Using the Object Model

Objects are the main building blocks of VBA applications. Each exposed object represents a precise part of BricsCAD, such as the active document, the active window, and various drawing entities, including lines, arcs, and text. The objects are structured in a hierarchical fashion called the object model. The object model shows you which object provides access to the next level of objects.

You manipulate BricsCAD objects through properties and methods applicable to each object. A diagram of the BricsCAD object model and a description of the objects, properties, and methods applicable to BricsCAD can be found in The BricsCAD automation object model.
