cmd.bookmarksView.pages.extract dialog default values

Post by jusWest » Tue Oct 29, 2019 10:48 am

Hello!

I'm calling this command "cmd.bookmarksView.pages.extract" to extract selected bookmark pages .

In the dialog that pops up, we need to change some default values, so users dont need to change them later.

I found some code on the forum for CropPages, and adapted that code to create this class:

Code: Select all

    public partial class ExtractPagesEventMonitor : IUIX_EventMonitor
    {
        private int m_nID = 0;
        public ExtractPagesEventMonitor(int nID)
        {
            m_nID = nID;
        }

        public void OnEventMonitor(IUIX_Obj pTarget, IUIX_Event pEvent)
        {
            if (pEvent.Code == (uint)UIX_EventCodes.e_ShowModal)
            {
                IntPtr outPtr;
                pTarget.QueryImpl(typeof(IUIX_Dialog).GUID, null, out outPtr);
                IUIX_Dialog dlg = (IUIX_Dialog)System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetObjectForIUnknown(outPtr);
                if (dlg == null)
                    return;

                if (dlg.ID != m_nID)
                    return;

                //dlg.CheckItem("RangeCtl.Current", 1, true);
                //dlg.CheckItem("crop.Redaction", 1, true);
            }
        }
    }


And then I created the code for calling the dialog:

Code: Select all

                    ExtractPagesEventMonitor extractPages = new ExtractPagesEventMonitor(pdfCtl.Inst.Str2ID(""));
                    uiInst.CurrentThreadCtx.RegisterEventMonitor(extractPages);
                    pdfCtl.Inst.ExecUICmd2("cmd.bookmarksView.pages.extract");
                    uiInst.CurrentThreadCtx.UnregisterEventMonitor(extractPages);

I now need to know what to put here:

Code: Select all

 ExtractPagesEventMonitor extractPages = new ExtractPagesEventMonitor(pdfCtl.Inst.Str2ID("WHAT GOES HERE"));
And:

Code: Select all

WHAT HOES HERE?
//dlg.CheckItem("RangeCtl.Current", 1, true);
//dlg.CheckItem("crop.Redaction", 1, true);

another query trying to set the values for the following edit field:

Filename:

Code: Select all


dlg.SetItemCueText("dep.eFileName",  _fileName);


Is this the correct way to set the value?

It does noe work for me...

Hello jusWest,

The Cue text is the text that is displayed in grey when no real text is entered.

Hello jusWest,

First, let's try setting the text of that item - via the SetItemText method and see whether it works.

Hello jusWest,

Wow that's odd, can you please make me a small project that I can investigate to recreate this behavior?

Here is a small project that replicates the error, at least for me.

just change the pdf path, its in the debug folder.

CTRL-B for bookmarks, and activate a bookmark and press button

Hello jusWest,

We'll be holding a release in a couple of days, so I will tend to this after we have deployed it.

Hello jusWest,

I've investigated this one - there was an infinite cycle inside - if you add pEvent.Handled = true; at the end, everything will work OK.
