To assist you in creating standalone applications, Visual LISP provides the Make
To run the Make Application wizard
- To start the wizard, click File Make Application New Application Wizard from the Visual LISP menu.
- Select Expert mode and click Next.
The wizard prompts you to specify the directory in which to store files created by
Make Application, and to name your application. Make Application produces two output
files: a .vlx file containing your program executable, and a .prv file containing the options you specify to Make Application. The .prv file is also known as a make file. You can use the make file to rebuild your application, when necessary.
- Specify your TutorialVisualLISPMyPath directory as the application location, and call the application gardenpath. Visual LISP uses the application name in the output file names (in this instance,
gardenpath.vlx and gardenpath.prv.)
Click Next to continue.
- The application options are not covered in this tutorial. Accept the defaults and
- In this step, the wizard is prompting you to identify all the AutoLISP source code
files that make up the application. You could individually select the LISP source
files, but there is an easier way. Change the pull-down file type selection box so
that â€œVisual LISP Project fileâ€ is shown, then click the Add button. Select the Gpath project file and click Open.NOTE:Depending on how you worked through the tutorial, you may have several Gpath project files showing up. Select the most recent file. If you copied in the completed
source code from Lesson 7, the project name to select should be Gpath7.prj.
After selecting the project file, click Next to continue.
One advantage of compiled VLX applications is that you can compile your dialog control
files (.dcl) into the complete application. This reduces the number of individual source files
your end users need to deal with, and eliminates any of the search path problems when
loading a DCL file.
- Change the pull-down file type selection box so that â€œDCL filesâ€ is shown, then click
the Add button. Select the gpdialog.dcl file, then click Open.
Click Next to continue building the application.
- Compilation options are not covered in this tutorial. Accept the defaults and click
- The final step is used to review the selections you’ve made. At this point, you can
select Finish. Visual LISP will begin the build process, displaying the results in
the Build Output window. Several intermediate files will be produced, as your individual
source code files are compiled into a format that can be linked into the single VLX
When it is all complete, you’ll have an executable file named gardenpath.vlx. To test it, do the following:
- From AutoCAD, click Manage tab Applications panel Load Application.
- Load the gardenpath.vlx application that was just created and is found in the TutorialVisualLISPMyPath directory.
- At the Command prompt, enter gpath and press Enter to execute the command from the VLX file.
