Re: [Plugin] MJGrudman_SPGears v1.3 - UPDATE

Postby Dan Rathbun » Wed Oct 27, 2021 9:04 pm



UPDATED - NO NEW FEATURES

Other authors were creating derivative extensions without differencing in a namespace wrapper of their own. This can cause clashing Ruby objects, ie classes. So ...

The following version preserves MJ Grundman's edition within a namespace module of MJG's own. Some general cleanup, a fix for the inputbox and some error handling for the command. Also made sure that no undo operation is left open as that emits warnings now (if an exception occurs before the operation can be committed.)

Packed up as a RBZ extension archive.

Again, ... NO NEW FEATURES, but you can now switch it on and off via SketchUp's Extension Manager or the SketchUcation PluginStore interface.

NOTE: Remember to delete (or move) the old "SPGears_mjg_v1.2.rb" file from your "Plugins" folder when running the update version.

# v1.3 : 2021-10-26 by Dan Rathbun
# - Properly namespace wrapped and packaged as a RBZ extension archive.
# - General cleanup of indents, extra long lines and empty space lines.
# - Corrected inputbox validation loop in SPGear::dialog().
# * Was calling the same method recursively and not restoring the
# users previous inputs.
# * Was using bad index to validate Bevel Angle results which did
# not cause the inputbox to redisplay allowing error in later code
# when the angle was out of range.

    Here's v1.4 RBZ, which fixes a tiny typo in a file-path setting up the extension...

    Thanks, TIG

    I have been chasing why I couldn't install this plugin. It kept appearing in the SketchUcation Extension Manager as Disabled Extensions and I couldn't change the setting.

    And maybe I missed the text, but it would help, if there was some indication where plugin/extensions are located.

    Again, thank you

    If you use the built-in Extension Manager you should be able to enable an extension, however an old extension like this is not 'signed' - so you will need the Extension Manager's settings 'Loading Policy' to be 'Unrestricted'...

    Most plugins have 'usage notes' explaining where to find and use the tools...

    In the case of this particular one it's spelled out in the first post of this thread...
    Menu Item : Plugins -> SPGears - in newer versions of SketchUp that menu was re-titled 'Extensions'...

    I used the extension manager and I had it to load unsigned plugins.

    Still, it would end up in the disabled section and I couldn't move it from there. Tried many times and many ways.

    However, I got it running now.
