Docker or Macro Installer

Posted 20-10-2012 at 19:26 by shelbym
Updated 27-03-2014 at 23:38 by shelbym

Introduction

Now that we have a docker or macro we may wish to install the macro or docker on one or several machines. While you could use the manual approach a simple installer would be nice so that a user could just run it and have the files installed for them. In this post we will build a simple installer that will install the docker or macro.

Needed Software

To create the installer we are going to need a couple of pieces of software, the good news...

Adding an Icon with your XSLT File

Posted 16-04-2012 at 15:47 by shelbym
Updated 16-04-2012 at 15:49 by shelbym

Introduction

We will be using the same XSLT files that we created last week, so if you have not read last week’s post you may wish to do that first.

We added a menu item to the Dockers menu for our new custom .NET docker, each new item added gets a default icon assigned to it as shown in the following screenshot:
Name:  menu.png

Size:  6.1 KB
This icon is boring and if you have a long list of custom dockers they all start to blur together. An easy way to fix this is to define...

Using XSLT files instead of VBA

Posted 09-04-2012 at 16:30 by shelbym

Introduction

Previously we have used VBA to load our .NET custom docker into the CorelDRAW UI. This article will show how this may also be done using XSLT files, very similar to the example Hendrik provided in his Custom Docker article: Custom add-ons and dockers in CorelDRAW

The "Addons" Folder

You customizations will need to be in the Addons folder, for X6 64-bit that folder is found here: “C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite...

Custom .NET Dockers in CorelDRAW X6

Posted 01-04-2012 at 23:38 by shelbym

Introduction

In the previous blog post we showed an example of a custom WPF control that was hosted in the UI of CorelDRAW. In this post we are going to take a Custom Web Docker that Hendrik had provided as an example and rewrite it as a Custom WPF .NET Docker. If you have never made a custom docker his article is a wonderful place to start. You may find it here: Custom add-ons and dockers in CorelDRAW

WPF User Control Library

Once again I will be using...

Custom .NET Controls in CorelDRAW X6

Posted 25-03-2012 at 22:24 by shelbym
Updated 26-03-2012 at 11:42 by shelbym
Tags .net, vba, wpf

Introduction

With CorelDRAW X6 you can now create custom .NET controls that can be hosted in either a custom docker or the UI itself, including toolbars and menus. I will be doing a few posts on exactly how this is done. For this post we will build our own slider control that will change the line width of the selected shapes.

WPF User Control Library

I will be using Visual Studio 2010 Professional to create the custom control. Start a new project, Visual...
