Insert custom DLL function

Good morning,

 

I am starting to compile more custom functions. I thought it was possible to have these appear in the "insert function" action. However, these do not show up.  I did stumble on CustomFunctions =  to show the content.

 

Is this possible?  

 

This was a note from pre-Prime DLL construction:

 

Making the function available through the Insert Function dialog box In order to make a function appear in the Insert Function dialog box, you must provide information in the file USER.XML located in the subdirectory \DOC\FUNCDOC. Each function is an entry between <function> tag. Use the <name>, <category>, and <description> tags to specify the function name, its category, and its description as they should appear in the Insert Function dialog box. Between the <params> tag, indicate the parameters the function accepts. If you create a CHM Help file for your functions, use the <help_file> tag at the top of the XML file to provide the CHM filename. Use the <help_topic> tag between the <function> tag to specify the name of a help topic for a function.

 

Regards

I don't think Prime supports this; that is, I can't find it in the description anywhere.

 

 

Success!

I put a Mathcad enhancement request for this very feature as we have several Custom Function libraries with 50+ functions each.  Please go to the Mathcad Ideas area and vote it up.   (Link)
