Can I show UI during OnLoad?


Recommended Posts

During OnLoad, I decode every mipmap. If I wanted to give import options, I'd have to show UI. Since OnLoad has no "Load Configuration" panel unlike with OnSave, I thought of using MessageBox.Show to ask whether to import mipmaps or not with a Yes No dialog. Is this against the plugin rules?

Yes, you can show a dialog in OnLoad.

There are a number of FileType plugins that do it, e.g. WEBP Animations and ImagesIcon, Cursor, and Animated Cursor, etc.

But Paint.NET does not officially support this, so there may be issues with it (e.g. canceling the dialog may cause Paint.NET to show an error message).

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait
