Re: How a DWG is opened

If you only want to run some code once on each drawing, you can hook up DoucmentActivated or DocumentBecameCurrent event when your IExtesionApplication assenbly is loaded on AutoCAD startup. Then, I'd use Document.UserData to flag it. Something like:


void DocumentBecameCurrent (....)


    bool processd=false;







    if (!processed)



        e.Document.SendStringToExecute("MyCustomCommand "....)
