the "space planner" stencil and addin
« on: February 23, 2020, 05:26:47 PM »
I was playing around with this and it has some very cool features!
I assume that the addon watches for particular shapes being moved and if they are moved within the boundary of the "space" shape then a cell is updated within them to indicate they "belong" to the shape they were just moved into.
The space explorer shows this heirarchy graphically. This could be VERY useful.
Does anyone know of any code that I could access that would get me on the way to creating my own implementation?

In what language would you expect the code to be? I.e. what programming languages would be acceptable for you? How much time do you have to spend on this?

I would guess the original "office explorer" window and extension was built around 25 years ago, probably with C++...

Well, dot net would be nice, but I better not hold my breath.
Not critical for me but would be nice. wish I had the knowledge to code it myself.
