Controls the display order of overlapping objects through a list of layer names in a LST file.
Accessing the Command
command bar: draworderbylayer
Displays a dialog box:
Choose a *.lst layer list file, and then click Open.
The *.lst file is an ASCII text file that you (or someone else) wrote with a text editor, such as Notepad, and holds a list of layer names, one per line, such as
The command displays entities on layers in the order defined by the *.lst file. The display order is the reverse of the draw order: first the entities on layer LayerName1 are drawn, then the entities on LayerName2 are drawn on top of the first ones, and so on. The entities on LayerNameN end up on top.
Wildcard characters are supported in layer names. All entities on layers that match the selection criteria are drawn at the same display level. Caution: A specific filter preceded by a general filter does nothing, such as filter at* listed after filter a* has no effect because all entities on layers starting with 'a' are already drawn. But filter a* listed after at* first draws all entities on layers starting with 'at', and then all entities on the remaining layers starting with 'a'.
Opens the *.lst file.
