Hi there

This question already exist in forum but there are some functions which are not exist in DevKit 18 so please help.

Here is the code I'm using
Code:

   // Install menu handler 
   err = ACAPI_Install_MenuHandler (32500, APIMenuCommandProc_32500); 

   ... 


   return err; 
}      /* Initialize */

Hi,

you can read about this in the API DevKit documentation's "New API features in ArchiCAD 18" topic:
Resource chain is gone (also ACAPI_UseOwnResModule() and ACAPI_ResetResModule() along with it)
OS X internally maintained a stack of open resource files called the resource chain. Whenever you want to load a resource, the system searched downwards in this stack to find the resource in any of the open resource files below the current one.
We removed that implicit mechanism; you'll have to specify each and every time the resource module explicitly (usually with ACAPI_GetOwnResModule()).
So you should remove all of your ACAPI_UseOwnResModule() and ACAPI_ResetResModule() calls and then that problem will be solved

Constructor of DG::Palette has been changed (and all of other DG constructors too). Now you should use ACAPI_GetOwnResModule() when calling that constructor.
So please change this line in your code:
Palette::Palette(short resId) : DG::Palette(resId, PaletteGuid),
to this:
Palette::Palette(short resId) : DG::Palette(ACAPI_GetOwnResModule(), resId, ACAPI_GetOwnResModule(), PaletteGuid),
(You can find DG::Palette::Palette constructor in DGDialog.hpp header file.)

Regards,
Tibor

Thank you for the help.

Still I have question.

I tried to read documentation. But in documentation's example again with old methods which is not supported by DevKit18. Please kindly give me a small example. So I can understand how to do that with C++ class.

Today I implemented an example palette for you.
Note that this is a minimal example, just to show how to make custom C++ Palette class properly.
