Confused met to but the solution is simple.

This PlotStyleDialog can only be used in the so called Named Plot Style drawings.

So if you're dialog does not show its probably the Color Depended drawing type -- most drawings still are.


You need to create a STB style first, then convert the drawing.

Try this before running the program:








Command: NETLOAD



Command: psd



using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.IO;

using acadApp = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.Runtime;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.Geometry;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.PlottingServices;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.Windows;
using Autodesk.AutoCAD.Publishing;

namespace PlotStyleDialog
    public class Class1
        public void PlotStyleDlg()
            var psd = new PlotStyleDialog();
            DialogResult dlgRes=psd.ShowDialog();
