NiXPS View 3.0 features: Scripting
An exciting new addition to NiXPS View v3.0 is its ability to run scripts.
Granted, this is a fairly technical feature, but it can be very useful to extend the NiXPS View applications with more 'vertical' features.
We leverage our NiXPS SDK in the scripting environment, and together with some hooks for the application, one can build fairly powerful scripts which very little coding.
To aid the development of scripts, we have started a wiki where we give a small introduction to how to get around making scripts for NiXPS View v3.0. You can find this at http://nixps.com/scripting
We are big proponents of 'learning by example', and for this we are posting example scripts on the wiki. This is a great way to experiment, and get the hang of writing small scripts.
And for technical help you could also post your question on the NiXPS mailing list
One of the first scripts that we are posting in the example section is a script that performs XPS imposition.
I'm going to write a bit more about this in a next blog post.
