(tblnext table-name [flag])

Get me the next item in the table.

This function finds the first (or next, depending on the flag) instance of a symbol type in the drawing table. The argument table-name represents the name of symbol type to search for. Valid table-names are:

Table-name Meaning
"appid" Application identification.
"block" Block names.
"dimstyle" Dimension style names.
"layer" Layer names.
"ltype" Linetype names.
"style" Text style names.
"ucs" UCS names.
"view" View names.
"vport" Viewport names.

First, the tblnext function returns the first specified symbol in the table. When the symbol is found, it is returned as a list of dotted pairs. Used repeatedly, the next symbol is returned in order. When no more symbols exist in the list, nil is returned.

When the flag argument is supplied (typically as T), the search begins from the top of the table.
