Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the DocumentCollection, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] One of the objects within…the application object that we find…in the application service's namespace…is the document collection,…and this is how we work with the drawings.…And so let's see what we find…within the document collection.…We're going to open up our exercise project here…under our desktop, exercise, Chapter Four,…and this is the 04-02 exercise project…that we're going to open up.…And if I go to my Solution Explorer,…what we're going to do, we're going to create a new command.…
And this command, collapse all…the other commands we've created.…And this command is actually going to allow us…to kind of read back to the user…and tell the user and tell us, really,…how many documents or drawings are currently open.…So as we've gotten a lot of practice so far,…we're going to create a new command method,…and we're going to name this command LIDocCount…and just step outside the attribute brackets there,…less than greater than brackets,…and create a new subroutine,…and we're going to call this cmdDocCount.…
