Code highlighting is desactivated for the time being.

Kean Walmsley has started the first topic on his blog.

If unwanted characters are introduced in the code, we will not keep this functionnality.

IMO, there's no need for this kind of gadget which often provides more inconvenients than advantages.
I'd rather post/read non colorized full and right code than colorized one with syntax errors and/or restrictions.
Every one here is able to copy and paste a piece of code in its favorite code editor...

The purpose of syntax highlighter is to facilitate reading the same way code is usualy colorized in code editors like Visual Studio.
Colorisation does not change the code.
Sure we can copy/paste code in our code editor to display syntax highlighting but many people come here not to work with the code but simply to learn from it and having to copy it in a code editor solely for that purpose is cumbersome.
I don't think code colorisation is a gadget when I see all major code editors having this functionnality by default.

Now this is the theory.

As I said in my first message, I am testing this functionnality and it does not work very well specialy with VB code.
I am investigating why.
If I don't find a quick solution, I will disable the functionnality; in the mean time, please answer the poll on this thread about the opportunity to have *working* syntax highlighting on this site.

I am testing code highlighting on this site, looks like C++ code is rendered quite well, this is not the case for VB. I am using Google Prettify API. If you can help for VB to be rendered better, please reply here, thanks!  :sourire:

When posting code, use the "code" BBC icon to enclose your code and please do not post the XML help code for VB NET (the one with three single quotes), because it messes up the syntax highlighter.

AutoCAD talk / Matrix multiplication

Kean Walmsley (@keanw) wonders if talking about Matrix Multiplication and covering such mathematical topics on his blog would be of any interest to you. What do you think?

AutoCAD talk / QR Codes for AutoCAD from Autodesk Labs
« on: December 08, 2010, 02:01:52 PM »
This plugin can be used embed QR Codes in AutoCAD drawings. QR Codes are 2-dimensional bar codes that can be used to encode various types of data. One likely use of this tool would be to encode data into drawings' title sheets for later decoding via a mobile device at the job site.

C# language / Advanced Deepclone API in AutoCADĀ®
« on: December 07, 2010, 11:01:52 AM »
Learn how to customize and control AutoCAD using the deepclone API. In-depth, step-by-step instructions to understand the particular design philosophy of AutoCAD will give audiences a better understanding of what's going on under the hood. Explore the principles of object references in the AutoCAD DWG file and how AutoCAD works with them. Many scenarios will be reviewed during this lecture including xref and xref in-place editing.

Lisp is where the novice programmer/customiser can make great gains. To disregard Lisp (as an AutoCAD user) is questionable in my opinion.

"Not particularly in favor of" does not mean "against".  :clinoeil:

What do you mean by " a natural language interface" ?? And are you proposing "another" specialised limited usage language for us to learn ?

See this article and this one for the definition of a natural computer language.

I am not particularly in favor of LISP, sorry if I gave this impression. Let's say I found VB NET extremely verbose to achieve, in most cases, the same thing as we can do with one line of LISP... Sure there are things wich cannot be done with LISP and as I mention it in my article, I wish good luck to those who have to create complex dialog boxes with LISP, or with DCL rather. My reflexion was not intended to bring arguments in favor of a particular existing computer language for AutoCAD but more to open a reflexion about what if we tried to get closer to a very broadly spoken one, I mean the english language? My theory is that a natural language interface would be feasible, not in the vast computer domain, but in the narrow field of the AutoCAD object model.

In this class we will work through some practical examples of customizing AutoCAD entity behavior using the .NET Overrule API introduced in AutoCAD 2010. Coding examples will be presented in VB.NET, but the concepts demonstrated apply to all other .NET programming languages; by Stephen Preston. (source)

Visual Studio environment / Making Progress with the .NET API
« on: December 05, 2010, 01:10:57 AM »
Ever have one of those long operations in your program that leaves the user wondering if the application is responding? This class will show you real .NET code using the API to create and update the progress bar meter in AutoCADĀ®. We will focus on how to query the status of a long operation and translate it into percentage complete. You will see how you can update the status message and present users with a way to escape from long operations during processing, by Doug Goforth. (source)

Visual Studio environment / .NET Languages: Which One Do I Choose?
« on: December 05, 2010, 01:00:11 AM »
Developing powerful AutoCADĀ® add-ins in  .NET can be an enjoyable experience. But which language is the best to use? VB.NET? C#? And are there other .NET languages to choose from? In 60 minutes, we will examine the benefits of each .NET language and cover critical decision-making topics. A presentation by Jerry Winters. (source)
