Plugins

Recommended Posts

You can write plugins in any language that can output a standard .net DLL. But, I would say that most plugins are written in C#. At least, all of mine are.

Never heard of C# and you've used C++?

You're in for a treat! :D

Download a free C# compiler here (from Microsoft):

http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualcsharp/

Learn about C# here:

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/C_Sharp_Programming

Get the CodeLab plugin here:

This is probably your best place to start. You don't even need a C# compiler. Everything you need to write and compile effects is included in one small download. Also, if you download the zip file, you get lots of examples of how to write effects for Paint.NET.

When you are ready for something advanced download the C# compiler from the link above, then get a template for writing plugins here:
