Hi guys,
sometimes I use the Script log to see what a command syntax looks like, and usually fail to create a Python script out of it.
For example, using:

turns the "Create New object at View Center" on and off.
How would I create a script that toggles between states, with the icon being Active (blue) when it's on and grey when it's off?

just pasting the code in a script gives me an error:
Traceback (most recent call last) :
  File "'scriptmanager'", line 11, in <module>
  File "'scriptmanager'", line 7, in main
NameError: global name 'prefs' is not defined

import c4d

    interface[c4d.PREF_INTERFACE_CENTEROBJECT] = not bool(interface[c4d.PREF_INTERFACE_CENTEROBJECT]) #toogle
if __name__=='__main__':

For the state take a look at my video here (in french)
Or look at this post where you have everything you need for doing it

Btw I wanted to say a big thank you!
You are one of the guy who inspire me about doing pythonic stuff. So thanks for your love of c4d and all your share !

Thank you so much for your help.
I was trying to help out a user on CG Society.
I'm going to post your script alongside another solution.

Also, I'm glad I could inspire you to push the limits of C4D... keep up the great work!
