Point to Intersectiion VB.net

Recommended Posts

vinayds

Hi Autocad Experts,

 

I am new to Autocad customization using VB.net.

 

We have a requirement to draw a horizontal line from a given co-ordinate to the point where it intersects with any other line. It's perhaps already discussed in the forum, but since I am new to vb.net, I am not able to put things together.

 

Appreciate any help I can get from this forum. Looking forward to replies.

Welcome to CADTutor.

 

Perhaps you can share a bit about your environment, and proficiencies that might help us to help you?

 

What versions are you developing for, what IDE you're using, are you using .NET Wizard or custom template, how are you distributing your app, are just a few questions.

 

Also, please post your code... It doesn't have to be working, or even well written; just something that shows you've put in the initial effort, and precludes another from having to code it all from scratch (which saves us time to help you).

 

Cheers

Some theory to help, pick pt, enter bearing, pick pt as limit of search, using this "new" line you can get all crossing objects, calculate the intersection point for each and compare so you get say the closest pt or longest. Like Blackbox post code.

BLACKBOX/BIGAL:

 

The version I am developing for is Autocad 2012. And IDE I use is Visual Studio 2012. I intend to use command method of execution for now. I have taken snippets of code from this very forum and made some minor changes to see how it works. Below is the code: This does some things more than what I actually need. My requirement is very simple. 1. User will provide a co-ordinate, 2. Should draw (ONLY) a horizontal line from the given co-ordinate until this horizontal line meets another line or object. I am pretty new to this and hence need your support in getting this worked out. Thanks.

Hi there,

 

I tried a set of code which seems to work to a certain extent. But, the horizontal line does not seem to stop at the first intersection. Also, there is a limitation that it only identifies another line for intersection point and not a curve or any other plane. Please help!
