Hi,

As for the VS confusing db tables and acad tables, that can be avoided using an alias, like:

using fTable = Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices.Table

-gnb

Welcome to theSwamp Gasty.

Yes, using an alias works fine locally ... though I've had no issue with the compiler understanding the Class.

My issue is with 'google' and desktop searches for the word 'Table'.

... probably just a personal problem :)

IMHO, some warnings are just to keep the newbie's out of trouble.
For Tables,  I see no issue with setting the number of rows and columns when creating a table, it's the subsequent calls  that can cause problems.  A safer and more generic way to "add" rows & columns would be.

Code: [Select]
tb.InsertRows( tb.Rows.Count, rowHeight, numRows - tb.Rows.Count);
tb.InsertColumns(tb.Columns.Count, colWidth, numCols - tb.Columns.Count);

in fact, this might make a good extension method. (Add)

I do like the newer style, its more dataset like

Welcome indeed!
I hadn't thought of that. Thank you.

BTW - This is only an issue if you are "using" both Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices and System.Data in the same class.
It's amazing what you can do when you don't know what you can't do.
