Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi everybody,

Where can I download API Reference Offline HTML or CHM file for reading without internet like as API Dev Kit Document file?

P/S: I'm a beginner and I don't know how to run Hello World code in the Blog post. Are there no any tutorials or videos for beginner have an easy way to begin API? And I'm searching in all of the posts in Developer Forum, I'm feeling so hard to begin Archicad API but I won't give up.

Thank you for any suggestions.

You can download the entire developer kit from the ARCHICAD API website. This contains all the documentation and a large number of example projects. Each example has a project that can be opened, built and used with ARCHICAD running as a demo. This is a good way to get started.

I assume you have either Visual Studio or Xcode (depending on which platform you're on)?

Thank you so much. But I'm using VS 2017 (no upgrade) to open .vcproj file then I built it but Build Error appears almost. Panel_Test file is built but when I imported it in AC, I didn't see anything (but Panel_Test has appeared in Add-on Manager)

It sounds like you have made a good start.

The Panel_test add-on displays additional panels in the standard Settings dialog, but they don't appear by default. You can turn them on using the Work Environment settings, e.g. Options > Work Environment > Tools Settings Dialog Boxes
