What is the second parameter for on Catalog.Import(path, int)?

I'm trying to import a file via .NET Interop and it isn't giving me the option to use the one parameter form of Import(path). I'm not sure what to put there, and so far everything I've tried doesn't work. This is the last stumbling block to my DNG converter program for iView.

Thanks,

Brian

OK, I'm answering my own question. It would seem that prior to version 427B, nothing worked. With version 427B (and 3.01b1) I can use whatever number I want. Also, the correct value to use in interop is System.Reflection.Missing.Value

Well, problem solved. I'll hopefully have a working program for people to try out tomorrow.

If anyone is actually reading this, it is possible to write actual plugins for Media Pro? I'm writing a standalone program, but it would be great if there was a more robust plugin architecture besides scripts.

Hi,

If anyone is actually reading this, it is possible to write actual plugins for Media Pro?

Of course we're reading this, you're not alone Brian. Although as a Windows user we sometimes do feel that way :).

Alex Havrylyuk wrote a plugin called iImport for MediaPro 2.6 written in Delphi 6. Alex no longer develops iImport and I haven't seen him here for a long while.

Thanks for the link. I wish I had seen that 15% discount a few weeks ago.

I still have some questions, feature requests for iView:

I just came across the need to be able to select a file (thus getting back a MediaItem) in the catalog based upon filename. I don't see any way of doing this at the moment.

Will the object model be updated with IPTC Core support? This would be very nice.

One last question, was the iImport program launched separately from iView or did it integrate somehow?

Thanks!

Does anyone know if there is going to be an iImport that works with V3? If so, the Multi Folder feature that DLP uses would be very useful...great time saver.

Hi,

The last time I checked, no. iImport development has pretty much stalled. I'll contact Alex again and let you know here.

If so, the Multi Folder feature that DLP uses would be very useful...great time saver.

Do you mean import sub-folders, or download to separate folders based on tokens?

In downloader pro it is a plug-in. You can pre name a few subfolders and it makes these for every new down load date...pretty nifty! Then when you are processing images you have pre-made folders to place the new images. Example- web, print, edited, etc.

Hi,

iImport will be updated for MediaPro 3 when iView update their API. According to Alex the API documentation in 3 is older than v2.

The feature request for iImport to automatically append download folders is best sent directly to Alex: ahavriluk at yahoo dot com. Like iView, Alex has always been very responsive when it comes to user suggestions.

HTH.

In the scripting manual 1.1, it states the 2nd parameter in Import() Method is "The location in the catalog where to import the media items"

I thought inserting the corresponding integer for the subfolders in my catalog set would move the imported item there, but no matter what number i put as the 2nd parameter, it goes to the same place.

I would have to use Catalog.Import() and then use MediaSet.Add() to put it where i want it to be in the catalog set.

So what exactly does the 2nd parameter do? If i dont put a number there iView crashes.
