what I´d like to have in my plugin is a field where I can drag an object of my choice to create a reference to this object for my plugin to use (eg. like the Reference Object field in an Instance Object), so that, if I change the name of the object, the reference is still there. Is there an easy way to create this (meaning I simply overlooked it), or is it not possible from within coffee?
If it´s not possible, what would be the best way to get/store this information?
Also, was there a change to the way bitmaps are handled? I have a title image inside my plugin (using a UserArea), and since upgrading to 8.2 the complete image is grey - worked perfectly well under 8.1?
Thanks in advance,

Drag and drop fields are possible (see the GUI demo C.O.F.F.E.E. example). Base links aren't there in C.O.F.F.E.E. yet, but you could store the name.
I don't know if anything related to bitmaps in C.O.F.F.E.E. changed in 8.2. How do you load the image? Is the image the right size, just grey?

ah, now i see... ok, storing the name is ok, since the objects will be uniqely named. I´ll try that.
fyi, the source code available for download in the GuiDemo section is different from the one displayed on the site - I take the one in the download is the newer one.
as for the images: I took the code for that one from this forum (can´t remember where), and yes, the image is the correct size, and grey (if I use BMP_NORMAL, or black, if I use BMP_NORMALSCALED). Under 8.1 it works, under 8.2, no luck...
and add a User Area during CreateLayout() :
thanks for your help,
