Hooking ArgGIS/RT applications

Discussion created by michael.robin@adapx.com on Oct 30, 2012
Is there any standard way to acheive code-injection into an pre-existing ArgGIS/RT application via the packaging of DLLs in the map package that wouldn't require modification/recompile of the application's code? The goal would be to extend the application with one or more context menu items on the MapControl (or other widget) that would invoke an action in the DLL and supply some context in the event, such as a reference to the MapControl. Or is it possible to get a moniker (or similar) to a running MapControl and manipulate it out-of-process? (I know ArcRT is not ArcObject/COM in architecture or intent, but perhaps there's something I'm missing to acheive general application extension.)
