hello, I was wondering if there are tools available currently to allow a programmer to go about editing the way AutoCad is used.
What I want to achieve is the following.
When a block is placed into a drawing, a function is run to access a database that stores information on how many said blocks appear in the drawing.
this is just the beginning, but I was wondering if there application extensions that I can use to program the necessary code to achieve this. I've heard of ObjectABX, however, i don't think this program has the ability to do what I want.
Any input or direction on this matter would be greatly appriciated.
There are certainly a variety of tools to do what you want to achieve. Object ARX will definately do it but it is complex and requires a knowledge of c++. If you are a beginner then you should probably try out the .net programming languages. You can get started from the link below.
