ShapeUp SDK Plug-in Wizards 

Once the wizard kit is downloaded and installed (check the ReadMe.txt file for details), the wizards are ready to use. There are some settings to chose from when creating a plug-in project. Each wizards settings is described below.

Check the ShapeUp Plug-in API Reference, available from the developer page, for further details.



ShapeUp GPI Wizard 

The GPI wizard is used to create a ShapeUp generic plug-in to control various aspects of ShapeUp.


Application Settings 

Supported objects 

  • Settings dialog

    This option will generate an empty settings dialog which the user can access from the settings button on Tools | Options | Plugins | GPI page. Enable this feature if you have settings that are in some sence permanent, e.g. DSN for an ODBC connection you don't want to ask the user for each time the GPI is invoked. Values collected are preferably stored in the registry for later access.

  • Toolbar

    Check this box if you want to supply a custom toolbar.

  • Scriptable by JavaScript

    Check this box if you want to support scripting of this GPI.



ShapeUp Loader Plug-in Wizard 

The loader wizard is used to create a plug-in for importing data into ShapeUp.


Application Settings 

Supported objects 

  • Points

    Check this box if you want to support loading of point objects.

  • Polylines

    Check this box if you want to support loading of polyline objects.

  • Polygons

    Check this box if you want to support loading of polygon objects.

Additional features 

  • Attribute support

    If you intend to supply attributes for each theme and shape, check this box. The default attribute support requires a static set of attributes for each loaded theme. If you require a dynamic set of attributes, i.e. you don't know at compile time what the set looks like, you will have to modify this architecture. Check the forum for ideas.

  • Settings dialog

    This option will generate an empty settings dialog which the user can access from the settings button on Tools | Options | Plugins | Loaders page. Enable this feature if you have settings that are in some sence permanent, e.g. DSN for an ODBC connection you don't want to ask the user for each time the loader is invoked. Values collected are preferably stored in the registry for later access.

  • Windows sockets

    If you intend to load data from a network using sockets, check this option, and Windows sockets will be initialized.

  • File loading support

    Check this box if you want to load data from a local file. The wizard will add a file dialog to the project, which is invoked when the user starts the loading process.

  • Custom menu support

    This is an advanced option. If enabled, the plugin will supply a menu for each loaded theme, and also a custom event handler function.



ShapeUp Exporter Plug-in Wizard 

The exporter wizard is used to create a plug-in for exporting data from ShapeUp into custom formats.


Application Settings 

Supported objects 

  • Points

    Check this box if you want to support export of point layers.

  • Polylines

    Check this box if you want to support export of polyline layers.

  • Polygons

    Check this box if you want to support export of polygon layers.

Additional features 

  • Settings dialog

    This option will generate an empty settings dialog which the user can access from the settings button on Tools | Options | Plugins | Exporters page. Enable this feature if you have settings that are in some sence permanent, e.g. DSN for an ODBC connection you don't want to ask the user for each time the exporter is invoked. Values collected are preferably stored in the registry for later access.

  • Windows sockets

    If you intend to export data over a network using sockets, check this option, and Windows sockets will be initialized.

  • File support

    Check this box if you want to export data to a local file. The wizard will add a file dialog to the project, which is invoked when the user starts the exporting process. The default behavior will open this dialog for each theme exported. If all layers should be exported to the same file, still check this option, but make sure you read the comments in the source files.

  • Thumb nail map image support

    If this option is checked, sample code will be added to show how to call ShapeUp to generate a thumb nail image around a specified position.



ShapeUp Statistical Plug-in Wizard 

The statistical wizard is used to create a plug-in to perform various calculations on attribute data.


Application Settings 

Features 

  • Toolbar button

    Statistical plug-ins are normally invoked from the Table menu. But they can also add a button to the ShapeUp statistical toolbar for quick access. Check this option if you want such a button.

  • Settings dialog

    This option will generate an empty settings dialog which the user can access from the settings button on Tools | Options | Plugins | Statistics page. Enable this feature if you have settings that are in some sence permanent, e.g. DSN for an ODBC connection you don't want to ask the user for each time the plug-in is invoked. Values collected are preferably stored in the registry for later access.
