Filtering Extended Entity Data

Hi there,

In the following example I can filter a list of extended entity data based on the app (ssget "X" '((0 . "INSERT") (-3 ("MYAPP"))))

As an example I would like to find a list of entities that have the DXF code 1005 with a value of "571" attached.

Is there a way to refine the filter further without having to create a selection set and then stepping through each entity in the list?

I hope my explanation is clear enough :). Thanks in advance for your help.

Phillip

    Not possible in AutoCAD, but BricsCAD does have this feature:
    (ssget "_X" '((0 . "INSERT") (-3 ("MYAPP" (1005 . "571")))))

  • Sweet! That's why I love BricsCAD :)

    Thank you Roy for the timely response.
