PluginHost Demo: Nested plug-in window problem


#1

I’m an JUCE Indie developer. This is my first message on the forum. Basically I just read and the information was enough. But now I need help, because I could not find a discussion of something like this on the forum.
I want to open the plugin windows inside the MultiDocument Panel. For this, I modified the JUCE PluginHost Demo a bit. But I can not make the plugin window be inside the document window. Is it possible to correct this behavior in some way?

Unfortunately because of the legacy techniques that plugins use to embed their content, you’re going to have a hard time putting them inside anything other than a floating desktop window. Many plugins will expect there to be only a minimal border between their own sub-view and the parent one, and if you start trying to get them to sit inside a big parent window and move around in it, things will go horribly wrong in many cases.

Thanks for the quick response Jules.
