I would like help in creating a VB.NET toolbar in AutoCAD map 3D 2011. I assume it would be close to creating a Ribbon but i have an no luck. one way I did it but does not seem to work is by this code below
'' Create toolbar Dim groups As Object = Application.MenuGroups Dim group As Object = groups.item(0) Dim toolbars As Object = group.Toolbars Dim toolbar As Object = toolbars.add("Field Engineering ToolBar")
'' Directory of bitmap images Dim dir As String = "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2011\FEimages"
'' New Map Button Dim mapBtn As Object = toolbar.AddToolbarButton(0, "Make Map Button", "Helpstring button", "MAKEMAP ", False) mapBtn.SetBitmaps(dir & "\Map_bmp.BMP", dir & "\Map_bmp.BMP")
this only seemed to work in visual stuido 2010 but then on deployment it failed, i assume I'm doing this wrong.
The goal is to build a toolbar that can be used in "map classic workspace" as I have older autocad users that like this view over the ribbon.
