I am Very new in Creo Automation. I want to develop a plugin application in Creo using VB API but i didnt find a sample application or proper steps to do the same.
Can you help me to achieve the same.
I have created windows application Which can Communicate with Creo. Now i want to convert it to plugin in creo ie. when i click on ribbon button my application need to execute whether it is (DLL /EXE). Is it feasible or any workaround to do so.
It's possible to run EXE files from a mapkey, see this thread: Re: a way to date / time stamp a drawing?
Such a mapkey can then be put on the ribbon menu.
The best way is to develop the plugin (auxiliary application) in Pro/Toolkit or Object Toolkit. Such an application can run as synchronous inside the Creo process.
Is it not possible through VB API ?
because i have already created application in VB API and i dont want to spend much time for Plugin in other language
