So I decided to try programming for ACAD on .NET and I have MS VS 2010 installed and ObjectARX 2009 downloadded and unzipped. So what's next. What shoud I do to start programming?
As I understand I need ObjectARX to use AutoCAD .NET API's, and to be able to use "using System.Autodesk..." library. Am I right?
Since you have downloaded ObjectARX2009 I am going to guess that you are working in AutoCAD 2009, but what type of application are you wanting to start with? If you are looking to start with an add-in than look at this http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=1816
I would also look at doing some searching on this blog http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/, most of the code is in C# but can be converted here http://www.developerfusion.com/tools/convert/cshar

... or you could just use c#
Everything will work just as you expect it to, unless your expectations are incorrect.

Thanx for the suggestions. Generally I don't know what exactly I want to get from my programmng but it would be something that will control pagesetup ofthe drawing. So I need to learn a lil bit about it. And fortunately I prefer C# and not VB.
So seems like I found what I need! Just downloaded .NET Wizard and now I can create AutoCADplugin in my VS 2010 and there I can define System.Autodesk.... etc. Thanks!
