Re: Periscope in .NET

07-21-2006 08:39 AM in reply to: wesbird
There are two seperate questions here... First, there was a question about the PointMonitor in general... I responded with a second question about implementing the PointMonitor in ACAD2005, since it seems like the upgrade will probably take a little while here.

On a side note (although somewhat related), the .NET wrapper for the pointmanager should be basically the same between 2005 and 2006... Is the wrapper open source or would it be possible to recompile only the PointMonitor portion for 2005?

After looking at the 2005 managed API, yes you're
right.

I didn't think you could monitor the cursor in 05
with managed ARX? Or did I misunderstand what
he was looking for all together.

The only option for tooltips ?

Paul's correct. There is no PointMonitor class in 2005's API.

No, you can't recompile it because there is no source
and it isn't nearly that simple (lot of dependence on
other APIs that are not in 2005 either).

I've said this before and I'll say it again. If you're serious
about .NET development, you need to upgrade to 2006.
Otherwise, you're not going to find much sympathy here
on how to get the benefits of the latter without ugrading.

At this juncture, with having done relatively little
work with the 2005 API, it's hard to remember what
is and is not there :-)

Pointing you to this sample was meant to
highlight '
title="AcEdInputPointMonitor Class">AcEdInputPointMonitor'.
The


title="AcEdInputPointMonitor Class">tooltip part is just a
bonus.

There is a sample in

Is there an alternative class for AutoCAD 2005?
Unfortunately, many of the
event classes such as PointMonitor do not
exist....
