Custom Docked Window




See Also


Enterprise Architect enables a custom docked window to be add to Enterprise Architect and shown and docked in the same way as other Enterprise Architect docked windows.

A custom docked window must be designed as an ActiveX custom control and inserted through the automation interface.

ActiveX custom controls can be created using most well-known programming tools including Microsoft Visual Studio.NET. See the documentation provided by the relevant vendor on how to create a custom control to produce an OCX file.

Once the custom control has been created and registered on the target system, it can be added through the
AddWindow() method of the Repository object.

While it is possible to call AddWindow() from any automation client, it is likely that you would call it from an Add-In, and that Add-In is defined in the same OCX that provides the custom view.
