Thank you for your question.

 

You can use ADR API IAdComparator to implement this functionality programatically. Please refer to API documentation for more information.

 

Any further questions please let me know.

I have another question.

Suppose I have 50 sheets, and different sheet is the last one.

In each comparison, if there is nothing different, the API will pop-up message window.

And the user must click the message before the next sheet to compare.

Is there any way to resolve this situation?

Thank you for your question.

 

IAdComparator currently does not support to suppress this dialog. I've logged your request into our WISHLIST database and it will be considered for possible inclusion in future releases.

Guys, 

 

It is 2013 now and imaging how long it takes to compare 40 sheets (20 to 40 minutes).

"You can use ADR API - IAdComparator to implement this functionality programmatically." is not an option if you have some design to do. 

 

I am wondering if Autodesk employee or executives ever monitor the performance and the feedback on the software they make. 

For instance: Drawing TABs were available by some programmers since 2009, it took 4 years for Autodesk to add that function... 4 years to follow up is VERY LONG time.

 

Can you please pass on or let us know if there is any option for MULTI-SHEET COMPARISON available or plans to be added to ADR in the near future?

Thanks for and advise on ADR API staff but there is no way to figure out how to do that, otherwise someone would post it here a long time ago.

I tried to use your advice and could not even understand where to start from after downloading all staff that goes with API…

 

Regards,

 

Alex

I am sorry, pendean..

I understood your reference, but you did not answer the question though...

If ADR goes out of business then what is for multi-sheet comparison at this time.

What is going out to substitute ADR by Autodesk anyways, if you know of course.

 

Regards,

Alex
