AutoCAD MAP end of loading AEC modules

Hello,

AutoCAD MAP loads a some AEC modules when initialising.

I want to send my .NET Init message to the commandline after these AEC loading prompts

I tried waiting for Application.Idle(QuiescentState) without any luck.

Timing operations at startup is always tricky. You could try P/Invokignads_queueexpr (see example here - http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/through_the_interface/2006/08/calling_command.html). You could also user a timer to delay your message, although I'm not so keen on doing that.

 

But consider the 'arms race' that ensues when you and another add-in both want to send your init messages last - i.e. there's really no way AutoCAD can ensure any single addin gets to report itself last.

Hello Stephen,
Thank you for this tip.
This and other reasons convince me to leafe the CommandLine for my output and use Panels to write the output to.

Thanks,
Anton
