I have a question about handling a custom file type. I wrote a small plugin to load a niche file format for a client. It will only be used internally at their organization. It works fine when called from a separate menu item, but they want to be able to drag these images into Fiji/ImageJ.
I’ve been looking into this, and it seems there is a class called handleextrafiletypes that could be modified to do this. The documentation says
It can be easily modified so that specialised file types can be opened.
So I guess I could modify the class and distribute a custom version (it would only be to a few people). Is this how it was intended to behave at one time?? It looks like
HandleExtraFileType is now integrated int IO_
Am I on the right track? Any reccomendations as to the best way to get ImageJ/Fiji to recognize a custom file type??
Thanks for any help people can provide
