Support for ExtendedData

Post by nthangaraj » 25 Apr 2018, 12:39

I wanted to know id CAD.NET support Extended Data for an Entity. If so please let me know how i can access it.

IvanCAD (http://www.ivancad.com/) has that functionality.

Code: Select all

 foreach (Ivan.DrawingEntity drawingEntity in objEntities)
            {
                if (drawingEntity.HasXData == true)
                {
                    try
                    {
                        objXData = drawingEntity.ExtendedData[REGISTEREDAPPNAME];
                    }
                    catch (Exception)
                    {
                        continue;
                    }
                                      ProcessLightweightPolyline((Ivan.LightweightPolyline)drawingEntity, objXData);
                }
            }

private void ProcessLightweightPolyline(Ivan.LightweightPolyline polyline, Ivan.RegAppExtendedData xdata)
        {
            string strXDataValue;                       
            //
            // extract the xdata
            //
            if (xdata.DataItems[0].DataType == STRINGTYPE)
            {
                strXDataValue = (string)xdata.DataItems[0].Value;
            }
            else
            {
                strXDataValue = "Error: wrong xdata data type";
            }

            m_objWriter.WriteLine("xdata: " + strXDataValue);
           
        }

Hello,

At the moment CAD .NET doesn't support Extended Data for an entity, this feature will be available in a new version of the library.
