AutoLISP: Select Attributes for Invisibility

Here is a simple lisp routine that lets you select the individual attribute to make it “invisible.”

Here’s how:

  • INVIS <enter> to start
  • Select the attributes that you would like to be invisible
  • <enter> when finished

(defun c:invis (/ ent obj)

  (while (setq ent (car (nentsel "\nSelect Attribute: ")))
    (if (eq "ATTRIB" (cdr (assoc 0 (entget ent))))
      (vlax-put (setq obj (vlax-ename->vla-object ent)) 'invisible -1)))
