Plug-Ins

P: n/a
Is there a way to create a report or file maintenance menu which will allow
me to email special report modules to clients and have them appear on the
main menu? I guess I am saying, how can you create a plug-in menu for
special modules?

Hi Jerry,

To the best of my knowledge, one could dynamically alter the content of the
main menu. Thus, you could scan a pre-defined folder within the application
folder for assemblies which contain a class implementing an a priori known
interface. When such an assembly is found, it gets listed on the "Plug-ins"
menu. You can refer to documentation on System.Reflection namespace as well
as on System.Reflection.Assembly class to get technical details on how this
could be done.

A really simple Plug*In* sample:

<http://www.mvps.org/dotnet/dotnet/samples/codingtechnique/>
-> "PlugIns"

If you want to plug *out* Plugins, search for the "LiveCode" sample written by NETMaster (Thomas Scheidegger) at <http://www.codeproject.com/>.
