I started with the Shockwave Plugin. After the first steps with your sharpDelvelop templates and doing some little operations with it… I converted the shockwave active X to the dotnet 2.0 interface an implemented the component into a simple window.forms with the formsdesigner.
Now my questions:
how can I implement these activeX in your template. is it possible to integrate form like in normal windows apps?
how can I pipe the graphic area from the activeX component to an node output?
next I try to define the input pins for the component…
as bjoern mentions there is no “image” pin type yet. it is also not planned yet.
i am not familiar with the shockwave activex control. does it offer a function that returns the current image? or at least does it allow you to kind of PaintTo() to a windowhandle (as that is what our flashrenderer does).
so what you could try is make your plugin output the windowhandle (as integer) that you feed into the ScreenShot nodes Handle pin. then as Mode you select “ClientAreaOfHandle”. but note, that the handles window must be visible, as this node only takes a screenshot of the handles area on screen.
right. WindowOfHandle and ClientOfHandle are not implemented. if you know of code that can screenshot handles that are not visible please link me to it. i only found very complex code i didn’t have the time to try yet.
