Building GUI tools for Ruby SU

ruby

#1

I want to know if there is any other tool enable building GUI for SU plugins other than web dialogue or standard tools bars


#2

Only the very simple text InputBox. Look it up in the Sketchup Ruby API - Google for that.


#3

HtmlDialogs introduced to replace WebDialogs in v17 are a very powerful alternative…

once we all work out how to use them well…

I’m considering a standalone executable program for my next project. It will communicate with SketchUp via a TCP socket. The benefit to me it being able to program in an environment I’m more comfortable with rather than HTML/Java Script. The downside is that separate apps need to be compiled for Windows and Mac.

Check out this thread for an example using a TCP socket.TCP Socket Example
