Code Example

The following code example adds an option under the "Plugins" menu option which shows a simple message box when clicked.

using FlatRedBall.Glue.Plugins.Interfaces;
using System.ComponentModel.Composition;
using System.Windows.Forms;

// Make sure your plugin class inherits from IMenuStripPlugin and exports the IMenuStripPlugin interface:
[Export(typeof(IMenuStripPlugin)) ]
public class TortoiseMenuItemsย : IMenuStripPlugin
{
    ToolStripMenuItem mMenuItem;
    MenuStrip mMenuStrip;

    public void InitializeMenu(System.Windows.Forms.MenuStrip menuStrip)
    {
        mMenuStrip = menuStrip;

        mMenuItem = new ToolStripMenuItem("Show Popup");
        ToolStripMenuItem itemToAddTo = GetItem("Plugins");

        itemToAddTo.DropDownItems.Add(mMenuItem);
        mMenuItem.Click += new EventHandler(mMenuItem_Click);
    }

    public bool ShutDown(PluginShutDownReason shutDownReason)
    {
        ToolStripMenuItem itemToAddTo = GetItem("Plugins");
        itemToAddTo.DropDownItems.Remove(mMenuItem);
        return true;
    }

    void mMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("Popup!");
    }

    ToolStripMenuItem GetItem(string name)
    {
        foreach (ToolStripMenuItem item in mMenuStrip.Items)
        {
            if (item.Text == name)
            {
                return item;
            }
        }
        return null;
    }

    // The following methods are all required for plugins:
    public string FriendlyName
    {
        get { return "MessageBox showing plugin"; }
    }

    public Version Version
    {
        get { return new Version(); }
    }

    public void StartUp()
    {
        // do nothing
    }

    public bool ShutDown(PluginShutDownReason shutDownReason)
    {
        // This plugin needs to be responsible and remove itself from Glue when shutting down
        ToolStripMenuItem itemToRemoveFrom = GetItem("Plugins");
        itemToRemoveFrom.DropDownItems.Remove(mMenuItem);
        return true;// We are okay to shut down
    }
