Plug-in development

 

Visual Gene Developer allows users to develop new plug-ins for the 'Toolbox', 'Layer view manager', and 'mRNA structure viewer' windows.

Since plug-in is one type of sub routine modules, code development is almost the same like other modules such as 'Sequence optimization' or 'Constraint'. However, additionally a user has to register a certain module to a proper target place as a plug-in. As we mentioned, 'Layer viewer' , 'Toolbox', or 'mRNA structure viewer' window can be proper target places.

 

1. Toolbox

2. Layer view viewer (not supported yet)

3. mRNA structure viewer (not supported yet)

4. Custom UI form

 

 


 

o General procedure

Step 1: Develop module

   Decide target place of plug-in module

   Use classes to access to a target place

   There may be special requirements for module development

 

Step 2: Register module as plug-in

   Test module performance in the 'Module Editor' window

   If plug-in is unstable, re-design the module
