Start all your macro captions with a special character so they appear first in Trimble Business Center All Commands list in the Command pane (e.g., _My Macro)
Start all macro code with: “import clr”. This adds the .NET environment.
Know the name and assembly of classes you are working with
a. clr.AddReference("Trimble.Vce.Geometry")b. from Trimble.Vce.Geometry import Point3D
Use the Object Browser to see classes and methods.
The path to the macro must match what TBC is looking for, so open the file directly from C:\ProgramData\Trimble\MacroCommands.
If needed, set breakpoints in macros in the same way as in as C#. F5, F9, F10 all work the same way. In VS, select Debug > New Breakpoint or press Ctrl + B.
In the debugger, you can see the current value of variables.
If you make a change to a macro (or its .xaml file), restart the command in Trimble Business Center to refresh it.
On command start, the current file’s Modify date is checked. If needed, the macro is ‘recompiled’.
Online WPF documentation is helpful (and required). See Resources.
