Application plugins are a mechanism for performing application-wide operations. They may run without a user interface until an application event fires, or they may modify the application menu bar or add application toolbars and toolbar buttons to the AutoCAD Map 3D task pane.
The application menu bar is only visible in the stand-alone AutoCAD Map 3D Client application or in the desktop AutoCAD Map 3D Client application when no workspace is loaded. If a workspace is loaded in the desktop AutoCAD Map 3D Client, the menu bar is not visible.
