Date Votes
  • Regarding the Asynchronous file import, the viewportLayout.Read*() methods now directly add the entities to the viewportLayout at the end of the loading.

    If you don't want to do that but instead you want to access the entities after the loading has been done to do some operations on them, you can do it in 2 ways:


    1) Synchronous way

    Create an object of the appropriate Read* class and call viewportLayout.DoWork().

    After that you can access the entities inside that object:

    string filename = "test.obj";
    ReadOBJ ro = new ReadOBJ(filename, false);
    // Do whatever you like with the entities after the loading


    2) Asynchronous way

    Derive the Read* class, run the asynchronous loading with the viewportLayout.StartWork() and in the WorkCompleted() method of the derived class do whatever you like with the loaded entities:

    class MyReadObj : ReadOBJ
        public MyReadObj(string fileName, bool plain) : base(fileName, plain)
        protected override void WorkCompleted(ViewportLayout viewportLayout)
            // Do whatever you like with the entities after the loading
    // Then use it like this
    ReadOBJ ro = new MyReadObj(filename, false);
