I am working on an audio plugin. It is almost done. It is working in Windows and Mac. Now I am trying to build the IOS version. I have some problems about the GUI and the file paths.
- Gui problems:
it works in ipad versions
But in iphone, some of my knobs are not moving.
some of my knobs are not moving .
My main window is 1000x600px
I know that i should modify it to be a wide screen so that it can fit properly in DAWs. For example 1000x400px
In both standalone and auv3, the CPU usage is about 100%. I think it is hard to run these plugins in ipad and iphone. I checked some other standalone and auv3 plugins. Some of them has the same issues. Especially in iphones , some of buttons and knobs are not working.
- File paths:
I am trying to save my presets(xml files with a certain extension like “.mypreset” ) in a folder. The file chooser is working. I am able to save them but after saving, my combobox cannot find them.So i cannot load them to combobox .Also after saving a preset, when i open the file chooser again, it does not see the previous one. I am able to see them when i use the ordinary file browser app but they are not visible when i try to save another preset within my plugin.
This is the path that i am using.
file = File::getSpecialLocation(File::userApplicationDataDirectory).getChildFile("MyPlugin");
Is this the correct path that will take me to “On My Ipad” then into MyPlugin?
How do you guys deal with paths in IOS?
I also have a config file. It is invisible but it works. I am using the same path. It is saving it somewhere in ipad, i use the same path to check it for license. It is working but when it comes to presets , combobox cannot find them in that directory.
this is the path for scanning the presets
Array<File> presetList; File file =File::getSpecialLocation(File::commonDocumentsDirectory).getChildFile("MyPlugin/Presets/.a").getParentDirectory().getFullPathName(); #if JUCE_IOS file = File::getSpecialLocation(File::userApplicationDataDirectory).getChildFile("MyPlugin"); #endif //fill presetList array with xml files file.findChildFiles(presetList, File::findFiles, false, "*.LLpreset");
In the picture there is no a folder but when install my plugin it creates a folder named MyPlugin.
Could you please help me to find the correct paths for the IOS?
Thanks in advance
