I'm writing an add-in for SolidWorks 2010 (C#).
Previously I've made a (working) plugin for SolidWorks 2008, here is a part of is's code:
public class SWIntegration : ISwAddin
public SldWorks mSWApplication;
private int mSWCookie;
private TaskpaneView mTaskpaneView;
private SWTaskpaneHost mTaskpaneHost;
private void UISetup()
mTaskpaneView = (TaskpaneView)mSWApplication.CreateTaskpaneView2("", "Plugin Title");
mTaskpaneHost = (SWTaskpaneHost)mTaskpaneView.AddControl(SWTaskpaneHost.SWTASKPANE_PROGID, "");
mTaskpaneHost.pSWApplication = mSWApplication;
The problem I'm facing is the following: mTaskpaneHost is null, so there is nothing but the title (Plugin Title) in the right panel.
The decaration of the TaskpaneHost class:
public partial class SWTaskpaneHost : System.Windows.Forms.UserControl
They say, SolidWorks 2010 doesn't support System.Windows.Forms.UserControl.
So, what should I do to make my plugin to work in SW 2010?
Thanks to everyone!
