VB.NET can be used to customize AutoCAD with nearly unlimited power and flexibility. And for those who have been customizing AutoCAD with VBA, VB.NET is the logical language of choice once VBA is completely phased out of AutoCAD.

This book is the edited, updated, and revised version of the VB.NET for AutoCAD 2007 Customization book. It includes revisions to code to make it easier to read, and to bring it into conformity with currently-accepted best practices.

Special consideration has been given to those migrating from VBA into VB.NET. Code has been "Functionized" to aid in an easier transition into VB.NET and make your VB.NET programming as easy as VBA.

Those who register their book on the vbcad.com website will have immediate access to all code snippets, source files, and an electronic version of the book. They will also have their choice of several pre-recorded on-line webinar sessions to help them in areas of particular interest to them.
