How to start using the SDK?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Recently one of our client asked me is there a way to extend the VectorWorks with add-ins/plugins. As I see it is possible.

One using VectorScript which is good for simple tasks.

But we need to create a quite complex solution (because of the UI) so I've checked the SDK. Unfortunately the provided samples aren't so helpful.

Is there more complex samples available in source code?

Regards,

Zolee

It depends what you mean by complex. The advantage of the SDK is that you can call OS functions, create custom option toolbar, handle other events not available in VS, etc.

I would start with VS and if you need a more custom solution, migrate to the SDK since the same VW functions are available to both, VS and the SDK.

Believe me VS is not the path for me.

By the way I've started to learn the SDK.

One more question:

Does a Mac really necessary to create a resource (.qtr) for a Windows based plugin?

Or is there a way to create a .qtr file using Windows?
