Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using input keywords, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] Usually when we're working with…getting information from the user,…we could be providing them with a lot of different options.…It's not just getting a selection set.…It's not just getting a distance.…Maybe they want to give us more information…or maybe they want to adjust from…and getting just a line to getting an arc…or something similar to that.…And that's where keywords come in to play.…Every single one of the get user input type functions…we've worked with so far,…which is a you know,…getting the point,…getting a distance,…getting an entity even a selection set,…all of them have built in the ability to add keywords.…
So in this exercise,…we're going to see how we can add keywords to an existing…get user input type function that we've looked at,…which is the get distance.…But there is actually a separate get keyword function…and you could just get the string as result.…So if you just want to ask the user something and…have them tell you something back…from our list of options you can do that as well.…
