A fellow c# developer developed a ArcMap AddIn, but he has now left the business.

I have acquired his laptop with the VS2010 and ArcMap 10.1. I can create the Esri Addin File. Import it into the '~/Documents/ArcGIS/AddIns/Desktop10.1' folder.

It works fine on his machine.

I have installed ArcMap10.1 and the .netFramework on my PC imported the Addin File into the same folder. But the command button does not appear, so I cannot select it.

it appears in my extension list and is selected. it appears in my add-In Manager but still the button does not appear when I search for it in the command list.

Please can someone point me in the right direction as to figuring this one out. I think that something is not installed but I cannot figure out what that may be.

  • are you looking the proper category in the Customize --> Commands dialog for the addin? By default, they go to "Add-In Controls" if not specified in the Config.ESRIAddinx file. You my try looking in there too and see where its being dropped.. – ericoneal Oct 5 '15 at 17:52

    @Easty , You don't have to import anything. simply double click the addin file and it get installed. There is probably something wrong with your Config.esriaddinx file. Please include the part that is related to this button in your question. – Farid Cheraghi Oct 5 '15 at 17:59
  • Thanks Guys and forgive my ignorance. I have added the Config.esriaddinx file. However I dont think the button is in there. I have a BaseCommand Dialog. I think that is where the button is attached. I will post this file. Other than this I only have a form that is opened when the button is clicked. – Easty Oct 8 '15 at 10:12

You need to add the toolbar(s) and button(s) to the config file, as shown below.

  <AddIn language="CLR" library="xxxx.dll" namespace="xxxx">
    <ArcMap>
      <Commands>
        <Button id="My_Button" class="MyButton" message="TODO" caption="TODO" tip="TODO" category="TODO" image="Images\xxxx.png" onDemand="false" />
      </Commands>
      <Toolbars>
        <Toolbar id="My_Toolbar" caption="TODO" showInitially="true">
          <Items>
            <Button refID="My_Button"/>
          </Items>
        </Toolbar>
      </Toolbars>
      <Extensions>
        [your extension info]
      </Extensions>
    </ArcMap>
  </AddIn>
