    Default Handler AutoCAD Window Moved

    Is there a way to handle the event when the AutoCAD application moved?

    something like this..
    AddHandler Application.LocationChanged, AddressOf Window_LocationChanged

    If so, where do I find it. And if this can be done, I need to get the position of the window too.

    Something like this..
    Private Sub MainWindow_LocationChanged(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
    Dim mTop as double = sender.Top
    Dim mLeft as double = sender.Left
    End Sub

    It appears that I should do something like this…

    1. Dim acApp As AcadApplication
    2. acApp = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.AcadApplication
    3. AddHandler acApp.WindowMovedOrResized, AddressOf ACADApp_WindowMovedOrResized

    But on Line 2, I get this error…
    Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Autodesk.AutoCAD.Interop.AcadApplication'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{2959C1CC-8577-4EDB-ADDC-6EBBAB147926}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE)).

    I have also tried this too but I did not have any luck.
    acApp = DirectCast(Marshal.GetActiveObject("AutoCAD.Application"), AcadApplication)

    I read some documents about this being a bug in AutoCAD and some people were accessing the application like this…
    acApp.GetType().InvokeMember("COPY", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, Nothing, acApp, Nothing)
    but I have not gotten it work either.
