Ribbon for ZWCAD
« on: February 07, 2024, 04:28:51 PM »
Can anyone tell me if it is possible and how to create a custom Ribbon for ZWCAD with C#?
I haven't found anything about this yet.
Thanks.

You can first implement this feature in AutoCAD, and then convert it to ZWCAD by replacing the namespace.

In addition, as far as I know, you can also consult the official of ZWCAD.

Thanks for the answer,
But ZWCAD does not allow this via C# only through .CUIX files

I tried to port an AutoCAD plugin to ZWCAD, I gave up after an hour. The ZW .NET API is a thousand paper cuts different. BricsCAD was a walk in the park, as is the ODA .NET Classic library.

Interesting, Not using .NET anymore, but ZWs C++ API is generally pretty good. 
Did you reach out to them?

Nah. Theres just loads of differences in the API objects. Im sure its possible but I dont have enough years left in me.
