    DOE: OLE Extension

    Overview
    The DOE: OLE Extension brings the ability to link to external URLs to Fantasy Grounds in the form of OLE Links. OLE Links can be manually selected and triggered by the GM.

    OLE Links are accessed via the DOE: OLE OLE List and GM-created MiniLists, lists of OLE Links able to be manipulated almost the same as any other Fantasy Grounds list of links.

    OLE Links can be used in Story and Notes Entries via the use of MiniLists which can be linked via the Link Paragraph Type. MiniLists can even be placed on Maps and Images as Map Pins. Basically, almost anywhere where you can use a Link in Fantasy Grounds you can use a MiniList.

    GM's can share MiniLists with Players.

    A screenshot is provided.

    Full details are provided in the accompanying Manual (a Module). The Manual can be opened by Fantasy Ground v3+ using any Ruleset, with or without the Extension being loaded.

    Version
    • 1.0.0 - Initial Creation
    • 2.0.0 - Compatibility Update and added OLELink Groups
    • 2.2.0 - Compatibility Update, Fixed issues with Simple Brown & Simple Gray Themes, add support for StarFinder Ruleset (Graphics still required)
    • 2.2.1 - Compatibility Update
    • 3.0.0 - Current - See Post #63


    Manual Version
    • 1.0.0 - Initial Creation
    • 2.0.0 - Compatibility Update
    • 2.2.1 - Current - Compatibility Update


    Rulesets
    This Extension works with:
    • CoreRPG Ruleset v3.3.8, CoreRPG Ruleset v3.3.9, and selected Child Rulesets.


    Dependencies
    This Extension is dependent on:


    Wiki Page & Full Documentation


    Rulesets By Dulux-Oz


    Other Extensions By Dulux-Oz


    Downloading The Extension
    This Extension and its accompanying Documentation can be downloaded from the links at the bottom of this post.

    Loading The Extension
    This Extension is loaded exactly like all other Fantasy Grounds Extensions - by first copying the .ext file to the Extensions Folder under the Fantasy Grounds Folder and then re-starting Fantasy Grounds. If the Extension is compatible with the currently installed version of a given Ruleset it will be displayed in the Extensions List for that Ruleset and can be loaded by clicking on the Checkbox next to the Extensions name.

    If the Extension has large red 'X' next to its name in the Extension List then the Extension or an Extension that this one is dependent upon is not compatible with the chosen Ruleset. Make sure that you have downloaded and installed the latest copy of this Extension and any Extensions this one is dependent upon.

    When Fantasy Grounds Updates
    After a Fantasy Grounds version update you should verify that all Extensions (not just this one) have been either updated themselves or verified by the Extension author that they work with the new version of Fantasy Grounds. If you have any issues with Fantasy Grounds after an update then it is best to disable all Extensions and then re-enable them one by one until the issue re-appears.

    ... Except when I get an error...

    CoreRPG brand new campaign, only DOE Base v2.0 and DOe OLE v1.0 loaded. When creating a new OLE link I get:

    Runtime Error: desktop: Unable to create window with invalid class ( : MJB_OLE.OLEList.id-00001)
    Script Error: [string "DOEBase/Scripts/lsLibMasterList.lua"]:63: attempt to call field 'fpSetRecordType' (a nil value)

    If you give the Extension a URL (any URL) you'll be able to open up that Webpage, pdf, video or whatever from inside FG.

    OLE = Object Linking and Embedding, a system that allows you to put an Excel Spreadsheet into a Powerpoint presentation (for example) - in this case its putting something accessed via a URL into FG.

    Does that help explain things?

    One more public service announcement on reading the wiki's!

    So, after searching and searching the buttons on fantasy grounds for the OLE list after installing the OLE extension and not finding it, I almost gave up and posted a question! However, after reading the wiki I saw that the OLE button is with the SMALL buttons at the top of the screen next to the combat tracker and not with all of the other large buttons!

    At least I figured it out before I posted the question!

    So I'm playing with this extension now and get that I can make clickable hyperlinks within fg which is cool. Is there anyway (assuming no, but ....) to say have the video launch within a embedded bordered window within fg so that it can play while we are still rolling dice within ft? Does that make sense? Right now, the video will launch and take over the monitor once clicked. Not a problem, just exploring...
