Now in an all-new second edition, Using Visual Basic with AutoCAD continues to encourage readers to explore the customization power they can unleash using Visual Basic to automate AutoCAD 2000. Over 500 pages - featuring a wealth of step-by-step examples presented in the book and on the companion CD-ROM - offer expert instruction in using both Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and stand-alone Visual Basic (VB). Ideal for programmers of all abilities;, from the novice through the expert, Using Visual Basic with AutoCAD provides unparalleled coverage of topics ranging from simple customization of AutoCAD commands, to building impressive stand-alone applications, through debugging programs. Part of the popular Programmer's Reference Series from Autodesk Press, Using Visual Basic with AutoCAD begins by familiarizing readers with Visual Basic environment and then delves immediately into creating and modifying objects as well as extracting data from drawings.
Subsequent chapters illustrate how to create and distribute real-world applications; how to communicate with other applications using dynamic data exchange (DDE) and object linking and embedding (OLE); how to exchange AutoCAD data with popular spreadsheet, word-processing and database applications; and how to debug programs. (Note: While prior knowledge of AutoCAD is assumed, no previous Visual Basic experience is required to use this book successfully) Keywords: Visual Basic
