API for DWG TrueView

Hi,

Can I use any API to control DWG TrueView? I read that the API has been disabled, is this still correct?

The following is a quote from Scott Sheppard:

"No. Autodesk DWG TrueView (and the DWG viewer that ships with Autodesk DWF
Composer) is not supported for automation. "
(http://discussion.autodesk.com/thread.jspa?threadID=399590)




What I want to do is automate the publish process from DWG files to DWF files. (It needs to run as a batch job without any UI interaction)

Thanks in advance!

The official Autodesk position is that DWG TrueView has not been designed
nor tested for use as an ActiveX Control; however, based on its
architecture, some things just happen to work. I got this sample from a
fellow employee:

https://projectpoint.buzzsaw.com/ConstructionManagement/public/testDWG.htm?public

So you are free to look at it as a sample. If it does not work perfectly for
you, please don't expect quick resolutions from Autodesk. This is provided
on an as-is basis - much like the only house I ever purchased in California.

Attached is a JavaScript app written by some of our developers to use the APIs for DWG TrueView.

I had the wrong version of the file on my site. It has been corrected.

https://projectpoint.buzzsaw.com/ConstructionManagement/public/testDWG.htm?public

This is the file that I got from one of the developers.

Hi,
I am setting a website to support user-uploaded models and design files. one of the formats to be supported is DWG. however I can't get any API for that. can you share your API with me? or provide some guideline?

my email is michael.deng@scalepage.com

Thanks a lot.

While you are waiting this nearly seven year old thread likely will not get any response from the previous parties.

You may want to post a new thread with your query if you do not get a response in a week or so.

Though that does not guarantee a satisfactory response either.

 

And some additional Google hits on your query:
