is it possible to Create dynamic outbound plug and it's navigation link?

Hi,

i am trying to create an outbound plug in runtime dynamically, is it possible?

I have found out how to create the outbound plug in wdDoModifyView: "<b>view.getViewInfo().createOutboundPlug()</b>"

but the problem is how do i set the plug name, and how do i create it's navigation link to bind him to an inbound plug in another view.

Thanks,

Carmit

    Hi Carmit,

    the following code snippet creates a link between a newly created outbound plug (outbound plug name is not really necessary) and an already existing inbound plug:

    /* targetViewInfo is the IWDAbstractViewInfo of navigation target
       srcViewInfo is the IWDAbstractViewInfo of navigation source 
       Find inbound plug, must exist */
    IWDInboundPlugInfo targetPlug = targetViewInfo.findInInboundPlugs(inboundPlugName);
    /* Create outbound plug with "automatic" name */
    IWDOutboundPlugInfo srcPlug = srcViewInfo.createOutboundPlug();
    /* Create link from out to in */
    IWDNavigationTargetReferenceInfo targetReferenceInfo =
      srcViewUsage.createNavigationTarget(srcPlug.getName(), targetViewUsage, targetPlug.getName());
    /* Fire srcPlug somewhere...*/

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Stefan
