Run a Command, a .scr or a .lisp from dynamo

I am working on a dynamo routine to convert a survey drawing to our standards. I got the layer translation all set but i still need to do more cleanup like make all the objects to be by layer and set all the text to be an specific style. Is there a way to run a command within dynamo, a script (.scr) or a lisp?

You can use Python to open a file. I am not at work at the moment, but if you can’t find anything (tomorrow)i could write you something.

Thank you Daan i appreciate it. I just don’t see were to start because i am not familiar at all with python.

This is an example you can use to set all the Text and MText to the same style

import sys
path = r’C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\Lib’
sys.path.append(path)

import os

def playSomething(path):
from os import startfile
startfile(path)

OUT = playSomething(IN[0])

I hope you can use this script, this will be able to run almost anything.

Thank you Paolo, the script works very well.

Thank you Dann, i will give it a shot.
