    Default Programming AutoCAD in ObjectARX by Charles McAuley

    Is there an updated version of this or is this still relevant to today's Autocad? Is there anything else similar to this out there?

    Wiley holds the official Autodesk Press. They don't list any books on ObjectArx, so I guess that all you can get are out-of-print books. That said, you need to have a good understanding of C++ first and then learn the AutoCAD object model. This book should be a good start, even though it is old. The current documentation is released with the ObjectArx SDK, which can be downloaded here.

    yeah thanks. i just bought a book on c++. I am familiar with c# & programming in general. Its strange to me though that there are so few options out there for in depth tutorials.

    Yeah, I don't think there is very much money in writing books these days.

    I'm a little afraid of ordering this. I asked a question to a couple of places that had this book & they never responded. I was trying to find out if there is a cd or sample files. If they dont respond to a simple question will i ever get the book delivered? It's from amazon but it's one of those things where it's only available from 3rd party sellers. The other wierd thing is that the new version links show it as $500 where other lists it at $40.

    If you just want a book on C++, I would just go to the library. That's what I did.
