Autocad and VB.Net (newbie)

Everything is bad at the begining of work!
I need to code an application to read DWG files and then give the users
the ability for zooming and panning.
I did lots of searches over the net using different keywords, but couldn't
find something usable.
here is an API written by VB 6, is there something similar for VB.Net ?

Would you help me?

Thanks


PS- I found another article here:
http://management.cadalyst.com/cadman/article/articleDetail.jsp?id=164772

but when I try to run the sample, in this line I get a syntax error:
acadApp.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Editor.WriteMessage( _
vbNewLine & "Hello World!" & vbNewLine)

Here is the Error:
'Editor' is not a member of 'Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Document'

Hi,
If I remember correctly, there is no Editor class available in AutoCAD 2005 API. That sample might have been written for AutoCAD 2006. Use CommandLinePrompts class to write message to out put window in 2005.
