Buttons ids

  • Hi all,

    For the python function CallButton I have to pass the id of the button I want to call. Nice, where do I find the ids for the buttons? I can't see any information/indication on the python documentation


  • Hello,

    there's no real list where you can find easily those IDs.

    @m_adam came with this idea :
    open the Script log (menu script > script log) and click the button you want to call.
    in the console you will see something like

     c4d.CallButton(tool(), c4d.MDATA_NEWTRANSFORM)

    so you know that the ID is c4d.MDATA_NEWTRANSFORM

    Another place to look for, is the folder ressource/modules where you can find the files .res that build the ui. (using your OS search function will help a lot) Openning those file you will find the information


    and you can maybe open the file with the same name with the extention .h where you will find the id

    MDATA_NEWTRANSFORM							= 701,   // Button

    Other than that, there are the enums on the documentation like this page but it's not really "user friendly"

    Let me know.
