RE: [fwd] Add command to right click parameter menu

Dear user,

thank you for reaching out to us.

Is it possible, via C++, to add a command to the right click menu that pops up for a parameter in C4D?

Unfortunately, that is not possible. The context menu of a DescriptionCustomGui is sealed off from user access. The specific context menu is not meant to be modified.

I would like to call a command and somehow get the parameter that was right clicked on as well. I don't think this is possible at all, but can't hurt to ask just in case.

You are right, this is also not possible, at least in the context you are most likely talking about. You can get hold of the selected element(s) in a DescriptionCustomGui via GetDescIDSelection() (Link), but this requires one to get hold of that DescriptionCustomGui obviously. Since you are very likely talking about the Attribute Manger, this is effectively not possible, since you cannot get hold of it from the SDK side (in the way you want to). For a custom GeDialog with a DescriptionCustomGui this would be possible. While we can technically get hold of an Attribute Manager when implementing nodes, I do not see a way to get hold of its DescriptionCustomGui nonetheless.

Cheers,
Ferdinand

[fwd] Add command to right click parameter menu

Dear community,

due to the smaller hiccups occurring alongside the migration from our old Plugin Café design to this new one, a support request did reach us by mail. We are sharing this here, so that the answer is publicly available.

You can find the original question below.

Cheers,
Ferdinand


Hey guys,

Is it possible, via C++, to add a command to the right click menu that pops up for a parameter in C4D? Such as this scale vector as shown below.

I would like to call a command and somehow get the parameter that was right clicked on as well. I don't think this is possible at all, but can't hurt to ask just in case. I would need this for R20 to S24.

FYI: I tried posting this to the plugincafe, but there are no categories to choose from so it doesn't allow me to post since I didn't set a category.

Cheers,

You can switch it by going to your profile settings and at the bottom of the page switch to Dark in Select skin for theme. Be sure to refresh your browser cache and you should be good to go!

RE: No scrolling, no paging...?

@Cairyn: thanks to nodeBB folks, the issue of infinite scrolling / infinite flickering should be resolved now.

Please let me know if it persists on your side, R

RE: No scrolling, no paging...?

Hi @Cairyn, I've tested on different OS (macOS, Windows, Linux) and different browsers (Safari, Edge, Firefox) and, although I've spotted some other issues, I'm capable to dynamically scroll down like in an infinite scrolling mode.

The infinite scrolling mechanism although has a little lag that is "physiological" and can't be avoided: once reached the end of the scroll give the browser a little to refresh and load further pages.

What instead I'm still trying to fix is a sort of "infinite flickering" issue as visible below

I'll try digging down and for the time being as suggested by @ferdinand the best way to avoid this UX flaw is to active pagination under the User Settings

RE: No scrolling, no paging...?

Hello @Cairyn,

could you clarify what you do mean with "topic overview lists"? I assume you mean for example the recent topics overview? The content for these has always been loaded in dynamically while scrolling down.

It works for me, both on Edge and Chrome on Windows 10. I do not have Firefox. Have you checked your JavaScript settings for the site?

If you prefer pagination, you can turn it on in your profile under settings/pagination.

Cheers,
Ferdinand

RE: Can I now script creation of Node Materials (R21.1, S22, R23, S24) ?

Yes, you can, see Python What is new :D

But documentation and examples are lacking for Python, we are working on it to provide them as soon as possible.

Cheers,
Maxime.
