I am new to Navisworks API and would like help on using the DockPanePlugin. I have read the "DockPane Tutorial" by Le Zhang (http://lezhang.net/2012/06/13/navisworks-2013-api-
However I have not found pointers on how to access gui controls on the panel. For example, how can I set/get the text content on a textblock on the panel ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Once you have GUI controls on the panel, you can access it in the same way you would have accessed a GUI located on a Windows Form from the class which initializes the Form. So the options are -
Making the GUI control's (say TextBox) modifier public and acessing it from the, say, BasicDockPanePlugin.cs class in the BasicDocPanePlugin SDK sample.
Or Passing the variable parameter to the Panel and using that to get/set the values of a TextBox - just like it has been done for the Label in the same SDK sample.
Hope this helps.
