I'm trying to get to grips with Extension Builder. I have fairly simple needs - however they go beyond the ability of Configurator. I'm comfortable with jsx scripting and configurator, and develop in Delphi - so I'm not a total beginner - although with action script / Extension Builder I am.
I'm struggling to find the correct resources to get me started as it's not clear to me exactly what I need to learn. Should I be looking for a Flashbuilder application guide - or shoudl I be looking for some other book?
To provide a little more context - I want to create is a menu that's populated when photoshop starts with text from a file. Looks like the pop-up menu in a panel is the component to do this - but I need to learn how to read the file and populate the menu and assign actions. The menu items should then call a jsx code (or other method of shelling out if required) with a parameter. So if the text file contains:
'Text Item 1',1
'Text Item 2',2
'Text Item 3',5
Then I want three menu items labelled 'Text Item 1', 'Text Item 2' and 'Text Item 3' where selecting the menu items calls a jsx with parameters 1,2 and 5 respectively. I've happily done this in Bridge using a jsx script - but doing this in photoshop seems a different kettle of fish...
So - are there any recommenations for dummies guides to help me through this?
thanks in advance!
