I’m about to create a plugin which creates a table-grid based on data in a JSON-File.
The user selects a file and the grid is created. The name of the file is stored in the pluginData. The plugin should also provide a feature “Refresh table”, which should read the same file again and update the table-grid. For now this is not possible, because there is no way to get a file-Entry without a File-Dialog (at least I’m not aware of any API, which would allow that).
Maybe this restriction has security reasons, but since XD is a desktop application not a WEB-Site, I’d find that exaggerated.
an API-function like FileSystemProvider.getFile(nativePath) would be great.
