Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting a user-specified point, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] As we get into this chapter,…this entire chapter's focused…on the editor input name space.…We already started using this name space…as we work with the editor and we added this of course…as one of the imports.…But what we're going to really focus in on in this chapter…is how we interact with the user from the editor…and how we can get information whether it's points,…whether it's strings or texts or distances,…or whether it's objects.…
One object or multiple objects.…So let's go ahead and start with our first exercise.…How we get a specific user specified point.…We're going to open up our project.…It's of course in our exercise folder under chapter six,…and 06-01, and we'll open up that solution.…In our solution explorer, in our initialization class,…we open that up and you see…there's a command already getting started here.…We have gotten the editor for the drawing already.…
And so what we're going to do…is we're going to create a new variable…that will take advantage of the ability to get point.…
