Programming plugins


Recommended Posts

What language do you use to make plugins? Also is there a guide for people new to developing plugins. I would like to create some plugins but the only programming I am somewhat good at is VB.



I am new to Paint.Net and want to thank everyone for helping Me.

C# seems to be the language of choice (the transition from VB to C# is not too difficult). There are templates available if you have Visual Studio or one of the express packages installed:

C# VS 2005: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=2618

VB.Net: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=23004

The fastest method to get started is to get CodeLab! Get it here

I highly recommend working through the example scripts on BoltBaits web site to get you up and running.

But let's not ignore the possibility of coding them in C++/CLR or MSIL or VB.NET and possibly other .NET languages.. (would IronPython work? F#?)

I'm not saying you're wrong though, it's just for completeness

I would write plugins, if I knew what kind of plugins were needed.. :(
