ATT Hurricane

hi i'm a new user !! need urgent help...

I' trying to write a script to batch e-transmit a bunch of drawings to single .zip files named with the DWG file name in a specific folder (might be the same file folderas well...).

I now have to do this through single e-transmit of individual files, but the save window pops up, and cannot find a way to avoid it.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks

Try

-etransmit

(the - (dash) is required to put the command into "command line" mode)

Hi Chowluca,

I don't recommend you have a script call a "Saveas" dialog box.

You should probably use $filename$ tag in Hurricane in your script, and avoid any pop-up file selectors.

If you insert $filename$ into your script, whenever Hurricane sees this, it will substitute in your current filename... You can do some cool things with this, i.e.
quote:

$filename$-et.dwg

would be an example...
