Use the description of Mr ChriZ to create a new Plugin. http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=32294.0

Autoresizing of plugin

Draw a Panel upon the UserControl and do the following:

  • Set 'Dock' Property to 'Fill'.
  • Set 'Autosize' Property to 'False'

Your Panel will now automatically be resized to fit into the MC Plugin Area. Anything you put upon the Panel can scale to the size of the Panel using the 'Anchor' or 'Dock' Properties. Don't use the 'Autosize' Property!

Handling an event

This is a C# sample on how to handle events fired by MC.

private void MJEvent(String s1 , String s2, String s3 )
{
    switch (s1)
    {
        case "MJEvent type: MCCommand":
            switch (s2)
            {
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_TRACK_CHANGE":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_ADDED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_INFO_CHANGED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_FILES_CHANGED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_REMOVED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_COLLECTION_CHANGED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;
 
                case "MCC: NOTIFY_PLAYLIST_PROPERTIES_CHANGED":
                    // Your code here
                    break;

                default:
                    // Unknown (new?) event
                    break;
            }
 
            break;
 
        default:
            // Unknown (new?) type
            break;
    }
}
