- Understanding Plugins
This tutorial discusses the theory behind how plugins work
in, common sense, walk along terms. Included is a sample
project that gives you a good clean framework to start with
and will teach you how to easily code your own plugins.
In the article I also touch on what plugins can access,
how to hook events of host form objects, and describe how
COM is language independent.
In last phase, I provide 4 sample plugins so that you can
show developers in other languages how to work with this
framework. Examples include clients written in Visual Basic 6,
Visual C++ 6, Visual J++, and even a VBScript COM object plugin
example using Windows Script Components.
