1. Question: how i can send own custom messages? Is a unique ID for such own message needed?
2. Question: how i can change the icon of a tag 'on the fly'? (like icon of the instance object).

1. You can use SpecialEventAdd() with a unique plugin ID to send CoreMessage(), or simply Message() with a unique ID to send normal Atom messages.
2. I don't think it's possible, since the icon is shared between all instances of the tag. (Btw, does the instance object icon ever change? It didn't seem to when I tested it.)

Instance object change own icon, if no master object assigned.

Ok, that's right. Unfortunately, according to the programmers, this isn't possible for plugin objects (or tags).

Well change icon was not possible with C4D 8.5 SDK but is it possible with SDK 9.6 or 10.0 ???

One question more, how it used in TagData::Message()?
For me it is not working...

Hmm, I don´t know actually. I haven´t tried it yet. :) Spontaneously it should simply work like so:
GetCustomIconData* gcid = static_cast<GetCustomIconData*>(data);
if(gcid && bmp)
bmp->CopyTo(gcid->dat->bmp); //Or fill it otherwise
gcid->filled = TRUE;
If it doesn´t I cannot say why. :-/

I just read that you can also directly assign your own bitmap when it´s not yet set up.
