Im trying to create both a vst3 plugin and a standalone application by using the same UIDESC file so I can reuse the gui. Is that something that is possible? I have a hard time making it work.
I create a blank new vst3 plugin with the vst3projectgenerator.
I build and run my plugin and it creates an empty black window.
I open the wysiwyg editor and just puts a label in the center with title “Hello Plugin”.
Everytime I build and run my plugin it displays it correctly with the label in the center.
I switch out the uidesc file (Window.uidesc) in the simple_standalone application to my uidesc file that has the centered label but the label ("Hello Plugin) is not displayed when running as a standalone. If I open the wysiwyg editor from the standalone application, the label is displayed inside the editor, but as soon as I close the editor the label is not displayed.
I use the Window.uidesc file that is working in the simple_standalone application that displays the label “Hello World”. If I use that uidesc file in my vst3 plugin, the label is not displayed in the plugin. But if I open the wysiwyg editor from the plugin the label is displayed inside the editor, but as soon as I close the editor the label is not displayed anymore.
Should a window that i displayed in a standalone application and vst3 plugin be compatible using the same uidesc file? I have a hard time understanding why my label are not displayed depending on how I create the uidesc file.
