oXygen API Call to bring up Validation Panel?

Mon Oct 31, 2016 9:37 pm


We've been using oXygen's Custom Validation for a while, but recently updated to oXygen 18.

Previously, we had a separate button in the menu that writers could click, and it would activate the Custom Validation, do the validation, and bring up the panel. However, with oXygen 18, the button is not grouped in with the Validation button, essentially hiding the custom validation button and making it more work for our writers to use this custom validation.

Additionally, for oXygen 18, we wanted to add the validation to our customized drop-down menu, where the writers can access all the cusotmized tools we've created. While I've managed to integrate the validation tool into the menu, running the tool does not bring up the custom validation panel.

I have two questions:

1) Is there an API so that we can call up the custom validation panel when accessing the validation tool from a different location, say a customized menu?
2) Is there a way to get my customized validation tool to have its own button again, instead of being grouped with the validation button in the toolbar?

I would need to know more about your current solution. So your plugin adds a custom validation button on the toolbar. Can I get a screenshot as to the place where it does?
How does it do that, can I have some Java sample code for this? You also seem to have a custom validation view. How did you configure it in the plugin.xml? How do you set content to it? How do you show it from the Java code?
You can also contact us directly using support@oxygenxml.com if you consider that the code samples are confidential.

Thanks Radu, I'll email you some sample code and more about our situation.
