Where can I find the list for all the Events supported by vm?
I need to make a plugin for virtuemart but the documentation at https://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki/Developing_a_module_or_plugin_for_VirtueMart_2 is not helpful at all.
I managed to make a vmcustom plugin and the constructor gets called correctly in the main component but I would like to know how can I trigger events that show the vm cart.

thank you in advance.

I do not understand, if the last answer is a response or a not yet filtered spam.

But I'am on the same side of trying to find proper developer documentation and the least I can say is that, the 'new' site as very insufficient documentation content compared to what is qualified here as 'old' documentation.

So from other developers could we list best documentation links ??

1) I found that reading the code from the aio is the best documentation by deciphering code commonalities and onXXX callbacks function from vm engine
2) the http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/virtuemart/wiki is still the best source of technical information

found the best explanation for custom fields here : http://www.spiralscripts.co.uk/Table/How-To/Joomla-Tips/

Does anyone have some advice to feed this thread ?

Thanks in advance.

I am new to this payment gateway specially in VirtueMart. and I am planning to integrate it to our website and make own payment plugin, I am searching for VirtueMart 2.0 documentation or tutorials on how can i do it. I was reading this link: http://dev.virtuemart.net/projects/1/wiki/plugin_system
but it seems that samples are for Joomla 1.5-1.7.


VirtueMart: 2.0.24
Joomla: 2.5.16
PHP: 5.3

Sorry for a newbie question  ;D

Hello

The best is to look at the different examples provided in the VirtueMart core.

Hello!
Are there any changes in XML file - regarding plugin installation - recently?
I cannot install my plugin after upgrading to Joomla 3.6 and VM 3.0.16.
Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<extension version="3.0"  type="plugin" group="vmpayment" method="upgrade">
I got:

Warning
JInstaller: :Install: Can't find Joomla XML setup file.
Error
Unable to find install package

oki doki, I found my little mistake - thanks, GJC. 
You had inspired me with that  "dummy-payment" plugin, which could allow to change order status form a URL.  from here:
