    In my object generator plugin, I have a shaderlink as a description parameter.
    I would like to click on a button that inserts a shader into that shaderlink.

    In the button Message, I tried using the following:

    AutoAlloc<BaseShader> shader1(Xcolor);
    BaseContainer* bc = op->GetDataInstance();
    bc->SetLink(MY_SHADER_LINK_ID, shader1);						

    Obviously it does not work. 
    I know how to set a shader in a material, but I would like to be able to set in an independent shaderlink.

    The shader have to belong to a BaseList2d so you have to insert it using YourObject.InsertShader
    For more information take a look at

    Thank you for your answer gr4ph0s. I was missing MyObject->InsertShader. 
    It works now.
