cadimage.dll nearest point problem

Post by geri » 03 Nov 2011, 21:22


Playing with the demo for cadimage.dll, I see that the "get nearest entity" is usually not near the cursor, though I guess it should be.
See the attached image. Is it fixed now ?

Also, can this (or another) DLL return model coordinates for this, not pixel coordinates ?
By using pixel coordinates it's not really accurate to calculate back real coordinates based only on zooming. It's little useful this way, I should say.

Thank you for your response.
see the distance between the cursor and blue marker!

The solution for such problem was developed some time ago. We have already implemented the additional function also into CAD Image DLL. The function provides access to entities coordinates in WCS. Unfortunately these modifications wasn't released yet. However we're working on the release version that can be ready soon. Please mail to if you wish to receive a beta version.
