Python AddIns for ArcMap made easy using ArcPy

Gain practical experience in ArcPy and Python

When starting to use the ArcPy site-package of ArcGIS for Desktop within Python scripting, it is important to understand the workflow for writing and configuring Python AddIns.

This course, which is suitable for English-speaking students from anywhere in the world, was recorded using ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Desktop but should be equally applicable to versions 10.1 and 10.2. It is not suitable for ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 and earlier versions because Python AddIns only became available at 10.1. ArcGIS for Desktop licensing is not included, but can be obtained for non-commercial purposes from Esri and its International Distributors under the ArcGIS for Home Use Program.

All necessary data is downloaded from Natural Earth, and solutions to the exercises are available as attachments to download.

In this 89 minute course of 12 videos you will learn how to:

  • Download the Python AddIn Wizard
  • Run the Python AddIn Wizard to create a Toolbar with one Button
  • Use IDLE and Notepad++ to edit Python and XML to configure seven types of Python AddIns
  • Troubleshoot Python AddIns
  • Create a Python AddIn that installs an Extension and a Tool
  • Create a Python AddIn that installs a Tool Palette, a Combo Box and several Menus
  • Write Tips and Messages for users of your Python AddIns; and
  • much more!
