    Default Looking for the functions used in AutoCAD

    Hello,
    I was reading the Visual Basic Reference in Autocad. I was looking for the functions about Autocad like info about line, How to manipulate, create..an entity (line, circle...)
    but nothing, "only" information about VBa.
    Do I've missed something?
    Thanks

    Online references consist of several 'books'. You're looking only at the reference for VBA. You need to look at the adesk Developer Guide. If you just hit F1 while you're in the IDE, you will go to the vba help. Switch back to the TOC tab and back up a few levels in the hierarchy, or hit F1 while you're in acad. You should see a link to 'ActiveX automation and VBA'.

    Open the Object Browser ( View menu -> Object Browser) select the AutoCAD Object you are looking for then the F1 key
    Note:
    update to 2011
    I am using ADT 2007 08/06/2008

    PS. If you use any Code I post or Down Load Attachment I would like to know if it was helpful. So please post reply to this thread, on how you use the code or down load. Thank You

    This reference manual doesn't appear to be available.
    I'm using AC2006. Do you have to Load this refence manual from somewhere?

    Try the help system from AutoCAD. There is a link in AutoCAD's help to the Developer's help sections.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    You can manually load it if you want. It is acad_dev.chm. In fact I have made a shortcut to it in acad.cmd.
