I have to build an add-in for ArcGIS Pro, I know that I have to use Pro SDK. But for start up I need an exe file that initiate a process to ask for required layer files to be loaded, when I give the files these files automatically open in ArcGIS Pro within a new map project.
What should I do for this? I can make an add-in but how do I make an exe file that starts ArcGIS Pro on click? does the Runtime SDK supports this kind of functionality?
P.S: I am doing this on C# platform using VS 2017.
Hello Jaewon -
It sounds like an ArcGIS Pro "Configuration" might fit your needs.
Please see the following:
ProConcepts - Configurations
ProGuide - Configurations
You should create a Pro Configuration. This is similar to an add-in but it allows you to customize Pro's start-up experience. Using a Configuration you will be able to show a custom start page when the application launches. In this custom start page, you can display a control to list your layers. When the layers are selected, you can initialize a Pro session - a New Map in your case - with the layers selected.
Here are some links that can get you started with this:
