Running Native AutoCAD Commands

Hey Everyone,

 

So this is something i've been wondering about for a while now but haven't had enough of an application to justify trying to figure it out. At this point however, i've designed a small conversion form that can be called by our engineers and allow them to convert between various units. I'd like to have a button though that allows them to call up the Quick Calc application from within AutoCAD. What i'm wondering is how do i actually call a native autoCAD command? Is it possible and if so where could i find documentation on the syntax. For what it's worth i'm working in C# in VS 2010.

 

As always any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

There are lots of topics on this, search this discussion group for "command" or "command line" or "commandline"
