Subscribe to RSSThis section lists the project settings and minimum files required to build a basic ObjectARX application. You can also specify the locations in the Project Properties, but you'll need to include full paths to the files for every project you create. If you prefer, you can control this warning instead by using pragma warning statements. See the Microsoft documentation for more information about pragma warning statements. For example, the minimum code shown below requires rxapi. You will need to add source file s to the new project. If you already have source files or are using sample program source files, add these files. This example shows the minimum code needed to make an ObjectARX program. The project also needs a definition file. Add a new text file to the project and name it with a. Enter the following code in the DEF file. The symbol will still appear in the application's export table, allowing AutoCAD to find and call the symbol. This is important because every ObjectARX application or Object Enabler must have its own implementation of these functions. The application gets the implementation of acrxGetApiVersion by virtue of linking to the static library rxapi. Making certain to link to rxapi. For example, if your desired output file name is test. Once you have added these two source files, you can build a basic ObjectARX application. Use the following settings for your project Set the application type to DLL. Specify the ObjectARX library and include file locations. This setting suppresses compiler warning for pointer assignments that are not bit compatible. Some ObjectARX header files contain such assignments. Parent topic: Getting Started.
Setting up an ObjectARX Project Using Microsoft Visual Studio
By muck, April 24, in. After downloading the installer, did you ' unblock ' the file before installing? If not, Right Clickselect Properties option, then hit the Unblock button. Hit Ok. Try installing again. I am sorry to revive the thread but I faced the same problem. Thank you so much for your reply and trying to help me with this. It really is unfortunate that it is this confusing for new developers Guess that's why I frequently see the recommendation to spend a year learning to develop. NET development. I would point out though, that the AutoCAD. Just handles a few convenience factors, really. You can still setup your own, custom templates. OMG I have installed the. NET Wizard after restarting my computer. I believe you mean 'debug' In any event, one way to debug is to hit the play button, another is to right click the desired project solutions can have multiple nested projectsand then select Debug, Start New Instance. Not debug for example when you write a code in VB. Many thanks for your replies BlackBox. When you press play a dll will be created and AutoCAD will start. Once that has loaded you can type the command name and it will run. Add breakpoints into your code and you can step through. Note however, you can't make many? If your change requires recompiling of the dll you have to exit AutoCAD to ensure the dll gets removed from memory. Visual Studio offers an "Edit and Continue" feature that does allow some code modification whilst debugging. The caveat, however, is that it only works with 32 bit installs. Even though the laptop is capable of speedier development overall, I almost always use the desktop. I must be getting claustrophobic, or mildly blind, because the expanded real estate is more important. I've grown accustom to Edit and Continue's absence; it forces more attention on early code renditions. Dbroada, and Seant have pretty much covered it The only thing I can add at this point, is that since the OP's just starting out developing. That's really great BlackBox. That is kind of you to say, Michaels; we're happy to help. You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.
