Dear All,

Please kindly review my code. Within this code, the program first asks the user that, how many layouts he wants. Then create them and make them empty. then execute the "Mview" command to ask the user for the first view selection but after this time the program will be ended and don't ask the user for the selection of the other view to another layout.

Private Sub Create_Empty_layout()

Dim currentLayout As AcadLayout
Dim LayoutName As String
Dim NumberofLayouts As Integer, NumberofRequired As Integer, Count As Integer
Dim I As Integer

ThisDrawing.ActiveSpace = acPaperSpace

NumberofRequired = UserForm1.TextBox1.Text

'Delete all current layout except "Model" layout

For Each currentLayout In ThisDrawing.Layouts

LayoutName = currentLayout.Name

If LayoutName <> "Model" Then currentLayout.Delete


'No need to create layout1 beacuse its atomatically created after deleting all layouts
'Just delete the content

ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout = ThisDrawing.Layouts("Layout1")

For Each objAcadObject In ThisDrawing.PaperSpace

If TypeName(objAcadObject) = "IAcadPViewport" Then objAcadObject.Delete


'Now we have to create from layout2 up to number of required ones
'Just delete the content

For Count = 2 To NumberofRequired

ThisDrawing.Layouts.Add ("Layout" & Count)

ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout = ThisDrawing.Layouts("Layout" & Count)

For Each objAcadObject In ThisDrawing.PaperSpace

If TypeName(objAcadObject) = "IAcadPViewport" Then objAcadObject.Delete




For I = 1 To NumberofRequired

ThisDrawing.ActiveLayout = ThisDrawing.Layouts("Layout" & I)

With ThisDrawing.Utility

.InitializeUserInput 0, "Mview Cancel"

ThisDrawing.SendCommand "_Mview _New" & vbCr

End With

Next I

End Sub
