I'm fairly new to the AutoCAD API for .NET, and for the last month or so I've been googling about, looking for comprehensive documentation on the Autodesk API (their equivalent of man pages). I've yet to find anything that describes each method and class in the API, so I turn to these forums for help.
My goal is this: I'm trying to figure out how to copy the contents of all drawings in the same directory into a single dwg file. Has anyone done this before, and if so, what subsets of the AutoCAD API should I use to do so?
I'm not asking someone to write this for me, only to point me in the right direction.
On a sidenote, If anyone has knowledge of where to find complete documentation for the API, I'd appreciate it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I guess >>>that blog<<< contains the information (and most of the code) you look for
>> where to find complete documentation for the API
The most complete documentation you'll find by downloading the ObjectARX-kit (from >>>here<<<, free, but to register). If it's just dotNET API (without a little left or right) you find it >>>here<<<. That is for 2010 (so ok for start), I haven't found an online-docu for 2013 yet.

In addition that Alfred said I want to add this highly useful link to the blog: http://adndevblog.typepad.com/autocad
i refer to the exchange quite a bit! it has great explanations of the api. it really helped me wrap my head around the use of the transaction manager and opening and closing objects.

thanx for the link!
@Autodesk: also here the table of contents is missing and I think a wish from everyone using it!
