    I know this topic has been up before, but being a complete beginner at coffee/c++, I couldn´t figure those old posts out.

    What I´m trying to do is to create a DisplayTag for an Object. I can add the Tag without a problem, but couldn´t find a way to set the Visibility Value itself. After poking around in both the sdk (which only mentions a few Containers) and the forums I found some posts, where the complete set of Containers for this Tag are mentioned. But, when I try to set the DISPLAYTAG_VISIBILITY or DISPLAYTAG_AFFECT_VISIBILITY, Cinema says that it expects a function or variable?

    the code I used:

    var visitag=new(DisplayTag);  
    var visibc=new(BaseContainer);   
    visibc->SetData(DISPLAYTAG_VISIBILITY,100.0); //Thats the line Cinema complains about  
    visitag->SetContainer(visibc);
    

    The method works for a PhongTag I also add to the objects, so I think (?) the code is correct.

    Could someone point me in the right direction? Any help would be appreciated.

    What part of the line does it complain about? If it's DISPLAYTAG_VISIBILITY that doesn't exist you can try the raw value from Tdisplay.h, 1006.

    ok, I feel like an idiot now :) I could swear I tried it with the raw value method before posting and it didn´t work... Thanks a lot!
