Hi all


Anybody know how to autoamtically load a plugin during startup of NW?


I would like to respond to document events and it's easy to register but my plugin is not loaded until I click the plugin button in NW.

Have you noticed such type of plugin EventWatcherPlugin which is provided from Navisworks 2012? A typical implementation will subscribe to some API events in OnLoaded and unsubscribe in OnUnloading. Please refer to the topic EventWatcherPlugin Class in the help document. <Navisworks>\api\net\examples\Automation\MessageClientServer\MessageClientPlugin is a sample.
