Magnetoconductance of a strip of two-dimensional electron gas is calculated in the presence of an antidot potential. We use both abrupt and smooth models for the antidot potential. An oscillation due to the Aharonov-Bohm effect is observed as a circulating edge state around the antidot is established. As short-range disorder is introduced, the amplitude of the oscillation is enhanced (suppressed) for magnetic fields below (above) the threshold of the circulating edge state. The position of the resonances in a magnetic field is found to be nearly independent of the moderate disorder.
