Creating a Dictionary within BricsCAD
« on: March 09, 2024, 10:48:25 PM »
I'm trying to create a dictionary, using .NET, to hold several values that I will need to use during the life of a drawing. While I have found information on the subject, I have not been able to get the code to work.

Basically, what I want to do is create a dictionary e.g., MyDict and store several keys and values, e.g., "Project", "New", and recall the value of "Project" later on.

I would appreciate any assistance that would allow me to implement the Dictionary.

This should be in the .NET section of you want to use .net

Though, if you just want to store a few variables, I recommenced using the custom section in DWGPROPS
it's also easy to access the via API's easily

You can also link fields to these custom properties..

Thanks for your suggestion. I've used the DWGPROPS before, so I am familiar with the method.
