Software Development Kit - User Manual


The Tinman 3D SDK contains several GUI widgets, which can be used as plug-and-play components for other applications.

Every widget implements the IWidget interface. Widgets are assembled into an IApplication object, which is then run by an application-defined host.

The following pre-defined application hosts are available:

If you get errors when loading one of the above controls into the GUI designer of your IDE, please build and run the corresponding demo first (e.g. Tinman.Demo.WinForms.CSharp). This usually fixes the problem.

The Workshop Application lets the user configure a Tinman.App object, uses the ConfigScript API to create an IApplication object from the config script source code and finally runs the resulting widget(s) in its WPF host.

Please refer to the help browser in the Demo Application for details on available GUI widgets.
