    Default DotNet Visual Lisp

    I would like to see the DotNet support interaction with Visual Lisp. It would make the transition a go little easier for us lispers

    I think I would rather see autocad support .NET fully. Maybe even VBA.NET?

    Visual Studio Tools for Applications is the .NET equivalent of VBA and provides both VB & C# syntax. Personally I think if lispers want to use the .NET API they should learn VB or C#. I think Autodesk should focus effort on improving the .NET API and developing comprehensive documentation independent of the ObjectARX documentation.

    Let me clarify, I think the .NET API should be able to interact with visual lisp the way ObjectARX can. I.e. like acedDefun() calls. If I can build one function at a time using C#, it would make porting lisp applications much easier.

    Should be no reason anymore for not having this. .NET is even already available in CommonLisp (although the extension won't work as-is in AutoLisp). See this (http://www.weitz.de/rdnzl/).

    Unfortunately AutoLisp is quite far removed from CommonLisp after 20+ years of seperate development. Not to mention that ADesk only used a portion of LISP to begin with when they created their ALisp interpreter.

    But as can shown by this extension, it should not be that difficult to implement even in ALisp / VLisp. Basically just a form of interface to the .NET libraries. Very much the same as the VLisp's vlax mehods which interface with the COM / ActiveX libraries.

    Admittedly, .NET & RDNZL are both a bit over my head, but I would like very much to learn (and have access to) .NET for my work. I am presently relegated to using VLIDE.

    Can you (or someone else?) clarify if RDNZL provides the capability to manipulate the SSM / .DST?

    I have been wanting to do this for a very long time using Visual LISP, and have been informed that only .NET has this capability. If RDNZL is unable, then I might try adding Visual LISP support for SSM / .DST to the API Wish List!?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
