Probs with plugin programming

Recommended Posts

Or, sabrown100, you could answer the question. :roll:

I have no idea (not a programmer), so I can't. :-)

But he is correct. You should make your thread title more unique. Look at the rules (specifically number 6)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

You should be more patient.

Nobody here is 'at your service, Sir!'

This is an example of code you could reuse to create a text file within an effect type plugin (not a file type).

// Part of code to include in a code for plugin
// to "debug.print" some values in a text file.
// This code alone isn't working!
using System.IO;

public static bool init = false;
// maybe also declare these varibles as public static!!
public static int margT = -1, margB = -1, margR = -1, margL = -1;

if (!init)
 // calculating process should be here !
 // Example:
 margT = -1; margB = -1; margR = -1; margL = -1;

 // Loop through all the pixels to find Left/Right/Top/Bottom
 // position of an object (something in a transparent area)
 for (int y = selection.Top; y < selection.Bottom; y++)
   for (int x = selection.Left; x < selection.Right; x++)
     CurrentPixel = src[x, y];
     if (CurrentPixel.A > 0) 
       if (margR == -1) { margR = MinX; } else if (x > margR) { margR = x; }
       if (margL == -1) { margL = MaxX; } else if (x < margL) { margL = x; }
       if (margB == -1) { margB = MinY; } else if (y > margB) { margB = y; }
       if (margT == -1) { margT = MaxY; } else if (y < margT) { margT = y; }
 // end of calculating process

 // This will always rewrite (write over) the file c:\temp\debugtext.txt
 using (StreamWriter streamWriter = new StreamWriter("c:\\temp\\debugtext.txt"))
   streamWriter.WriteLine(String.Concat("//margin Left  :", margL));
   streamWriter.WriteLine(String.Concat("//margin Right :", margR));
   streamWriter.WriteLine(String.Concat("//margin Top   :", margT));
   streamWriter.WriteLine(String.Concat("//margin Bottom:", margB));
 init = true;

You could provide your code if you want more help!

to ur info, :wink:

i wanted a plugin, that get svg coordinates from a normal bmp.

my problem was the override render method.

This Method overwrites the svg file every time with the new catched coordinates.

And the algorithm to recognize the edges was just to long for a plugin i think.
