Innactive controls in docked pallete

Anonymous

Hello Archicad developers!

I have an issue with a plugin which I'm developing for the windows version of Archicad 21.

The actual issue is that I have a dockable palette, created with DGCreateDockablePalette, which contains Icons and every Icon calls a function. If the palette is a free floating window when I click each Icon it calls the corresponding function, but I If dock my palette somewhere my Icons don't seem to work anymore. What could be the possible reason for this?

Also I have my plugin already working for the MacOS version of Archicad 21 and there isn't any problem with my palette, no matter if its docked or not.

Here is some of my code which calls the palette:

GSErrCode __ACENV_CALL MenuCommandHandler(const API_MenuParams *menuParams)
{


	if (menuParams->menuItemRef.menuResID == 32500) {
		GSErrCode errorCode = ACAPI_CallUndoableCommand("Importer",
			[&]() -> GSErrCode {

			switch (menuParams->menuItemRef.itemIndex) {
				//case  1: openWebView(); break;
			case 1: Do_PaletteInit(); break;
				//case  2: importFiles();break;
				//case  3: updateBuildups();break;

			default: return NoError;
			}
		});

		return errorCode;
	}
	return NoError;
}

	//

I have found the problem - when I replace the Icon with Button it seems to work. So now the question now is can I have buttons with images inside of them ?

The problem is solved by using IconButton, which wasn't needed in MacOS.

Still looking?
