Is there a plugin interface in Toad for Oracle?




We want to get some missing functionality into Toad for Oracle. The goal is to add a menu entry that allows to access and modify the text in the editor.

Is there some documented plugin interface (like for Eclipse) to write extensions for Toad?

Toad still (2021) lacks a Plugin API or Plugin SDK for developing extensions for Toad.

Following official and not offical answer from Toad's forum:

No, we don’t provide an API for this, but Toad does support command line execution. That means you could call a specific function in Toad via the Automation Designer feature (read the Help) and perform a specific task.

Take a look at the Toad Help on Command Line Syntax and Execute Actions from the Command Line and let me know if this helps.

It sounds a little ironic because Now Toad itself has developed a Plugin for Microsoft SSMS. And it means that Toad uses Plugin API of other software extensively, not providing API itself.
