Plugin Folder?
« on: February 27, 2011, 01:53:53 AM »
I am trying to follow the tutorial for creating and using a plugin from the quickstart manual.  Seems like maybe the tutorials aren't quite up to date but at any rate I followed it and everything seemed fine except I can't seem to get 5 beeps to sound only one happens for some reason.  I've checked the script and seems to be the way it is in the pdf.  The plugin runs just fine except for that.  The other thing I can't figure out is how to get Creator to recognize the plugin... There seems to be two plugin folders, one in the application folder and another in "my HyperNext" documents folder... When I followed the next tutorial for using a plugin in Creator and tried to "run program" it found an error in the script for one of the buttons saying that it couldn't find process...
Any help would be extremely appreciated!  Thanks!

I have just tried this and I only got one beep as well - on Mac G4 running OS X 10.5.8

To get it to sound the 5 beeps I had to place a Wait command inside the FOR loop so the loop would yield time to the OS - in the exampe, below it waits for 1 second.

Code: [Select]
for n=1 to num
    Beep
    Wait(1,1000)
endfor

The Developer should place plugins inside the plugins folder inside My HyperNext folder.

Also plugins need enabling - do this via the Preferences option on the Edit Menu.
