FYI: IB 3 Palette plugins

  • I have not yet ported any of my IB palettes to IB 3 yet.  I attempted
    to do so with very early releases of Leopard, but there were too many
    bugs, so I held off.

    But, I'm going to start that task this coming week.  I'm no expert on
    palettes, but I'll try to post any hints or tips I learn along the way.

    My palettes contain container and non-container views, controls,
    cells, custom matrixes and formatters.  Also, I make heavy use of
    custom bindings.  If you have similar palettes under development,
    hopefully we can work out any kinks should we hit them.

  • I moved my IB2 plugins to IB3 in August. It actually was a pretty
    quick process, and the new plugin API is great. I did try to code so
    that I would have an IB2 and IB3 target for my SDK, but in the end I
    just ended up giving up in the IB2 plugin. It's an internal SDK we use
    at my workplace, and the other people who used the SDK where on
    AppleSeed anyway, so I just had them move to IB3.

    I think the best part about IB3 is that when creating your object's
    inspector, it just stacks on top of all the inspectors for your
    subclasses. That was one thing that really annoyed me about IB2.

    Howdy Ricky (and other interested devs).

    I have a very preliminary version of of an IB3 plugin for RBSplitView available on my site:
    http://www.brockerhoff.net/src/rbs.html (compiled only.)

    The code is still too ugly for general release. I haven't a clue how to get undo/redo working, for instance. I'll be glad to swap source code so we can pool our experiences and then release a better-debugged version.
