I am doing a customization project in AutoCAD 2012 using C#.net.
My objective is to extract BOM table from an AutoCAD drawing using c# programming.
I am trying to create a custom menu in AutoCAD which will have the export BOM functionality.
Since I am new to C# programming I am finding it difficult to form the code.
Any sort of help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The data extraction tool does not export my BOM table.
I am attaching a sample drawing with a BOM table on it.
The task that export function does when right clicking on any table, i have to do that with the help of C# code.
My objective is to create a new custom menu in any toolbar of AutoCAD and link the export functionality to that menu.
Exactly the function which _TABLEEXPORT does, i have to do that with the help of a custom menu or by creating a custom action in the quick access toolbar. after creating the action i have to link the _TABLEEXPORT functionality to that custom action.
can anybody help me with the code to create such a custom menu or custom action?
I understand what you are telling is also a way to fulfill my objective.
But I was looking for a way other than customizing it through UI.
Can you explain me further the steps to save my new custom menu as a partial menu and load it when needed.
I have created a new menu and also loaded it with the _TABLEEXPORT command,
but each time I am opening AutoCAD it is showing the menu.
If it is possible to change it to a partial menu and load it as and when required please suggest the way for it.
You can do it many ways.
