Hello Ale,

below is an example how to call the "subdivide" plugin from the
tools plugins.

// Plugin names are lowercase
QString pName = "subdivide";
// get list of installed plugins
PluginManager& pluginManager(PluginManager::instance());
QStringList pluginNames(pluginManager.pluginNames(false));
// if your plugin is in the list
if (pluginNames.contains(pName))
	// get the plugin
	ScActionPlugin* plugin = dynamic_cast<ScActionPlugin*>
(pluginManager.getPlugin(pName, false));
	// now you can call the plugins "run" method
	// with your doc as argument
	if (plugin)

Hope that helps.

Franz Schmid
