Command line : CP_XD_SEARCH

The CP_XD_SEARCH command does a search (and optional replace) of extended entity data. You can search xdata fields by code as well as by position in the xdata structure. The search type will automatically be numeric or text based on the field type being searched. When there are multiple occurrences of the same code within the xdata structure, you can specify which occurrence to be subjected to the search / replace.

Toolbar : Extended Entity Data   
      Menu : CADPower Extended Entity Data  Display extended entity data from picked object
Command line : CP_SHOWXD
The CP_SHOWXD command displays on the command line extended entity data from a single selected object for specified application names (see dialog box).

Successive calls to this command can also be made with the shortened command version, CP_XD which will display the extended entity data without displaying the dialog box to specify the xdata application to be used. Use the full command CP_SHOWXD only if you wish to change the application names to be displayed.

Extended Entity Data
Create text labels from object data / extended entity data
Command line : CP_OD_XD_LABEL



The CP_OD_XD_LABEL command creates text labels from object data or xdata. The labels can be created using multiple fields with specified prefixes, suffixes etc.

In the case of extended entity data, the fields are specified based on their DXF codes applicable to xdata. The following DXF codes are allowed for labeling: 1000 (string), 1001 (string), 1040 (real) and 1070 (integer). The same xdata code can be chosen multiple times in any order. However, this order must be as per the order of xdata fields in the objects being processed.
