download the ObjectARX-kit (>>>from here<<<), there are a lot of dot-net samples using draw-functions and also crreating polylines.

At least a rectangle is a polyline, nothing more.

As you may know, this is not a language-learning forum (except for obcure methods or structs).

Instead, we ask from other people the logic of how to do something with the AutoCAD object model.

If your question was: How to draw a rectangle?

The answer would be simple: Draw a polyline with four segments in the shape of a rectangle and then set the .Closed boolean property of the polyline to true.

That is exactly what AutoCAD does when you use the command RECTANG;


If your question is: How to draw a polyline? It should be already answered in other threads.


If you have trouble getting YOUR code to work, come back  here, post your code and explain the desired behavior.


P.S. Hold on, did he just say AutoCAD Electrical? Does it use the same API as AutoCAD?
