Using Programming Languages other than VBA

Sub Example_Parent()
	' This example creates a new toolbar and then finds the parent toolbar.
	' To remove the toolbar after execution of this macro, use the Customize Menu
	' option from the Tools menu.

	Dim currMenuGroup As acadMenuGroup
	Set currMenuGroup = ThisDrawing.Application.MenuGroups.Item(0)

	' Create the new toolbar
	Dim newToolBar As AcadToolbar
	Set newToolBar = currMenuGroup.Toolbars.Add("MyTools")

	' Add a button to the new toolbar.
	' All three buttons will have the same macro attached.
	Dim newButton1 As AcadToolbarItem
	Dim openMacro As String

	' Assign the macro string the VB equivalent of "ESC ESC _open "
	openMacro = Chr(3) & Chr(3) & Chr(95) & "open" & Chr(32)

	Set newButton1 = newToolBar.AddToolbarButton("", "OpenFile", "Open a file.", openMacro)

	' Display the toolbar
	newToolBar.Visible = True

	' Find the parent toolbar for the toolbar button
	MsgBox "The " & & " button is on the " & & " toolbar."
