Creating Your First Extension

This tutorial walks through the process of creating a simple extension, Hello World, that adds new capability to an Adobe Creative Suite application. The Hello World extension defines a panel with buttons that you can click to create a document in the host application. This example demonstrates how to work with an Adobe Creative Suite extension project in Extension Builder, how to define a basic user interface for an extension, and how to access the host application's scripting Document Object Model (DOM).

Before you begin work on Hello World or any Adobe Creative Suite extension, you must set up your development environment as described in Developing with Adobe Creative Suite Extension Builder, and must have a working knowledge of that environment, and of the scripting interface offered by your host application.

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions in order to familiarize you with the processes and concepts.
