Toolmanager question

Nov 20, 2011 at 7:30 PM

On the latest dotspatial release (RC2), I can't find the option Tool directories in the toolmanager, as shown on the screen cast. How do I set it properly, so I can use tools that are provided?

You don't need to set Tools directories any longer. I'll look at creating new documentation in this regard. Just include a Tools.dll in the Plugins or Tools folder.

Looking forward for documentation as I am confused. I added existing item (tools folder) in my solution but nothing happened... Thank you

ytlee - just go into the dotspatial folder and copy the tools folder into your project's plugins folder.
