ACAPI_​RegisterModelessWindow

Registers a modeless palette in the API.

    GSErrCode  ACAPI_RegisterModelessWindow (
        Int32                              referenceID,
        APIPaletteControlCallBackProc*     callBackProc,
        GSFlags                            controlFlags,
        const API_Guid&                    paletteGuid = APINULLGuid
    );

 

Parameters

referenceID
[in] Arbitrary number to uniquely identify your modeless palette. (You can use the resource ID if you wish.)
callBackProc
[in] Callback procedure for handling special API messages. It is called by the API, independently of DG.
controlFlags Changed in API 11
[in] Define the behavior of the palette above different ARCHICAD windows (plan, 3D, section, layout), and in case of selection.
paletteGuid Featuring API 15
[in] A unique identifier for recording the state of the palette in the Work Environment. Optional parameter, can be omitted.

 

Return Values

NoError
The function has completed with success.
APIERR_BADID
The passed referenceID has already been used.
APIERR_MEMFULL
No free memory was available for the new entry.

For other common API errors see the API Errors document.

 

Remarks

Modeless palettes now can be opened with the normal DG functions (either DGModelessInit, or DG::Palette). However, the API should know about the existence of an add-on’s palette, so that it could send special messages to the palette (see APIPaletteControlCallBackProc). This function registers the add-on’s modeless window with the API; call it from the Initialize function.

API 11 introduced new values for the controlFlags parameter: API_PalEnabled_Worksheet, API_PalEnabled_Elevation, and API_PalEnabled_InteriorElevation.

 

Example


GSErrCode	__ACENV_CALL Initialize	(void)
{
    GSErrCode err = ACAPI_Install_MenuHandler (DGTEST_MENU_STRINGSID, MenuCommandHandler);

    // If the palette is constructed and registered, the add-on will be not unloaded from the memory while ARCHICAD runs.
    ACAPI_RegisterModelessWindow (OwnerDrawnListBoxPalette::ODLBPaletteRefId (),
                                  OwnerDrawnListBoxPalette::PaletteAPIControlCallBack,
                                  API_PalEnabled_FloorPlan + API_PalEnabled_Section + API_PalEnabled_Elevation +
                                  API_PalEnabled_InteriorElevation + API_PalEnabled_3D +
                                  API_PalEnabled_Detail + API_PalEnabled_Worksheet + API_PalEnabled_Layout +
                                  API_PalEnabled_DocumentFrom3D + API_PalEnabled_ModelCompare, GSGuid2APIGuid (OwnerDrawnListBoxPalette::ODLBPaletteGuid ()));

    if (err != NoError)
        DBPrintf ("DG_Test:: Initialize() ACAPI_Install_MenuHandler failed\n");

    return err;
}		// Initialize
