Plugin
 
I'm trying to make a plugin with Visual Basic 2010. But zmud always tells me it's not a valid plugin.
What do I need to do to make it a valid plugin?

I assume you've seen the zmud com plugins article ( http://www.zuggsoft.com/page.php?file=zmud/complug.htm ), but essentially you need to implement the entire COM interface.

You're trying to use calls on zMud-supplied objects or trying to implement a plugin interface?

How far did you get and what went wrong?

Scirkhan seems to have move on to other things.

Were you trying to do something similar?

The steps for a plugin in VB are basically:

New project which is a DLL/class library
Add a reference to the zMud COM interface
Create a publicly creatable class, say CMyPlugin
This class should implement each of the calls you can see in the object browser for zMud's plugin interface (the one for the plugin, not the one for zMud itself)

By implement, I mean that the call should exist: most plugins probably don't need to use all of the calls. So, the function body of a particular call you don't need might be empty.

I belive that Zor posted a full tutorial in VB6 some time back.
