This is the material from Insights 2007 pre-conference SDK training session, including presentation, sample code, and plugin template.
This does contain new ACT! 2007 features / APIs, so remember that you are subject to the terms and conditions set forth in your Sage Software Small Business Division Add-on Partner Agreement for ACT! Software and/or your Sage Software Small Business Division Certified Consultant Agreement.
I did not have the chance to attend Xavier's session at Insights, but have reviewed the samples and the documentation provided. I have to say there are a few gems there for anyone writing add-ons. The 3 specific areas I found the most useful were: 1. Describing how to make a simple custom control that is aware of contact field changes 2. The logging part - how to get the Plug-in to log information in the ACT! error logs 3. Creating custom Dashboard components Great Work Xavier, Pierre
