VL : RetVal = (vla-Import object FileName InsertionPoint Scale Factor)

Layer Settings 

VBA : object.Import FileName 

VL : (vla-Import object FileName)


Signatures: Detail

RetVal = object.Import(FileName, InsertionPoint, ScaleFactor)

(setq thisdrawing (vla-get-activedocument 
                                      (vlax-get-acad-object)))

(setq util (vla-get-utility thisdrawing))
                        
(setq thepoint (vla-GetPoint util nil "\nInsertion Point: "))

(setq thescale (vla-GetReal util "\nEnter Scale Factor : "))
                        
(vla-Import thisdrawing "c:/test.dxf" thepoint thescale)
