Notepad++ Plugin development
I’d like to start Notepad++ Plugin development because i believe, that notepad++ is a great editor and all folks use it.
So i started one month ago from scratch following the Plugin Development instructions.
For that i used Visual Studio 2019 and file plugintemplate-3.1.zip
But Visual Studio did not like the NppPluginTemplate.vcxproj.
Finally i succeeded downloading a really old Template which i found in a youtube video and i got a resulting dll.(after manually fixinging my vs installation, adding lib.exe)
However it was 32bit and my Notepad++(64bit) would not load.
Could you please update the plugin development instructions and make them idiot-proof ?
I would really like to dive into that …
You may try the fabulous cookie cutter tools
Thank you for the cookiecutter hint.
I used it and installed it, but I cannot find the the sln file in my computer.
Where is it ?
it’s on the root folder.
Yes i found it in the meantime, thank you
Now i have my Notepad++ Plugin available inside Visual Studio 2017,
but it does not compile because there are no headers installed with
Visual Studio C compiler.
Which Component is missing to get the headers ? i cant sort it out.
Which header files are missing?
The last time I used the cookiecutter, it created all the files,
needed from Npp’s point of view, accordingly.
Thank you for your attention.
I am missing ALL included files. I could not find any header files in my VS2017 installation.
Thee Header files which i am actually missing) is:
ctype.h (included from winnt.h)
stddef.h (included from sci_position.h)
My VS 2017 is installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017
What is the correct place to source these include files from ?
thit sounds like that you did not select an SDK when you installed Visual Studio, could that be?
