Events / Re: EventHandler for Entity Selection
« Last post by BlackBox on April 09, 2013, 09:18:35 PM »
I´m trying to get all entites (ids...) which are currently selected for displaying xdatas
in a palette.
If I select for example lines I want the ObjectIds saved in a Collection or array. If I unselect
the Entity/ies I want to remove the Id from the Collection.
If I run a command or something else, the Entites will be unselected too, but with the Method
ed.SelectionRemoved the entite Ids wont be removed / the event isnt fired.

And I dont want to run a command, this should be "interactive" like the autocad property palette...

This is an older thread, so not sure if you already got it sorted, but you might consider the Document.ImpliedSelectionChanged Event.

3D entities / Deployment - VB.Net Express 2008
« Last post by NirantarVidyarthee on April 02, 2013, 08:40:44 PM »
I have developed an Application using VB.Net Express 2008.

But I can't create a setup for this application. I use the publish command as suggested by Microsift. I am able to create a setup.exe but when I dblclick it it starts the application itself instead of asking where to install the application and then ends with an error.

Can any body please guide me the correct way to create the setup?

I can provide more information if you need.
3D entities / AutoCAD 2011 & Express 2008
« Last post by NirantarVidyarthee on April 02, 2013, 08:36:34 PM »
I have developed an pit-of-process Application using VB.Net Express 2008 and AutoCAD 2011. (These are User requirements and hence can't be changed).

The application developed runs on the development computer without any problem. But it does not run on the working computer. Details are as below:

Development PC is a single user stand-alone PC while working PC is a corporate network node. Operating systems, AutoCAD versions and system variables on both PCs match.

The application runs on development PC without any problems. However, on the working node it runs only through administrative access (login) but not with the user login.

Can any body please suggest me what needs to be done so that the program runs with user access (not Admin).

I can provide more details if you need.

Blocks / Numbering multileader with user block content
« Last post by fixo on March 24, 2013, 10:38:52 PM »
In this code used multileader with attributed block "Callout Bubble - Imperial",
after this block is inserted, then deleted, we can create multileader with block "_DetailCallout".
Then we can to number multileader this way:
Code: [Select]
        public static void MleaderBlockNumbering()
