Calling plugin A within plugin B

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)
