Details

MDG_GetProperty provides miscellaneous Add-In details to Enterprise Architect. This function is called by Enterprise Architect to poll the Add-In for information relating to the PropertyName. This event should occur in as short a duration as possible as Enterprise Architect does not cache the information provided by the function.

Values corresponding to the following PropertyNames must be provided:

  • IconID - Return the name of a DLL and a resource identifier in the format #ResID, where the resource ID indicates an Icon; for example, c:\program files\myapp\myapp.dlll#101
  • Language - Return the default language that Classes should be assigned when they are created in Enterprise Architect
  • HiddenMenus - Return one or more values from the MDGMenus enumeration to hide menus that do not apply to your Add-In. For example:

 

if( PropertyName == "HiddenMenus" )

   return mgBuildProject + mgRun;
