Plugin::BuildMenu (wxMenuBar*) never gets called [resolved]
« on: March 02, 2007, 10:43:36 am »
Hi,

in a plugin, I intend to make changes to the main menu.

The plugin compiles and can be installed without problems and appears in the "Plugins" submenu. I created the plugin with a wizard and checked the "plugin changes menu" box.

However, the auto-created method ::BuildMenu(wxMenuBar*) never gets called even though I can see the "Updating menu..." progress bar.

I rather expected adding/removing menu items, toolbottons and the like in ::OnAttach/::OnDetach, i.e. when initializing/deinitializing the plugin. Even if ::BuildMenu was called I would not know wether I had to add the items or to remove them...

This applies to both under linux and windows. So I obviously have some misunderstandings of what a plugin is or what is not, and what it's limitations are?

svn is 3655 (linux) resp. 3652 (win)

Your plugin inherits from cbToolPlugin. This plugin type doesn't receive events for menus/toolbar. Change your plugin class to inherit from cbPlugin if you want full access.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...
