Due to popular demand I have expanded the Set Toolbar Size feature from v0.2 to optionally set the size for ALL accessible toolbars in the IDE!

At the moment there are two known exceptions:
1. The “Application Editor” is not available for manipulation by addins at this time
2. The ”Entity Browser” for individual tables in the DCT Explorer does not refresh correctly. This means that when you double click on table for editing the toolbar of the new tab will not resize until a focus change event occurs.

How To:

  1. Download the latest version of MainToolbarExtras.sdaddin
  2. Install or update using the addin manager
  3. Restart the IDE
  4. Right click on the Main Toolbar (anywhere) to get a context menu like this:image

As well as the feature included in v0.1 of this addin you can now define the size of the main toolbar and icons!

This, and all addins found on this site, work fine in both Clarion 7 and Clarion 8.

How To:

  1. Download the latest version of MainToolbarExtras.sdaddin
  2. Install or update using the addin manager
  3. Restart the IDE
  4. Right click on the Main Toolbar (anywhere) to get a context menu like this:

    Right click on the Main Toolbar to bring up the context menu...

    Set the Size of the icon and the height of the toolbar from here!

SoftVelocity sent out an “Early Release” of Clarion8 yesterday. So far it seems that all the addins found here work fine.

However, since Clarion 8 creates a new config directory you will have to reinstall your addins.

There are two ways to do this:

  1. Download and install addins again using the Clarion 8 Addin Manager

    OR

  2. Copy the Addin folder from %appdata%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\7.0\ to %appdata%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\8.0\

 

Some of the changes in C8 make some addins redundant (such as the fixed F1 context sensitive help, yay!) and others duplicate parts of ClarionEdge addins, such as the Clear All button on the errors pad and the AutoSave addin for options (yay again!).

Over the next few weeks I will try to update the features where necessary to make them fit into the new IDE a little better.

This is a very basic addin which shows you how you can add additional items in the Quick Starts section of the New Solution, Project or Application dialog. It is based on the shipping quick starts found in the ClarionWin backend binding and hacked together to give you an idea of what is possible.

Disclaimer: I have not actually tested the code generated by this example project template but it should give you an idea of how it works!

New solution dialog showing the example quick start This example creates a new project/solution with basic INC/CLW files pre-loaded

There are a few things that are done incorrectly in this example, such as not using string resources for the prompts but you should get the idea. You can inspect the code once you have installed the addin by looking in the %appdata%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\7.0\AddIns\ folder or just extract the contents of the sdaddin package (it is just a zip file). There is no DLL associated with this, all you need is a .addin file which defines the search path for the XPT files which define the quick starts.
