I'm tryiing to write a Plugin Tag in COFFEE, and I'm not sure how to implement the Copy() method.
The reference literature says I only need to overload this function if I want to use custom variables in the derived tag. What exactly does "custom variables" mean here?
If I have:
class MyPluginTag : PluginTag
Then does "myVar" count as a custom variable?
Perhaps it would help if there is an example of this type of plugin somewhere.
And one more question: Is it possible for a plugin tag to display its dialog items in the attribute manager, or is that only possible for the built-in tags ( Phong, etc.)?
Hope someone can help!

Custom variables are non-container variables (items that are not stored in the tag's basecontainer. myVar e.g. is a custom variable.
COFFEE tags cannot be displayed in the attribute manager right now.

Thanks for that.
The penny is starting to drop, I think.
