Post by dmvcad » 29 Aug 2014, 00:58

I am reviewing the component CADControl but I dont know how read the entities of a DWG drawing. I need that when I select each entity shows me your attributes, for example: text,name,handle.

Hello,

DrawController.GetSelectedEntityInfo() method returns attributes of the selected entity: handle, name, text as the DrawController.EntityInfo structure. This method has the following parameters:

id - the drawing ID,
x - X-coordinate of the screen point,
y - Y-coordinate of the screen point.

The drawing ID is stored in the DrawingState.Id field.

Hi,

Ok, thanks for your information. Can you give me an example with the method DrawController.GetSelectedEntityInfo() ?
Is there any documentation of methods for the CADControl?

Hello,

See the demo projects in the \Selection\Demo.VS20xx folders as an example. There is no detailed description of the CADControl API because it will be developed further. API Reference for CADControl will be available in the future.

Hello,

DrawController.GetSelectedEntityInfo() method is not invoked directly in the demo projects.
