9780130652010: VBA for AutoCAD 2002: Writing AutoCAD Macros: With Applications

AutoCAD 2002 isn't just the world's #1 design and drafting tool: it's a powerful, programmable platform for automating complex design tasks, integrating design data with enterprise information systems, and solving a wide range of technical and business problems. The key to all that power is VBA scripting -- and the key to VBA scripting is AutoCAD 2002 VBA User Handbook. This book ties together AutoCAD's key tools and VBA's capabilities as never before, showing how AutoCAD and VBA work together in the real world -- and helping professionals create real-world applications more rapidly than they ever thought possible. Jeffrey E. Clark begins with a tour of AutoCAD's Interactive Development Environment, then helps AutoCAD professionals master the fundamentals of Automation, COM, and object-oriented programming. Go "under the hood" with the DXF format to understand the structure of AutoCAD's drawing database; master the AutoCAD object model, and discover how to automate 2D and 3D graphic objects, external references, entities, modeled solids, dimensions, and events. Learn how to use VBA to control PaperSpace, Viewports, and plotting; and how to extend AutoCAD to communicate with other applications and across the Internet. The book also includes a start-to-finish case study application that integrates an AutoCAD drawing with a Microsoft Access database.
