    Hi,
    I have created some plugins using COFFEE. I have some flat files which keep track of all the object names that the user has been created using my plugin.
    Now I have written a small application using Visual Basic 6.0 which retrieves all the object names from those flat files and shows in a list box.
    Here what I would like to do is, when the user selects a name under list box (in VB application), that particular object should be highlighted (or selected) automatically in C4D.
    Is this kind of automation possible? Is there any API to call from outside of C4D?

    No, there's no outside API for C4D. You would have to code a plugin in C++ and manage the communication with the external application from within the plugin.
