At the moment I’m trying to realize a plugin for µManager which shows an overview grid of all xy positions (including images) for a multi-dimensional acquisition. Before doing an actual time lapse measurement I’d like to have a quick overview scan of the sample divided in all my pre-selected xy positions. By clicking on a specific position, the stage should automatically move towards there and display a live image.
As there’s still a lot of development potential regarding my programming skills, my question now is where do I have to write such an application. I already tried to get familiar with the different µManager features (script panel, pycro-manager, …) but I’m not sure which feature is suitable to which issue. Do you have any tips to begin with?
My plan so far is to implement my application in the script panel and then insert it as a java plugin (*.jar file) into µManager. Are there any similar examples working with the script panel?
I’d be very pleased to receive suggestions from you
