Customizing progeCAD

Programming progeCAD

Another way you can customize progeCAD is to add custom programs written in any of several programming languages that run within progeCAD, including the following:


Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)


  1. In progeCAD, you can run many programs originally created for use with AutoCAD. Specifically, you can use programs written entirely in AutoLISP with no modification. In addition, you can run many ADS programs originally written for use with AutoCAD after first recompiling them using the progeCAD run-time libraries. Many AutoCAD third-party programs are compatible with progeCAD.
  2. NOTE Creating custom programs for use with progeCAD is beyond the scope of this manual. For information about programming for progeCAD, see the online Help for the progeCAD Developer's Reference.
