Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting a user-selected entity, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] As we continue looking at how to interact…with the user, so far what we've done…is get information from the user by picks…or points or information entered at the command line…but a lot of times we want the user…to tell us which object that we're going to interact with,…what object they want edited or information about…and so, that's what we're going to do in this exercise.…We're going to look at how we can select an entity…and then of course we'll feed information back…to the user based upon the entity…that was selected.…
So, let's go ahead and open up our exercise project.…This is going to be 06-03…and of course the 06-03 solution…is what we'll open up…and we'll go into the 06-03 project…and the initialization class…and we already have a command that's been started for us,…the LISelectEntity.…Now, there's a lot already written here.…Let's kind of just briefly break down what we have.…We have the editor object…from the current drawing assigned to the ED variable…but we also have pretty much what we learned…
