It is only an extension of the IA plug-in architecture, allowing for C# plug-ins.
It is not a bridge between IA and any C# dll.
Keeping that in mind, unfortunately, you are the one to write the GUI part for your plug-in.
Thanks for this post as it has clarified a number of issues I had with this whole thing.
As I now know, .Net Bridge is not a plug-in at all but a seemingly very useful tool enabling C# developers to now design their own plug-ins.
You can no doubt appreciate my disappointment as I renewed my IA subscription primarily on the email's sent to me by IA indicating at least to me that it was a plug-in. Particularly:
IA - Jason Strathmore wrote:The new .NET Plug-In Bridge enables managed code plug-ins to extend the InstallAware IDE and built setups.
Obviously this appealed to me greatly as I don't have the time to spend on creating/designing IA plug-ins.
There is a commercial opportunity for someone to build the GUI and I hope it may not be to long in the making.
Thanks for your contribution. I hope you have been appropriately rewarded for your efforts.
I look forward to seeing Franscesco's efforts.
