  Hello group,

  I'm a beginner learning Python.  Trying to automate AutoCAD.  What I
wanted to know is how to receive event fired by the AutoCAD application.
When a drawing opening process is done, the application will fire an event
EndOpen.  In VBA, I know how to catch and respond to this event.  But do not
know how to accomplish it with Python.

  import win32com.client
  acad = win32com.client.Dispatch("AutoCAD.Application")
  acad.Visible = True
  acad.WindowState = 3
  doc = acad.Documents.Open(r"C:\Drawings\test.dwg")
  print ("Drawing opened.")

  Thanks for your time and help,


  - wcc
