Issue with addin command

Postby CrisisStudent » Sun Apr 04, 2021 6:51 am

Hi all,

I have problem with creating add-in for string objects using the addin command. Specifically, I run following command, that works for equation and VAR objects fine, but for string object it creates add-in that says the type is string, but the Menu/Procedure type says global, see attached picture.

addin(type="STRING",menu="Specifiation(s) evaluation",proc="speceval",docs=".\documentation\specificatio_evaluation.pdf",desc="performs evaluation of (forecasting properties of) identity(ies) and prepares report summarizing the results.",url="https://github.com/CrisisStudent/SpecEval/Package/SpecEval.aipz",version="1.0") ".\specification_evaluation.prg"

This is simply issue of the addin command, as I can create the add-in correctly manually.

I’m reasonably confident (although on vacation currently so can’t check definitively) that strong objects can’t have add-ins.

Sorry to disturb your vacation!

FYI, I am 100% sure I can create and run the add-in for the string objects, see picture below in terms of set up.
