[CS5]csxs::event is not  being register in  PostStartupPlugin()

Hi All,


I was looking in FreeGrid Plugin that uses flex for UI.To do so it register the csxs events (for communication b/w flex panel and c++ plug-in) in PostStartupPlugin().

here is the code..



ASErr FreeGridPlugin::PostStartupPlugin()


if(csxs::event::kEventErrorCode_Success == freeGridDialogController->RegisterCSXSEventListeners())

     fIsRegistered = true;


return kNoErr;



But it is not being registered here.

It also put the same code in handling the

    This is a bug in this sample - you should try to register your event listeners when you recieve a kAICSXSPlugPlugSetupCompleteNotifier notification, not post startup. You can add a notifier handle and listen out for it in the usual way - FreeGrid actually does this in addition to trying to register on PostStartup.


    We've already fixed this for the next release of the SDK - thanks for spotting it!

    My mistake - looks like there isn't a notification for this at all - I would try registering for event listeners as late as you can - it depends what your plugin is doing. Maybe take a look at how FreeGrid and StrokeFilter do it.

    I'm in the same boat.  Any word on when to register for these listeners?  I really need a Notifier that will allow me to do this before the user makes any moves.  Strokefilter doesn't provide any answers.

    It comes from David_a_Clark in another forum:

    "Ah, this is a known issue. For CS5 the workaround I used was to start an AI Timer in my plug-in's startup code which went off after '1 tick' (AI SDK terminology, IIRC). After 1 tick, PlugPlug has started up and is available to use.


    In the next version of AI SDK I believe there will be a 'PlugPlug set up' notifier which removes the need for the timer workaround."
