Program Description

This program enables the user to easily view the object or set of objects referenced by a selected Field.

Upon issuing the command syntax fieldobjects at the AutoCAD command-line, the program will prompt the user to select an annotation object (Text, MText or Attribute) containing one or more field expressions referencing one or more objects in the active drawing. Such fields may be created using my Areas to Field program, or my Area Field to Attribute program.

Following a valid selection, the program will enclose the selected annotation object containing the field(s) with a green rectangular text box, with links to every referenced object, each of which is surrounded by a red rectangular bounding box. The size of the rectangular frames relative to the enclosed objects is dependent on the current zoom level, and will automatically update as the user zooms & pans around the drawing area.

The diagrammatic display is retained until the user clicks the mouse or presses any key to exit the program.
