Custom Entites in .NET

Could anyone please tell me just how am I supposed to derive the Entity class in .NET ??? Believe me, I'm barely suppressing the urge to use profanities and write in caps, so please help.. It seems that it's been much more simple in C++. One other thing, is there a way to just draw something temporarily over the document window, without actually adding entities to the database?

Thanks,

As far as I know you can't create custom objects in .NET

I came across an interview given by Albert Szilvazsy (I apologize in advance for the possible misspell), where he was asked the same question and the answer was no, basically, but he offered some useful points.. Try google-ing "ObjectARX & Dummies" (it's a book title) and dig some more, I don't have the exact URL here..

to the best of my knowledge, there is no book entitled "ObjectARX for
Dummies".

You should be able to create the custom object in (managed) C++ and then
call into managed code (C#/VB.NET/MC++) to do most of the real work. I
recall someone mentioning just such a sample floating around someplace...
