GetUIModifications() as String



The GetUIModifications() method is called during initialization of the plug-in, to get the configuration XML data that defines the changes to the UI of XMLSpy. The method is called when the plug-in is loaded for the first time, and at every start of XMLSpy. See also Configuration XML for a detailed description how to change the UI.



Public Function IXMLSpyPlugIn_GetUIModifications() As String

  ' GetUIModifications() gets the XML file with the specified modifications of

  ' the UI from the config.xml file in the plug-in folder

  Dim strPath As String

  strPath = App.Path


  If Len(strPath) > 0 Then

     Dim fso As New FileSystemObject

     Dim file As file

     Set file = fso.GetFile(strPath & "\config.xml")


     If (Not (file Is Nothing)) Then

        Dim stream As TextStream

        Set stream = file.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading)


        ' this replaces the token '**path**' from the XML file with

        ' the actual installation path of the plug-in to get the image file

        Dim strMods As String

        strMods = stream.ReadAll

        strMods = Replace(strMods, "**path**", strPath)


        IXMLSpyPlugIn_GetUIModifications = strMods


        IXMLSpyPlugIn_GetUIModifications = ""

     End If

  End If

End Function
