WME PlugIn and C# / .NET
« on: August 17, 2009, 12:24:34 PM »

Hi,
Today I tried to rewrite wme plugin sdk to c# (i trought that wme plugins are .net assemblies), but it is not possible to make plugin with some .net language?
Thanks in advance!

WME plugins are "normal" DLL libraries, not .NET assemblies. If you wanted to write plugin in C#, you'd have to create some kind of wrapper DLL (written in C++/CLI), which would export standard DLL functions, but internally route the calls to C# code.

The debugging console (wme_console.dll) works in a similar fashion. You can check the sources.

If anyone's interested, I've put together a really quick&dirty project which contains a simple plugin (derived from wme_sample), which instantiates a C# class and redirect a script method ("SampleMethod") to the C# class method, which displays a message box.

It's really just a proof of concept more than anything else. One would need to do a lot more stuff, for example it would be nice to have some neat .NET wrapper classes for the engine objects available to plugins.

It requires Visual Studio 2005 or later because it uses C++/CLI.
