StartUp issue


I have just downloaded the project and I have this issue when I try to run it:
" A project with an Output Type Class Library cannot be started directly.
In order to debug this project, add an executable project to this solution which references the library project. Set the executable project as the start up project."

Also, where is it supposed to draw onto? I cannot see a canvas on which it will draw the lines. I am very new at this and all I have used in the past have been activeX components which are often very limited. I want to create a complete cad program from scratch using this library but any help will be great.

netDxf is a software library therefore it is compiled as a dll, if you have downloaded the source code and want to run the examples found in the "TestDxfDocument" project you need to manually set it up as the start up project.

This library does not contain any kind of drawing canvas, it is just a library to load, save, and edit dxf files, if you need to draw the contents of the DxfDocument you need to program it.
