AutoCAD with .NET 2

Islam
Lesson 2: Getting to Know your Development EnvironmentIn the previous lesson, you saw how you can increase productivity in AutoCAD by implementing a plug-in built from a small amount of Visual Basic .NET code. .NET (or the .NET Framework) is a technology created by Microsoft that enables programmers to create and extend software applications. A programmer may use the ,NET Framework to create a new software application from scratch, to implement communication or interoperability between two software applications, or to extend a software application by implementing a plug-in for it (as you are doing here for AutoCAD). If you are interested in learning more, you will find information in the Additional Topics section.You will now look more closely at what happened when you built and executed the code in the previous…
