Hi All 🙂

Would be very useful for us to have a chance to change any description element color and the color background of group.

If you really  want to do it, I suppose you could implement a Custom GUI plugin which shows another
DescriptionCustomGui and use SubDialog::GetDefaultColor() to change colors. Note 100% sure if that'll
work though, and again you wouldn't be able to control the color of a specific parameter. Additionally,
you would need to solve the riddle on how to hide the Parameter Name with your Custom GUI in your
object's main description (like a Button does not show the label on the left, but instead on top).

That's the only thing remotely close to a solution that I can think of, Haha :nerd:

I was thinking at something like this: DESC_BACK_COLOR and DESC_TEXT_COLOR in the parameter container.

as Niklas mentioned before, this is not possible (at least without hacks or awkward workarounds).
Also it would be pretty uncommon in Cinema 4D's UI, something we usually discourage to do, in order to keep a consistent user experience.
