Alrighty!

 

RE: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/116364-math-support-latex/

 

Here's the second draft: <removed>

 

 

Installation:

 

  1. Unzip the file
  2. Copy both DLL files to....
  • Classic: your \Effects\ folder.
  • Store:  /My Documents/ paint.net App Files/Effects/

       3. Restart paint.net

       4. find the plugin in Effects > Text Formations

Notes:

  1. I tried and failed to bundle the two DLL's into one
  2. Renders in Black - not the Primary color.
  3. Remainder of the layer will be made transparent

1) Needs some Dark Theme lovin'  https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/112962-guide-dark-theme-support-for-custom-effectconfigdialog/

2) The 'X' needs to capitalized. LaTeX

3) You're still generating the image in the UI class. It's usually better to do that kind of thing in OnSetRenderInfo()

I ran into this when building my GmicSharpPdn example plugin.

I ended up using the ILMerge.Fody NuGet package with a customized included files filter, see the Build notes section of the gmic-sharp-pdn-example Readme for details.

Thanks Null54. I'll try that.

 

I should have been more verbose when I mentioned that issue. I did manage to get the DLLs combined, unfortunately the plugin did not run in that state. The error was along the lines of "your plugin can't find WpfMath.dll or one of its components".

I haven't succeeded in bundling the DLLs. I'm inclinded think the WpfMath.dll may not be playing nicely with ILMerge.

Sorted.

After looking at the ILMerge manual, my guess is that WpfMath uses embedded resources that it fails to find after merging.

You will probably just have to distribute the two DLL files.

Looks pretty good now, but I have a few suggestions:

- Set the maximum height of the dialog to a much lower value.

- The plugin output should either: make the entire canvas transparent, or the equation should be blended onto the source Surface.

- For the "More plugins" link, you should use the IShellService.LaunchUrl() method since it does error/exception handling for you.  And don't forget the 's' in https://

Services.GetService<IShellService>().LaunchUrl(null, "https://www.getpaint.net/redirect/plugins.html");

- Don't forget to set the Cancel property in CancelEventArgs:

private void MathLaTexConfigDialog_HelpButtonClicked(object sender, CancelEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
    MessageBox.Show("Bla Bla Bla");
}

- Each time you set a new value for your Bitmap, be sure to dispose the old value. Garbage Collection in .NET is pretty good these days, but exercising "best practices" is still better.

myBitmap?.Dispose();
myBitmap = new Bitamp(newValue)

Actually, for the HelpButton, you should just use the override, instead of assigning a method to the event.

 

protected override void OnHelpButtonClicked(CancelEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
    base.OnHelpButtonClicked(e);

    Services.GetService<IShellService>().LaunchUrl(null, "https://www.getpaint.net/redirect/plugins.html");
}

 

And do the same for any other Events on the Form.

Done. I'll fix the height.

I've gone with clearing the canvas.

Changed.

Quite right. Added.

That's neat. Changed.

You should also fix the issue with scaling size.

 

I'm working through the HiDPI issues (there are a few....)

Alrighty. This build should have fixed the high DPI issues and I've added some theme-love to make the error messages more readable too.

 

I tested it at 100%, 125%, 150% & 175% font size. If anyone wants to go higher - please let me know if it continues to scale well.
