The get_tag function allows retrieval of tag names from the current drawing.




bos_name is the name of a block, object or symbol in the current drawing. count is the index number of a tag in bos_name , from 1 to the number of tags. buf is the address of a character buffer that is to receive the tag name.



Return Value

get_tag copies the tag name into buf and returns 1 if the BOS specified by bos_name is found, and there are at least count tags attached to the BOS; otherwise, 0 is returned, and no copy is performed.




fetch_tag may be used to retrieve the information associated with a particular tag.
