Creating a Python Script box
blastframe last edited by blastframe
I'd like to create a Script box with Python syntax &
c4dsymbol highlighting for my plugin similar to the one found in the Python & Visual Selector tags. Is this possible? I didn't see it listed in c4d.gui. If it isn't possible, how could I offer the user a way to add their own code? Thank you!

I am not quite sure what you mean by symbol highlighting. Do you mean syntax highlighting? That is achieved by a
MULTILINEEDITwith the SYNTAXCOLOR flag. But this will only give you an edit box with nice highlighting, any evaluation would have to be done by yourself. How this could be done, I have shown here in a slightly different context.

except what @zipit said, there's nothing outof the box that you can use in our API to do it.
You have to come with your own solution.
Remotion have create such a tool few years ago:
I would say that it's not really hard to do, it's just long and during the path you are walking to build such a tool, you could find some walls that you didn't expect ^^'
I would start using the function GetDParameter, check the content and change the color of some words accordingly.
