UNSOLVED NodeData Undo

@m_magalhaes said in NodeData Undo:

uu.descid = &m_LinkID;

Seeing this makes me assume I will need to provide a member variable for each description ID I intend to have an undo for?
And I would need to send a message for each and every description ID?

I'd much rather prefer going with the single call to perform an AddUndo instead.

Hi,

well, the structure DescriptionInitUndo have a descid variable you can provide.

As you react to MSG_DESCRIPTION_INITUNDO this descid can be whatever you need to trigger the action you want.

Right, but that uu.descid expects a pointer.
Which means you cannot simply pass the description ID of a gadget, but need to allocate some memory and keep that active until the message has been processed.

With RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID defined in the desription header
I can simply set the parameter via:

node->SetParameter(RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID ...

I cannot do:

uu.descid = RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID

Hi,

this should work.

DescriptionInitUndo uu;
uu.doc = doc;
// define the descid

uu.descid = &DescID(RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID);
// or 
DescID tid = MSG_DESCRIPTION_INITUNDO;
uu.descid = &tid;

DescriptionInitUndo uu;

uu.descid = &DescID(RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID);

Unfortunately!
That's exactly what I had tried from the start but while the message gets delivered the descid didn't survive.

Looking at the content of uData.descid when manually changing the gadget, I see it contains
10050 = the ID of the description float field ((RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID)
1057224 = the plugin ID of the NodeData description.

Should the plugin ID of the NodeData description be passed somewhere during:

DescriptionInitUndo uu;
uu.doc = doc;
uu.descid = &(RECTANGLE_ROTATION_ID);
obj->Message(MSG_DESCRIPTION_INITUNDO, &uu);

?

Hi,

Sorry i forgot this thread. what version of cinema4D are you using (just in case)

Cheers,

@m_magalhaes
At the moment I am using R20.

Hi,

sorry for that huge delay.

I tried again and it's working even on R20. The descid isn't something to consider. I mean i have the same kind of result, count = 0 and 0x00000 address but it's working.

The undo is added correctly, if the undo arrow is grey out, it become active. That mean an undo step has been added.
Just in case, what's important is to call the message before the change happen because CHANGE_SMALL must be called before.
