CustomDSP.ExternalEditorShow method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

If available, shows/hides the editor (user interface) of the given external DSP effect.

The concept of "editor" implemented by external custom DSP effects is very similar to the concept of "editor" implemented by VST effects: as for VST effects, having an available editor is not mandatory but, in some case, it could be useful.

Information about the editor can be obtained through the CustomDSP.ExternalEditorGetInfo method.

 

For further details about managing a custom DSP effect refer to the How to manage custom DSP effects section.

For further details about methods related to the use of custom DSP effects refer to the CustomDSPs class.
