Help files or Oject Model

are there any help files or object models available for the .Net interface in Autocad 2006/2007, something along the lines of

++++++++++++++++++
Explodes the compound object into subentities.

See Also | Example

Signature

RetVal = object.Explode

Object

3DPolyline , BlockRef, ExternalReference, LightweightPolyline, MInsertBlock, Polygonmesh, Polyline, Region
The object or objects this method applies to.

RetVal

Variant (array of objects)
The array of exploded objects.

Remarks

Depending on the type of compound object you're exploding, different results occur. Refer to the EXPLODE command topic in the AutoCAD Command Reference for a detailed list of explodable objects and their results.

You do not have to explode a block in order to manipulate its constituent entities. All block definitions have an Item method that allow you to manipulate the entities within the block without exploding the block definition itself.
+++++++++++++++++

Which is from theAutocad Active x guide (acadauto.chm) or

+++++++++++++++
Description
Creates a new folder in the Vault.


Required permission: FolderCreate


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Syntax
Folder AddFolder (
String name,
Long parentId,
Boolean isLibrary
);


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parameters
name
The name of the new folder.


parentId
The ID of the parent folder.


isLibrary
Is the folder a library. Libraries can only be created under the root folder.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Returns
A Folder object representing the newly created folder.
+++++++++++++++++++

which is from the VaultAPI.chm file. You can browse the classes in the VS interface but this isnt really enough for an inexperienced programmer (like me)

Try as I might and noting I did not spend all night reading and trying
"theswamp" while trying to install and access this documentation also noting
I've run the msi to comply with comments from theswamp yet can't seem to see
any of the documentation using the help system that comes with Visual Studio
which I add I absolutely consider to be garbage. Any help here trying to
figure out what seems to be a convoluted process?

This is the part of the post that got it to work for me.
>>>In any browser (for example: Internet Explorer) type: ms-help://MS.VSCC.v80/dv_vscccommon/local/CollectionManager.htm
Select ObjectARX Reference For .NET and Update VSCC

Note this help doesn't actually provide any more info than the object browser.

Just the Object Browser? For real that's all that can be seen? So its not
really a collection of help files in any sense comparable to an MSDN help
entry?

Thats Not quite right.
I have got this to work and once you are in VS and searchng the help it is excatly the same as other MSDN type docuemntation. The only thing I can see that would be nice is code snippets with the help docs. Otherwise it is pretty complete

// I loaded this in IE6...
ms-help://MS.VSCC.v80/dv_vscccommon/local/CollectionManager.htm
Select ObjectARX Reference For .NET and Update VSCC

// IE6 gives me a warning about not allowing active content but I observe
the Update VSCC button is active. I select CTRL to dispel the active content
warning and Allow Blocked Content. The page is refreshed and the VSCC button
is greyed out but there's a series of checkboxes some of which are checked
one of which is ObjectARX Reference For .NET.

So I submit a search looking for ObjectARX calling search from Visual
Studio. > Help > Search which loads, spins it wheels searching Local and
then tells me nothing is found.

My Visual Studio Help must be busted. Searching locally with a term such as
HtmlServerEncode class does not even return results when searching locally.
