I'd like to show DWG- and .DXF-files in an application. How should I beat the problem? I do not even know if it is possible....
.DWG-files is the fileformat that AutoCAD is working with...
.DXF-files is a Drawing Exchange Format for import- and export-tasks in most CAD-systems...

I use Delphi Developer 2.0...

Thanks You!

Well, It's not so hard. Download a component from Delphi Super Page.

Hi all!

I know you all or looking for a component, but maybe this is usefull, just a suggestion : Maybe you can write the component yourself if you knew the file-format? Am I correct or do you all already know the file-format? If not, go and see this page

http://www.wotsit.demon.co.uk/

It's a sort of File Format Collection. You can find a lot there.
e.g. :

DXF -> http://www.wotsit.demon.co.uk/graphics.htm/DXF.ZIP
DWG -> http://www.wotsit.demon.co.uk/graphics.htm/dwg_ff.zip

Wel, that's all folks, hope you are something with this, if not,
well sorry for the interruption, it was just a suggestion.

Tom, I tried to get the files you mentioned above, but it said I wasn't authorized.  If you are, I would really appreciate it you would get them, and E-Mail them to me at:  iancamp@interlog.com

PS.  Hope my OnRangeChange works for you.
