Am trying to extract data out of AutoCAD Specific drawing at a particular date and time. And this project am doing from quite long time. But the problem is how can i specify time and date to autocad and at that particular time it has to extract data. My current code is in VB.net where i am manually specifying the file, yet its taking the autocad template as its source
Dim Files() As String
Dim Path As String = "D:\Cad Drawings" Dim DiffClass As New Class1 Dim acDocMgr As DocumentCollection = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager
Dim CurrentFileCount As Integer = 0
Files = Directory.GetFiles(Path, "*.dwg", SearchOption.AllDirectories) For i As Integer = 0 To Files.Length - 1 Dim CurrentFile As String = Files(i) If CurrentFile.Contains("Drawing") Or CurrentFile.Contains("DWG") Then If CurrentFile.Substring(CurrentFile.LastIndexOf(".") + 1) = "dwg" Then
Till here i do operation and at certain time i open dwg and extract data.
May be you can add a trigger on some of the save database events (BeginSave or SaveComplete), and set the autosave to a given period, but this need another monitor on the Autosave variable (SAVETIME) in order to avoid user changes.
