Ruby Scripting in Chief Architect

Recommended Posts

I'm new here so maybe this is already covered in some place I am missing. Can someone versed in Ruby offer some guidance to information, books, videos, etc. where I could learn more about Ruby and how it is used within Chief Architect? I'm coming from an older version of AutoCAD ADT and have programmed extensively with AutoLISP. I would think these have similarities, but also would like to know if there is a command line, or how does Ruby communicate with keystrokes/mouse to call a command/script? Thank you

Welcome aboard. First your post really belongs in Q & A.

Ruby in Chief can't access mouse or keyboard. It is primarily for accessing information from objects and outputting as text. Still very useful.

Best place to start is in the help and the tutorial on the Ruby console built into Chief. A forum search couldn't hurt.

Thank you Mark for the info. I am excited about researching more about and using Ruby to update text related things, but still finding other ways, perhaps a macro recorder to do other things. Thank you!
