DWG Preview can only load DWG, is it possible to load DXF file
Because DWG files are sometimes not easy to create, I don't know its format, DXF is easier
very thankful.
Tribute to the great odcl team!

The DWG Preview relies on a thumbnail image stored in the dwg or dxf. If the drawing file does not contain this image it will not work. Try using a Block View control instead.

I have no problem displaying a .dxf file in a Block View control. Could the problem be that your dxf is not valid? Note: I have tested with BricsCAD.
