    In Target Expression tag not able to enable camera dependent option. In below code, I m creating a Target Expression tag for a camera.

    TextureTag* Tag = static_cast<TextureTag*>(TestCamera->MakeTag(Ttargetexpression));
    if (!Tag)
    return false;

    As already mentioned in another thread of yours, you really shouldn't cast a Target expression tag into a Texture tag, rather treat it as a BaseTag.

    The camera dependent option is part of the priority. PriorityData a custom data type (CUSTOMGUI_PRIORITY_DATA). So in order to modify this parameter the code looks for example like so:

    	GeData d;
    	targetTag->GetParameter(EXPRESSION_PRIORITY, d, DESCFLAGS_GET_0);
    	PriorityData* prio = static_cast<PriorityData*>(d.GetCustomDataType(CUSTOMGUI_PRIORITY_DATA));
    	prio->SetPriorityValue(PRIORITYVALUE_CAMERADEPENDENT, true);
    	targetTag->SetParameter(EXPRESSION_PRIORITY, d, DESCFLAGS_SET_0);
