Set attribute manager mode

    Is it possible to set the attribute manager mode, via a script, for example?
    Would it need to be active/in focus first?
    It would be nice to have the modes as buttons or tabs for quicker/easier access.
    Maybe this post would be better suited for the plugin requests, I wasn't sure.

    This seems to work sometimes, I made this super minimalist script

    In the cases it doesn't work, e.g. ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_TOOL;
    I have an editable poly cube and I set the attribute manager to a mode other than tool mode, when I execute the script with id as

    It shows project settings mode instead, noticed this happens with other modes too. Maybe I didn't set up the script properly and it defaults to project settings mode..

    Basicly c4d help you and set the mode according to the op you pass throught it.
    Here you have a quick exemple...

    import c4d
    def main() :
        obj = op
        c4d.gui.ActiveObjectManager_SetObject(c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_OBJECT, obj, c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMANAGER_SETOBJECTS_OPEN)
        tag = op.GetTags()[0]
        c4d.gui.ActiveObjectManager_SetObject(c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_TAG, tag, c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMANAGER_SETOBJECTS_OPEN)
        mat = doc.GetActiveMaterial()
        sha = mat.GetFirstShader()
        c4d.gui.ActiveObjectManager_SetObject(c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_SHADER, sha, c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMANAGER_SETOBJECTS_OPEN)
        tool = c4d.plugins.FindPlugin(doc.GetAction(), c4d.PLUGINTYPE_TOOL)
        c4d.gui.ActiveObjectManager_SetObject(c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_TOOL, tool, c4d.ACTIVEOBJECTMANAGER_SETOBJECTS_OPEN)
    if __name__=='__main__':
