Hi, this code crashes cinema4d and I don't see why

    
    
    
    
     Bool OK=FALSE;  
     Filename File;          
    
    
    
    
     BaseFile *ExportFilename=NULL;     
    
    
    
    
       
     // Show FileSelect dialog  
     if(!File.FileSelect(FSTYPE_ANYTHING,GE_SAVE,NULL))  
     {  
      MessageDialog("Export Cancelled");  
      return FALSE;  
     }
    
    
    
    
     // Set mouse cursor to a busy sign  
     GeShowMouse(MOUSE_BUSY);
    
    
    
    
    GePrint("Before Open");  
     // Open file for exporting  
     OK = ExportFilename->Open(File, GE_WRITE);  
    GePrint("After Open");
    
    
    

it crashes on the ExportFilename->Open line
What am I doing wrong?

Have you actually allocated the BaseFile? the code above doesn't.

how do i have to alloc ?

BaseFile *bfile=NULL;
  bfile->Alloc();
  bfile->Open(name,GE_WRITE);
crashes again ) :

bfile->Open(...);
// do file stuff
bfile->Close();
BaseFile::Free(bfile);

thanks, it doesnt crash now,
but my plugin still doesnt create a file ) :
what´s wrong, this time

LONG SMDFilter::Save(PluginSceneSaver *node, const Filename &name, BaseDocument *doc, LONG flags)
{
 doc = GetActiveDocument();
    BaseObject *obj = doc->GetActiveObject();

Have you checked that 'name' has content and points to a valid path?

I can't see anything obviously wrong, otherwise.

i tried it this way, too
nothing happens, no file created
i can´t see the mistake
could you give me a very little example for a plugin that saves a string to a file, plz ??
thanks

It works fine for me here:

AutoAlloc<BaseFile> bf;  
     if (!bf->Open(presetdirectory,GE_WRITE,FILE_NODIALOG,GE_MOTOROLA)) return FALSE;

ok, here is my code, i hope the variable "name" in the save-method is used correctly:

#include <stdio.h>

#include <c4d.h>
class SMDFilter : SceneSaverData

   //read relevant values
   i=0;
   for(int a=0; a<cnt; a++)

   }
   GePrint(itoa(i,ibuffer,10));
   //go to the next tag
   tag = tag->GetNext();
        }  
    } 
    else MessageDialog(" - no object");
   
    return TRUE;
}
Bool RegisterSMD(void)
{
  if(!RegisterSceneSaverPlugin(1111111,"SMDex",0, SMDFilter::Alloc, EXECUTION_RESULT_OK, 0, NULL)) return FALSE;
  return TRUE;
}

if so, what´s wrong here ?
thanks a lot for your help!!!

The rest of the code shouldn´t have an effect on the save operation. The save code is correct, not sure why it doesn´t work for you. I assume it has something to do with the SceneSaver hook. (however I cannot really judge it, as I haven´t used this hook yet).

Mikael probably knows what´s wrong here, so I suggest to wait for his support.
