Introduction - CADViewer JS API - Viewer Set-upToggle Menu

CADViewer JS is an web infrastructure component developed by Tailor Made Software that allows you to plug in CAD and other high resolution floorplans in vector and bitmap format into a webpage and through dynamic highlight interact with objects defined in the drawing. In addition to funtional interaction, CADViewer JS also supports zoom, pan and pinch controls.

Getting Started

It only requires a few basic steps to get started with CADViewer JS Viewing. Once you have the basics, continue to the sample below.

Code Sample - Viewing

Viewing is making all the basics come together. The code below loads a file into CADVIewer JS.

	<script type="text/javascript">

	var FileNameNoExtension = "E02_rotated"; //DWG    NAME OF THE FILE TO BE LOADED INTO CADVIEWER JS!!!!!
	var FileNamePath = "../drawings/viewing_sample/";   // PATH OF THE FILE TO BE LOADED INTO CADVIEWER JS!!!!!

    // generic callback method, called when drawing or page is fully loaded
	function cvjs_OnLoadEnd(){
			// generic callback method, called when the drawing is loaded
			// here you fill in your stuff, call DB, set up arrays, etc..
			// this method MUST be retained as a dummy method! - if not implemeted -

	// generic callback method, tells which FM object has been clicked
	function cvjs_change_space(object){


	function cvjs_ObjectSelected(rmid){
	 	// placeholder for method in tms_cadviewerjs_modal_1_0_14.js   - must be removed when in creation mode and using creation modal

		if (!isSmartPhoneOrTablet)
			$('#gMenu').html("<img src=\"../images/cvjsToolbar_6_z.png\" style=\"margin-left: 10px; margin-top: 10px;\" usemap=\"#cvjsToolbarMap_1\" border=\"0\" height=\"145\" width=\"62\" class=\"map\" hidefocus=\"true\">");
			$('#gMenu').html("<img src=\"../images/PanZoomWindowFullPages7t.png\" usemap=\"#PanZoomMap\" border=\"0\" height=\"363\" width=\"78\" class=\"map\" hidefocus=\"true\">");


//		cvjs_setUrl_singleDoubleClick(1);
//		cvjs_encapsulateUrl_callback(true);

//  Initialize CADViewer JS

// load Standard drawing
		cvjs_LoadDrawing("floorPlan", FileNamePath, FileNameNoExtension);

	    cvjs_windowResize_position(false, "floorPlan" );

        });  // end ready()

        $(window).resize(function() {

			cvjs_windowResize_position(true, "floorPlan" );

Converting Source Files

CAD drawings are prepared for CADViewer JS using the converter AutoXchange. Download and install AutoXchange from:

Windows download: AutoXchange AX2015

Linux download: upon request

Use the following command to get a complete listing of all conversion controls parameters available in AX2015:

>ax2015 -?

The following command line uses the basic AX2015 control parameters for converting an AutoCAD CAD to CADViewer JS:

>ax2015 -i="myinputfilepath/inputfilename.dwg" -o="myoutputpath/outputfilename.js" -f=js -basic

Note: Following samples will teach you how to set up an on-the-fly connection between AutoXchange and CADViewer JS.
