This instructional demonstration is an introduction for AutoCAD.NET API software developers to learn how to extend the managed ObjectARX libraries to use hidden functionality. Although the standard AutoCAD .NET managed libraries provide extensive support, there is some functionality that is not wrapped into the managed libraries. In this instructional demonstration we will discuss ways to find that hidden functionality in AutoCAD software files and ObjectARX libraries. The instructional demonstration will then show how to make that functionality available to managed .NET applications. The instructional demonstration will provide sample code that you can modify and use in your applications.
- Learn how to extend the AutoCAD .NET managed capability
- Discover exported functions in AutoCAD files that can be imported to managed code
- Learn how to get the structure of the exported functions and import them into managed code
