Discover how to work with the AutoCAD .NET application program interface (API) and the Visual Basic .NET programming language to create a working plugin.
- [Josh] Hi, I'm Josh Modglin and welcome to Introduction to Creation of AutoCAD Plug-ins using Visual Basic.NET. Your desire to watch this course means you are ready to take on creating your integrated application plug-ins into AutoCAD or any of its verticals using the .NET AutoCAD API. Now we're going to build on this knowledge to show how easy it is to build a connected library of functions within AutoCAD using Visual Basic.NET.
Now finally we will build a working command which will incorporate a graphic user interface like a form or a dialogue. A custom built commands, user selection and a modification of AutoCAD objects. If you're unfamiliar with programming in AutoCAD I encourage you to watch Learning AutoLISP and Visual LISP and AutoCAD customization for CAD managers. Now let's jump into the wonderful world of programming using Visual Basic.NET and the .NET AutoCAD API.
