Samples and Documentation:
Because AutoCAD® Architecture is based on AutoCAD®; you can take advantage of all the AutoCAD® source code samples for .NET that are included with the installation of AutoCAD® Architecture software in the Samples directory.
Along with the AutoCAD-focused ObjectARX® (C++) code samples that are part of the ObjectARX® Software Developers Kit, you will also find AutoCAD® Architecture–specific source code samples in the OMF.
The extensive application development documentation built into the AutoCAD® Architecture help system includes the following topics:
- Customization Guide
- AutoCAD Architecture .NET
The ObjectARX Developers Guide and Reference Manual are provided as Windows help files in the ObjectARX Software Developer Kit. Included in the OMF is a class reference file to help in your application development.
Since 2007, AutoCAD® Architecture's .NET interface has been expanded with many classes previously only supported through OMF and C++ now accessible to all .NET supporting languages. Now VB and C# developers can access most of the power of OMF. Customize and extend AutoCAD® Architecture with direct access to most of AutoCAD® Architecture database structures using any .NET supporting language. Get the power of OMF with the ease of use of Microsoft Visual Basic® (VB). Learn more about AutoCAD® Architecture .NET implementation upon installation in the help file with samples in the VB.NET and CS.NET folders in the AutoCAD® Architecture program directory.
