how do i get a butons text from its id?

Postby S Pittaway on Sun Jan 31, 2010 7:34 pm

i wand to write a plugin command that would refresh a database, wait for the importstatus text to say scan completed, then do so other stuff...

but i have to admit that i cant see how to get the text of a button if i know its ID, am i missing something?

how do i get the text from importstatus into my plugin?


cheers, Sean.

you would probably have something like this :

if (xhelper.ConvertVariables("%importstatus>percent%") == "100%")
{
//do your thing
}

hope this helps, kris

i was trying to the Status: xxx text to tell when it was complete...

the the 100% works great (and is a lot easier)

Pitt, if u r interest about general solution, theres a l33t h4x0r way of doing it, kinda "we dont need no API"-aproach... if i remember right theres a little caveat though, aproach doesnt work with proper buttons but only with text fields. This semantic differense obviously does not play any role as long as u can craft the skin by yourself.

XPluginSDK.Button OurTextBox=SDKhelper.getButton(ID);
//next lets use toString to make XL leak
String notFinal=OurTextBox.toString();
//little trimming required
String finalAnswer =notFinal.Substring(6,notFinal.Length-7);

// have fun ;)
