Title: return value of cbToolPlugin::Execute()
Post by: frithjofh on September 23, 2015, 10:57:58 pm
Hi everyone,

is there any specification as to which are the return values of the function cbToolPlugin::Execute() ?

In the place of the declaration no comments regarding this point are given.

Best regards

wow, what a great interest... ;)

I didn't think my question was that stupid...

if the function returns an int, well, i thought the api should say something about the expected values of that int...

but obviously I'm mistaken... or the devs don't care for that return value... but why does it return a value then... ?

regards

The question is why you are so care about the return value?  :)

As far as I can see the return value is ignored in MainFrame::OnPluginsExecuteMenu.
Probably somebody thought it might be useful for something in the future.

OK, thx for your answers...  ;)

for time being, I'll ignore the return value too.

Maybe someone should put a comment on this some where though...
