O.P. Plugin Reloader :: The next generation
Ok so plugin reloader that i made aaaaaaaages ago works ok, but i wanted to make it better, so i did :P

This new version will toast on plugin unload and reload if you set it to, with a customized message for each event \o/

hmmz.. ok i managed to summarize it in like a line and now it doesnt seem as impressive as i thought it was when i started this post.

Ah well, its worth the download for any plugin developer at least :P



Find attached Plugin Reloader.zip
Please refer to readme.txt for installation and usage instructions

Great , this is a very useful tool for when I am making my plug-in. :grin:

Could it be possible to do....

/xreload <file path here>?

That would add the file designated in the file patch to the Plug-ins folder? (If it was already there replace it automatticlly?)


It would be just simply grand!

Yah thats what you do :grin:

/xreload (DLL Path)

First it unloads them all (Like it would)

*This part has nothing to do with the API or any of that just plain code....

It copys the dll to the folder

It reloads them all

You just use the same code but inbetween unload and reload make it copy the file path the plug-in got to to the plug-ins folder ?

Possible?

O.P. RE: Plugin Reloader :: The next generation
you can do this with a quicktext i think maybe... you should be able to run the DOS COPY command via run i belive, which takes the form

code:
C:\Documents and Settings\optimism_>copy /?
Copies one or more files to another location.

COPY [/D] [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/A | /B ] source [/A | /B]
     [+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B]]

  source       Specifies the file or files to be copied.
  /A           Indicates an ASCII text file.
  /B           Indicates a binary file.
  /D           Allow the destination file to be created decrypted
  destination  Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new file(s).
  /V           Verifies that new files are written correctly.
  /N           Uses short filename, if available, when copying a file with a
               non-8dot3 name.
  /Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
               existing destination file.
  /-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
               existing destination file.
  /Z           Copies networked files in restartable mode.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.  Default is
to prompt on overwrites unless COPY command is being executed from
within a batch script.


hence
code:
/xreload
#/CopyPlugin /run COPY /Y "<source plugin>" "C:\program files\messenger plus! 2\plugins"


should do the trick maybe

O.P. RE: Plugin Reloader :: The next generation
all it does is tells messenger plus! to reload the plugins using the information in the API.

If messenger crashes it is because one or more of the plugins dies. Therefore, you gotta do try each dll out, see which one causes the error.

rename ALL dlls except pluginreloader.dll to .dl.bak.
then reload
then rename ONE dll at a time back to .dll and reload again

When messenger crashes, the dll that you just renamed is the one that isnt working properly. You should upgrade or delete this plugin.
