Viewing Code :
For a better code viewing option,
In your UserProfile in Look and Layout Preferences set the theme to Mercury.


Copy and Paste code :
With code posts that use the new colored formatting ;
ie
Code - C#: [Select]
  1.                foreach (MText mtxt in mtextToFix)
  2.                {
  3.                    mtxt.Contents = mtxt.Text;

  5.  

If you use IE9, the best way to copy the code to the clipboard is to select 'Quote' at the top Right of the post
and then clip the code from the post editor.
( Cancel or hit the Page-Back button when done )

FireFox and Chrome will copy the code without the line numbers and retaining the whitespace formatting

Are there any up to date online lessons for developing with C# that are geared towards AutoCAD products and relatively painless to follow?

I'm not having any luck.

All of the current stuff on Autodesk's site seems to be geared towards Revit or is older and impossible to learn from (e.g. Podcasts that are horribly produced and somewhat out of date).

Hi!

I´m absolut newbi in C# Application and have learned the basic´s. I think about future and will program in Autocad Civil API, how can see a guidance to use Autocad API.
The problem is I only find viewings in Visual basic, know anybody is there in c#
Title: Re: .NET Getting Started
Post by: CADbloke on December 12, 2012, 10:09:29 PM
A couple of good resources for learning online ... http://pluralsight.com/training/courses & http://tekpub.com/library (Pluralsight bought them and now host their courses) both offer video courses on various topics. Both have varying subscription options that aren't particularly expensive. Pluralsight has the option of paying more for the code and course materials as well.

http://channel9.msdn.com/ is also good (and free), particularly the recordings of presentations at events like Build / PDC & Tech Ed etc.

Here's a getting started page on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/beginner/default.aspx) (also free).  Believe it or not, Bing (http://www.bing.com/search?q=system.text.regularexpressions+c%23) is a great way to search for things in the .NET framework and MSDN library

Learn to use source control. Git & Mercurial (Hg) are the front runners. I prefer Mercurial...but now use Git... (Mostly for TortoiseHg (http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/)) but Git is the popular with all the kids. If you're using Windows then http://windows.github.com/ is a good Git client, easy to use. Google for getting started tutorials on those - there are tons. There's a fundamental difference between DVCS (Git & Hg et al - Google it) & checkout-based systems. Short answer - DVCS good, Visual Source Safe bad, Subversion old, TFS Idontevenbutitspopular. Do some homework. Or just use Git. Another improving option is https://www.visualstudio.com/ as a git host. If you like TFS and all that then this is a good option. It is tightly integrated with Visual Studio, as you would expect.

Set up accounts and browse open source projects on
to see what is out there and see how others write code (http://www.hanselman.com/blog/ReadingToBeABetterDeveloperTheCoding4FunDevKit.aspx).

To host your own code http://www.fogcreek.com/kiln/ is private Hg & Git, free for 1-2 people (http://www.fogcreek.com/fogbugz/student-and-startup/). This is my favorite, not least because you can use Git & Hg interchangeably on the same repo, seamlessly. Wow. Not free anymore and doesn't do Git <=> Hg anymore. I pay for Github these days

Bitbucket has free private repositories (Hg or Git but no conversions) and there is also http://www.visualstudio.com/ (Private TFS & Git). Github has private repos but they are paid (https://github.com/pricing). I use Fugbugz (not so much these days) Trello  (https://trello.com/)+ Kiln  (http://www.fogcreek.com/kiln/)although I'd say Bitbucket & Github are less complex and probably more apt for anyone who is not a big corp team. Try them and see what suits you. I use both Kiln and Bitbucket - both to limit the damage from my stupids and also in case one has an outage. GitLab is a newer alternative with free Git Hosting: https://about.gitlab.com/gitlab-com/

... added later ... In the Git vs Hg war I have decided that everybody wins. The clients play well together so why not use both? They behave in a similar fashion and (I think) their evolution is bringing them closer over time.
... even later ... I am mostly Git these days, particularly now the integration with Visual Studio makes most of the trivial stuff so convenient.

For Git tips see http://git-scm.com/book & There's a Pluralsight video course (http://pluralsight.com/training/Courses/TableOfContents/git-fundamentals). The Visual Studio addon for Git (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/63a7e40d-4d71-4fbb-a23b-d262124b8f4c) is good and Microsoft have recently officially adopted Git (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/abafc7d6-dcaa-40f4-8a5e-d6724bdb980c).

For Mercurial (aka Hg) See http://hginit.com/ & http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/. There are Pluralsight video courses (http://pluralsight.com/training/Courses/Find?highlight=true&searchTerm=git).  The Visual Studio addon for Hg (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/d710c4b8-1622-4016-af20-977909e1088b) is good, as is the one for Git (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/63a7e40d-4d71-4fbb-a23b-d262124b8f4c) (2015 update - Git is mostly integrated in VS2015). I currently (mid 2014) use the VisualHg version at https://bitbucket.org/lmn/visualhg2/wiki/Home

TortoiseHg (http://tortoisehg.bitbucket.org/) & TortoiseGit (http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/) play fine together on Windows. I use SmartGit/Hg (http://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/) on Windows these days. It's not free for commercial use (it is free for personal use) and it runs in Java but it works well (for me)  Sourcetree (http://sourcetreeapp.com/) is a nice Windows / Mac client for both Git & Mercurial. There are other tools (http://git-scm.com/downloads/guis). It's a coke / Pepsi thing - try a few and see which one you like. Presently (Oct 2015) I find SmartGit more actively maintained.

Use Source control - it gives you the freedom to stuff it all up totally and then save the day with a couple of clicks. If you adopt no other newfangled thing, do this.

I mentioned it above but http://StackOverflow.com is a brilliant resource. So is The Swamp (http://www.theswamp.org) but you know that already.

https://trello.com/ is great for organising stuff, it was run by Fog Creek (Fogbugz) and it's Free. I use it for everything. E v e r y t h i n g.

Write code. Break things. That's how you learn.

[edit: added TortoiseHg & Github for Windows links & later more Git & Hg links & the TFS online thang]

Did I mention Use Source control? No, really, it's the most liberating coding-thing you will ever learn.

Title: WPF MVVM - lots of links for your Lerns and Entity Framework bonus
Post by: CADbloke on April 28, 2015, 06:00:37 AM
A few months ago I binged on the Internet to learn more about WPF MVVM, here is a cherry-picked list of links I saved. There are  215 links so they are attached as a html page, otherwise this would look like the spammiest comment on the Internet).

A lot of the good WPF articles date back to 2008-ish, don't let that scare you, it hasn't changed fundamentally much (http://paulstovell.com/blog/six-years-of-wpf) since then so they are still very relevant. Code Project (http://www.codeproject.com/) was da bomb back in the day (it is still a good resource).

Um, there's a lot of links, ok but don't let that scare you. Have a browse and you will get a good idea (I hope) of the WPF landscape. Like anything in our programming world there is an infinite depth you can dive to, it depends on how long you can hold your breath. Trust me, I'm messing with Entity Framework (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/data/ef) at the moment.  oh, you want to know about that too? Sucker...
So far I've managed to get 240,000 attributes in  37,000 blocks from 205 drawings into SQL Server in 4 minutes (with no Async) so it's not as slow as it used to be (the AutoCAD part of it takes ~ 1 minute). EF is actually not especially difficult to use either although it is very easy to use it badly, as I rediscover on a regular basis. Stack Overflow has lots of great answers to a lot of tricky edge-case stuff, as per usual.

If you haven't already figured it out, learning about this stuff is just as iterative as doing it, if you don't stuff it up lots you're not getting better at it.

...edit a few days later...in yet another effort to break things I Asynced the Entity framework routines and the process time when from just over 4 minutes to 2 - 2-1/2 minutes.
