I have a VB.net scrip that I would like to run from the toolbar. In VBA, you would create a buttton that would collect the xy coordinates and pass the variables to the script for running. I can't seem to figure out how to pass the variables. When i create a button and click, the script ask for the variables before I have time to click the map.

Here is an example of the script I am using:

Thanks a bunch!


  • VB.NET script? I don't think such a thing exists. Are you sure you are talking about VB.NET? – stakx Feb 20 '12 at 8:34

It sounds like you need to create a UIToolControl not a UIButtonControl. UIToolControls events interact with the view.

For walk-thru of how to build a button using the "Add-in" technique see ESRI's example, which is mentioned as a resource in answering a previous question on this site that may be of use to you.

  • I believe Heather is attempting to add the script to a VBA toolbar, not an add-in. – artwork21 Feb 20 '12 at 3:17
