    User Information:
    Cinema 4D Version:   8.100 
    Platform:      
    Language(s) :     C++  ;

    ---------
    How can I get information from a C4D- Dialog?
    For example I want to read a scale-Factor from the "Real-Control" SCALE_FACTOR.

        
        
        
        
        // in MeshExporter.res:
        
        
        
        
        CONTAINER MshExporter  
        {  
         NAME MshExporter;  
         INCLUDE Fbase;
        
        
        
        
         GROUP MshExporter  
         {  
          REAL SCALE_FACTOR { UNIT REAL; }  
         }
        
        
        
        
        }
        
        
        
    

    A short code-sample would be nice.

    Hello,
    please have a look at the code examples in the SDK first. Where do you want to get the Real value from? What plugintype?
    Some lines of code would help.
    Best

    It is an Exporter.  In C4D you see the Dialog under: Edit->Preferences->Import/Export. The Dialog contains only a "REAL- Control" for Scaling. I just want to read the value in that Control from the Exporter-Plugin.
    My Res-File reads (as stated before) :

        
        
        
        
        // in MeshExporter.res:
        
        
        
        
        CONTAINER MshExporter  
        {  
         NAME MshExporter;  
         INCLUDE Fbase;
        
        
        
        
          
         
        
        
        
        
         GROUP MshExporter  
         {  
          REAL SCALE_FACTOR { UNIT REAL; }  
         }
        
        
        
        
        }
        
        
        
    

    I don´t use GEDialog or so. I just edited the necessary *.res, *.str *.h- files and now I try to get info from the Control. How?

    It should work like any other examples in the SDK too:
    BaseContainer *data = node->GetDataInstance();
    then you can access the real value through the container with
    Real sf = data->GetReal(SCALE_FACTOR);

    That´s it, thanks.
    No Info anyhwere, for what node in the Save()- Function  is good or what Info it holds, where it comes from or what it means.
    But it´s a node! Found it, thanks.
    A 2-page description of fundamental SDK-objects and data-organisation would make working with the API a pleasure.  But this way, it´s frustrating most times. Anyway, got it, thanks.

    well, a node actually defines all objects in Cinema 4D (tags, keys, objects and also filters) and is represented by the NodeData class that inherits from the BaseData (that is topmost afaic remember).
    It´s nothing more than a pointer to the node instance filled directly by Cinema 4D and passed to the corresponding functions.
    Well, actually that´s how I understood it :o)
