Description

Get the localized name of a plug-in given its universal name.

When VectorWorks plug-ins are localized by distributors in other countries, their names are translated to the appropriate language. The plug-in file stores both the original universal name and this translated localized name. The translated name is displayed by the VectorWorks user interface instead of the original name. If a script needs to display the name of a plug-in in a dialog or message then it should call this function to determine the localized name. (Note that scripts will use the universal name to specify a plug-in when the name is not being displayed to the user.)

If the plug-in has not been localized, then this function will return the universal name.

FUNCTION GetLocalizedPluginName(
inPluginName  :STRING;
VAR outName  :STRING) : BOOLEAN;
def vs.GetLocalizedPluginName(inPluginName):
    return (BOOLEAN, outName)

Parameters

inPluginName STRING Universal name of the plug-in.
outName STRING The localized name of the plug-in

Return Value

Returns true if the specified plug-in exists, and false if it is not found.
