General discussion about plugins.

Postby Aivars » Fri Feb 01, 2013 2:44 pm

Feel free to talk here about:
  • Plugin development and howto
  • Plugin usage and experiences
  • Requests and wishes

Do not create new threads unless they contain downloadable plugin that you have developed. All discussions about a specific plugin should go in its thread. All other more general discussions should go here.

Note that plugin development help and examples can be found here: http://help.blumentals.net/webuilder/pl ... ucture.htm

1. Is there any way to reload updated plugin code without restarting the whole editor? It's really annoying to test, if you have to restart all the time :roll:

2. Where can I find a good JScript API documentation, that is compatible to the JScript for plugins? I wanted to make use of a switch/case statement or the ternary operator, but I always got compiling errors and I don't know why :(

3. You should prescribe plugin namespaces, to prevent duplicates - in the TYPO3 universe its a common practise to use name or company credentials + plugin name, e.g. ab_custom_plugin

1. You can disable and re-enable plugin to reload it. Note that disabling plugin does not remove its menu actions, just disables them, but that should not be a problem.

2. I can't say I have any but I'm attaching a bunch of samples that cover all control structures and common-case scenarios. Here's a sample for switch..case
Code: Select all
  switch (i)
  {
    case 1: j = 1;
    case 2..10: { j = 2; j++; }
    default: { j = 10; }
  }


3. You might be right... It would be a good idea for author to include their name or credentials in plugin's name. Name of zip file is not important, it's the name defined in plugin.ini that counts.

It's being planned, yes. Also the best of our users are creating awesome color schemes now and then, which eventually make their way to the official release.

We are planning to integrate emmet but we have to finish some other things first.

Hello,

I would like to build my own plugin. I like the code beautifier (I think it's the english name for the php code formatting tool) but I would like to make it available via short cut or even better to automate it.
How can I run the php formatter in a plugin?

Best regards
ichthys

The built in beautifier is not available as external executable that you could call from a plugin. You can however assign a shortcut key to Format PHP Code command via Options -> Keyboard Shortcuts.

Originally I inadvertently posted this to the wrong area, so I am re-posting it here.

I am a new member to this forum and would like to know if there is a more in depth form of documentation available for the plugin classes.

I am currently developing a plugin which includes several forms for user input, but there are some commands that I want to use such as reading and writing to the plugin properties.ini file, displaying an image on the main form using TImage and TPicture, and I keep getting runtime errors presumably because the syntax I am using is incorrect. Also, passing the text contained in a TMemo field to a function for processing seems to be impossible because a TMemo field contains more than one line of text, so it doesn't have a (.Text) property that you can use to reference all of the text in the control.

I am well conversed in javascript, visual basic and html programming and have followed the links to the Embarcadero website for information on the built in classes used in WeBuilder. Although I have gleaned some useful info to get me started with creating plugins, I can't find all the info that I need to complete my plugin project.The information available at the Embarcadero web site is too none-specific to WeBuilder.

Any help from the developers or forum users would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The other area was fine, too :) I replied you there.

I'm working on a "Toggle Comment" script, but having trouble with key binding. I want to bind "Ctrl + /"
I first tried to assign a shortcut key, but it doesn't seem to respond to that. (a bug)
Next I tried to make a signal to "keydown", but I'm not sure how to do a combination key, with Ctrl.
Any suggestions?

Edit: I also tried in the Script.RegisterAction part, and it still rejects "Ctrl + /".
I have my script running fine for now using another hotkey, until I figure out how to get "Ctrl + /" to work.
