    Hey, it's Sean Donnahoe, I know it's been a while since we've talked. This new job is very cool. I want to write a desktop app to display a chart from our electrical code book and have it change values based on user's selections. I am starting off by using a 2 column grid with user selection in column 0 and the data display in column 1.

    I'm wondering what would be the best way to display this data? I was thinking of embedding a grid in column 1 and filling it thusly by breaking it into smaller columns and rows. I also saw that there is a DataGrid, but am completely clueless as to how to use it.

    Any pointers?

    Hi Shelbym,
    I am playing with a docker in X8 (c#) and I faced a strange problem...
    All what I tested on the docker itself run well, but I make a button showing a form. On that form there is a textBox hoping to be able to ply with input text. The strange thing is that Corel application gets the typed keys even if the textBox looks to have focus and cursor is blinking inside it...
    Do you have an idea how to deviate the focus to the damn text box?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey, how's that cool macro comin'? The worldscale/object scaler macro? I was hoping for a mix between Brian's Worldscale macro (macromonster.com) and apply the set worldscale to the object.

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...

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:

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...

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...

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

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...
