Q - question

How to check if a dimension is associative or not? (LISP)

A - answer Using the following LISP function you can verify whether the given dimension entity is associative or disassociated. The function returns nil or the number of the associative point.

; returns nil or assoc point number (1, 2, 3=both)
(defun isDimAssoc? (diment / elst dict)
  (setq elst (entget diment))
  (setq dict (cdr (assoc 360 elst)))
  (setq elst (entget dict))
  (setq elst (entget (cdr (assoc 360 elst))))
 (cdr (assoc 90 elst))

Use this function e.g. this way:

(isdimassoc? (car (entsel "\nPick the dimension to check associativity: ")))
