I'd like to read data from a .dwg file into my vb.net 2005 application.
I'm not up to speed on how to use AutoCAD, but when I open the dwg file, there is a datagrid type of control in the drawing file that contains 4 columns and many rows. I need to read each row in the datagrid and have the ability to specify which column also.
If anyone has sample code that can read from the current .dwg file open in AutoCAD 2008, that would be very helpful.
I have referenced acdbmgd.dll and acmgd.dll in my project. I've been reading about ObjectARX, but I'm not sure this is available for AutoCAD 2008.
If it's better I read from the AutoCAD file itself or their database, I'd be open to that option also.
the project requires me to read part numbers, descriptions, and quantities from AutoCAD.
