    Plugin Studio - Part 2


    Thought I would create a new thread as this is a different question...

    Finally got the Plugin Studio to work, but I have a few questions.


    - DOCUMENTATION??? I have looked everywhere I can think and there is
    virtually no documentation.
    - I understand that the Plugin studio may be just a basic interface,
    so is there another way to NPMs? I have looked around the developer
    site but I have found nothing useful.
    - It is possible to use the plugin studio to modify current tasks,
    (i.e. add a chapter/page to the Modify User Property Book)?
    - Failing that, it is possible to add chapters and pages to the
    custom plugins through plugin studio?
    - Failing that, it is possible to setup a table so that the
    attributes are just stacked vertically.
    - How is it possible to change the input method of an attribute?
    (i.e. I have a custom attribute which is boolean 1 or 0, but the only
    option in the studio is TextField, I would like a checkbox). I
    understand that I could manually export, edit the NPM and import but I
    was hoping for a more graceful solution. Also If I am to edit the
    JSP, what would I edit and what would I change it to?


    Thanks
    Bob

    While playing around I did figure out how to create a new Chapter and
    Page through the plugin studio. When creating the plugin you need to
    select "Property Book Page" for the Plug-in Type. Then associate it
    with an existing book.

    But I am still clueless about the other questions.

    Thanks
    Bob

    Yes, I share your pain with the docs (or lack thereof).

    Let me see if I can "scrub" my docs that I did and if you PM me your
    email address I'll send it to you. May be a week or so though as I have
    to be out of town for 5 days.

    You could massage Plugin Studio generated tasks, or check the iManager NDK

    No, Plugin Studio can modify Plugin Studio generated pages, only

    You've figured that out

    In Plugin Studio, you can choose between attribute labels left to or on
    top of the attribute values. Other than that, you could manually edit
    the generated JSP

    You can edit the JSP, but need a basic understanding of the JSP and
    Taglib concepts

    For the generated JSPs, check
    [tomcat]\webapps\nps\portal\modules\custom\skins\...



    In the past I've provided a couple of customization/developer workshops
    here in Europe. Since you're located in the area, this might be another
    option
