VB.NET + COM GetEntity gives type mismatch

The following code keeps throwing a type mismatch on the GetEntity line

What am i doing wrong?

 

Dim obj As Object = Nothing

Try
    Dim pnt As Object = Nothing
    doc.Utility.GetEntity(obj, pnt, "test")
Catch ex As Exception
    Return False
End Try

The following code as well:

Dim obj as Object = Nothing
Try Dim pnt As Object = Nothing doc.Utility.GetEntity(obj) Catch ex As Exception Return False End Try

 

When i give no parameters i get an error that the number of parameters is not correct. That's fine, but that would imply

- that there is an overload accepting 1 parameter

- that the 'obj' parameter is of the wrong type

Dim obj As Object = Nothing
Dim pnt(2) As Object
Try
    doc.Utility.GetEntity(obj, pnt, "test")
Catch ex As Exception
    Return False
End Try

unfortunately no :smileyhappy:

 

I'm running a thread in another forum as well and it seems that autocad not being the top window at the time seems to have an effect on this issue

Sorry. What about:

Dim pnt(2) As Double

 ?

yes i tried that, but it didn't work

 

and about bringing autocad to the front: wrong track. I built in a 500ms delay and the call rejected error disappears and the original error reappears

I gave up and used early binding instead. That worked

No,

 

i was referencing some findings in the other thread which at first glance seemed to have relevance.

 

i didn't want to cross post, but the gentleman in the other thread recommended this group so i posted here, but since he kept helping i didn't want to abandon that thread
