The following statement in the Hello World! example generates errors:

MessageBox.Show(Autodesk.Navisworks.Api.Application.Gui.MainWindow, “Hello World”);


The following statement works fine:

MessageBox.Show("Hello World!")




Thank you in advance for your patience in answering what must be a basic namespace? related question. Warm regards from Los Angeles,

I gave a small test with <2013>\api\net\examples\Basic Examples\CSharp\BasicPlugIn. It works well to me. I can run the command and the dialog popped out without any error.


Do you have any more information,. e.g. error message snapshot? It would be helpful for the peers in forum to offer a hand.
