How to develop cad like application

P: n/a
I have searched a lot but is unable to find a sample code for developing CAD
like application where we can drag circles, square etc. from tollbar connect
them with line etc. If anyone of you are able to find please provide me the
link for the same.

Cad like autocad programs, tend to take advantage of the graphics card for
3d modeling. In that case, perhaps you would like to look at directx,
or openGL. (not an easy task for a beginner.) I haven't a clue if 3d modeling
was your plan, or not, but I though I should throw that out...

Thanks for reply,

Actually I want to develop visio like application but in simple form. And
that will use vector graphics not bitmap as Paint.net does.

Thanks

Thanks for reply,

Actually I do not want to utilize render properties, so no use of graphics
cards. I want components just in wireframe mode sowhat like visio.

Even if you arnt going to "render", 3D wireframe is still *cough* easier in
directx.
So perhaps the q is: are you trying to do 3d?

I think you underestimate the task, you keep refering to Visio but this is the result of
multi man/years of coding.
As Michael has said, take a look at Paint.NET, this will get you an idea of what you can do
in managed code.
