Call plug-in from within plug-in

Recommended Posts

Can I invoke one plug-in object from within another?

I'd like to offer the user a choice of placing either a path or a rectangle object (as the VectorArch "Space tool" does).

Like the VW "Space Tool", when finished I want to end up with a plug-in object which (togheter with other elements) includes a polygon or rectangle which reports its area and perimeter to the object info palette and which can be edited on screen.

I can't find documentation how to do this, (the space tool is locked so I can't see how it works), but I wonder if the ability to call a path or rectangle plug-in from within the plug-in object exists and is a possible solution.

Sure you can!

Hopefully the people you have paid money to can help you. You know: Mr NNA.

Ohh, forgot: they've decided to protect their Intellectual (!) Property from their paying customers. Tough!
