View list of data type meanings


Enables or disables the named plugin. An enabled plugin is "active", otherwise its triggers, timers and aliases are ignored.

You can use GetPluginInfo to see if the plugin is currently enabled.

If the plugin's "enabled" state changes (ie. from enabled to disabled, or disabled to enabled) then the appropriate routine in the plugin is called, if found ...

OnPluginEnable or OnPluginDisable

For example, you might have these routines in your plugin ...

sub OnPluginEnable
world.Note world.GetPluginName & " has just been enabled."
end sub

sub OnPluginDisable
world.Note world.GetPluginName & " has just been disabled."
end sub

VBscript example
world.EnablePlugin "982581e59ab42844527eec80", vbTrue
Jscript example
world.EnablePlugin ("982581e59ab42844527eec80", true);
