THYSilverlightPluginDescriptor

Overview

The THYSilverlightPluginDescriptor class provides plugin descriptors for Silverlight plugins. In the Hydra framework, plugin descriptors are used to store specific plugin information like name or type.

Use Case

You will not use this class directly, to obtain information about plugins, you can use the THYPluginDescriptor. For example:

procedure TMainForm.ShowPluginInfo(Info: THYPluginDescriptor);
begin
  lbName.Caption := Info.Name;
  lbDescription.Caption := Info.Description;
  lbVersion.Caption := Format('%d.%d',[Info.MajorVersion, Info.MinorVersion]);
  case Info.PluginType of
    ptNonVisual: lbType.Caption := 'Non-Visual plugin';
    ptVisual: lbType.Caption := 'Visual plugin';
    ptService: lbType.Caption :='Service plugin';
    ptUnknown: lbType.Caption :='Unkwown';
  end;
end;
