    How do I get access to the data of each editor view?
    I'm particularly interested in the data the we can set with the "Configure..." command. Stuff like the display mode, the image that is on the background, etc.
    Can I access each view independently or do I only get data (and be able to set it) about the current view?
    Please, tell me how to get and set that information from COFFEE.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    p.s. Update the COFFEE documentation ;-)

    Well, I assume there is no way to get the data I need. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please ;-)

    I'm not doubting you, Samir. I'm just too upset if this is really not accessible. Come on!! Can someone from Maxon confirm that it is really not possible to access the editor view data?

    It isn´t. There isn´t even absolute access with C++, so how should there be in COFFEE? But if you want to waste time waiting for somebody else to confirm, do so. It´s not my time ;)

    Double darn!! Ok, thanks again, Samir.
    But if there is a class named BaseView that deals with editor views its simply stupid that we don't have access to that data.
    For instance, in the SDK we have:

    void GetParameter(Vector* offset, Vector* scale, Vector* scale_z)
    

    Retrieves the parameters for the current projection.

    and

    LONG GetProjection(void)
    

    Returns the projection used by the view.

    We ca have access to that. Why not to the configuration?
    I see that the SDK still has to evolve a lot. For C++ and COFFEE.

    In C++ you can set the image etc but not in COFFEE.
