     This program will open and allow you to view any '2D' ASCII DXF file. It supports BLOCKS, INSERTS, DIMENSIONS, and ALL 2D GEOMETRY types (for R12 and R13). It stores the DXF data in an array, so you have full access to perform manipulation and calculations on the geometry. NO OCX REQUIRED - just pure VB. *Keep an eye out for an update that will hande R14 and DWG 2D files.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I was just wondering if there was anyway to show the dxf in a full view after clicking on it as opposed to having to use the Pan and Zoom options in the form. Thanks
