View, create, edit, print, and manage 2D vector drawings. AVAX is an ActiveX control (OCX) that includes over 500 properties, methods, and events to provide full control over vector drawings. AVAX also includes standard geometric shapes - line, point, polyline, circle, ellipse, etc. - as well as polygon shapes filled with any kind of pattern, such as AutoCAD® .PAT files, Bitmaps, animations, etc. You can export images to virtually any image type, including DWG, DXF, SVG, SWF, PLT, PIC, PDF, XML, RTF and WMF.
