XRecord

Important class for storing application defined data in DXF files.

XRECORD objects are used to store and manage arbitrary data. They are composed of DXF group codes ranging from 1 through 369. This object is similar in concept to XDATA but is not limited by size or order.

To reference a XRECORD by an DXF entity, store the handle of the XRECORD in the XDATA section, application defined data or the ExtensionDict of the DXF entity.
