This is from the Macro Language. http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/MacroLanguage2

The K-Meleon Plugins


plugin( PLUGIN, COMMAND ); Since version 0.7


pluginmsg( PLUGIN, COMMAND, ARGS ); Since version 0.7



$REPLY = pluginmsgex( PLUGIN, COMMAND, ARGS, TYPE ); Since version 0.7

Runs a plugin command. The possible values of COMMAND, ARGS and TYPE depend on the specific plugin. See the complete list of plugin commands.

JamesD, thanks for trying to help. I'm aware of the available macro commands. My purpose is to call a plugin-command from within another >own written< plugin though. Maybe Dorian could be so kind to give an explanation how to do that. Thanks.

btw, also I managed to do what I wanted by using the GetID-function I'm not sure if thats the proper way.
In any case, whats the purpose of the BroadcastMessage-function?

You have to use SendMessage to send message to other plugin.

BroadcastMessage was used to send windows message to all kmeleon window. Not something you really want to use.
