we have to extend oxygen with a new, java-based action. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible and need a hint where to start.
We have to manage a list of UNICODE Characters together with some properties. We made a simple schema and a document instance, something like this:
Code: Select all
<char codepoints="000A" subcategory="CONTROL" name="LINE FEED" blockName="BASIC_LATIN"/>
<char codepoints="000D" subcategory="CONTROL" name="CARRIAGE RETURN" blockName="BASIC_LATIN"/>
(In reality there are much more properties, only some of them from unicode character database).
I'd like to extend Oxygen, so that, after choosing a new menu item, a form pops up where i can enter the hexcode of a new charcter. After doing so a new text fragment for the character shall be generated and inserted, with properties filled from some JAVA Code (UNICODE Properties of JAVA char datatype).
Im pretty sure this can be done, but where to start? Is it a Oxygen plugin, or is it something for authors SDK? Do you have samples which behave similar, so that i could learn from them? The whole thing could be done in text view as well as in author view.
Thanks in advance,
