Is there anyway to get something similar to InExcludeData but for storing tag instead of object?

In which context do you want to have an InExcludeData with tags? Do you want to manipulate an arbitrary InExcludeData object or one for a description parameter?

Note, an InExcludeData can store any base list element, not only objects. The documentation isn't clear.
And in a description resource file, filter the accepted base list elements with the ACCEPT/REFUSE flags.
For instance, to accept only tags use:

It would be nice to have it directly into userData.
since I build my ui from user data for some reasons instead of passing via desciption.

Anyway thanks you

It's also possible to setup the ACCEPT settings for an InExclude user data.
This can be done via code with BaseList2D.GetUserDataContainer()/SetUserDataContainer() that retrieve/set a user data description.
The following script changes all the InExclude user data of the active object to only accept tags:

import c4d
def main() :
    if op is None:
    # Loop through active object user data
    udList = op.GetUserDataContainer()
    for udID, udBC in udList:
        # Filter INEXCLUDE user data
        if udID[1].dtype == c4d.CUSTOMDATATYPE_INEXCLUDE_LIST:
            # Setup DESC_ACCEPT settings container
            accept = c4d.BaseContainer()
            accept.InsData(c4d.Tbase, "")
            # Set DESC_ACCEPT settings container
            udBC[c4d.DESC_ACCEPT] = accept
            # Set changed user data settings
            op.SetUserDataContainer(udID, udBC)
if __name__=='__main__':
