Developing Add-Ons

1. Add-Ons

I'm trying to write an add-on based on the examples. (API Development Kit 12.2156)
but the example (e.g. Element_Test) doesn't seems to work (in DEMO mode).
for example: ACAPI_Element_Create returns an error APIERR_REFUSEDCMD.
What am I doing wrong?

2. Add-On menu items are disabled.

The add-on menu items are disabled when a model is closed.
Is there a way to enable them?
Where can I find the full documentation of the the grc file?

Thanks

Have you perhaps not called ACAPI_OpenUndoableSession first?

Not that I know of.

Unfortunately this can't all be found in a single document. The bulk of it is in the Dialog Manager documentation. There is some quite important stuff under the section Required Resources in the main API documentation too.

Thanks a lot, Ralph! That was a million dollars answer! I spent 3 days puzzled my head about what's wrong with ACAPI_Element_Change function!
