    Very tactful.

    Demanding? David, seriously. Did you look at the dates? I posted here after more than a year on FC trying to get this fixed. The problems and complete ommisions presented in the ObjectData classes we horrible. No consistency. The fact you are working on it when we hear Maxon is desperately trying to build in JENNA like functionality in C4D is more than timing. Reminds of the functions I did not need for the volume tracer back in 2000 eh Philip? But Cebas needed them for PyroCluster so lets put them in! LOL... Gotta give you points for consistency.

    I make alot more money being wrong. ;-)

    Funny thing is, I get along great with all of the other developers I have worked with. Apple is great, Alias is great, Adobe doing well. Huh, must be me.

    BTW: Tell Perry hi and we appreciated him outright fabricating his response to SLA support back in the day ( 3DWorld letter of the month where Maxon decided to lie and avoid supporting SLA for v6 which was contractually their responsibility ). That was a hoot! Fabrication of facts. Seems like a trademark for you guys. Time reveals all.

    Oh well, I said my peace. Time to stop wasting effort caring about something that has long since sailed.

    Sorry, there isn't really enough information there to know what might be a problem. What do you mean by refreshing? Is this about the dirty update?

    I added a GePrint in Addtoexecution, execute and getcontour.

    The parent "Plugin01" correctly execute getcontour but the second "Plugin02" only execute "addtoexecution" and "execute" ... no getcontour is processed in pipeline.
    So the GetContour in Plugin02 inside the Plugin01 is not executed anymore.
    I hope that this can help to understand my problem

    Plugin01
    -- spline
    -- Plugin02

    thanks

    Its unlikey anyone is going to be able to help with the little information you have given, also this would be better in its own thread rather than adding to an unrelated one. Try posting a new thread with more details.
    Just a tip, try to give as much detail as possible, code snips if you can (especially ones that can be inserted into the sdk examples to run easily). Also make the topic show what you are asking about. If you do not do these then it is much harder for others to help. As a rule of thumb, if its not easy (immediate) for someone else to see what the problem is or what to help with then you'll get less people trying.

    The problmen is that SplineTools, my plugin that dynamically join splines, don't work good with 9.5 because is called only one time when with R8.5->R9.1 is working good.
    To force the refreshing on splinetools i have added (like i told to my previous post) the AddToExecution and Execute function to force refresh (like you suggested).
    Now this is not working so i expect that a thing is changed with the 9.5.. or not?

    thanks

    Try running the plugin in 9.1 and 9.5 in parallel in debug mode to see where the code execution differs. I can't think of any changes that I know of to object plugins in the api, so any help pointing out where the difference lies would be helpful.

    The problem could be in RegisterObjectPlugin();

    Something was changed hire in the C4D 9.5

    Thanks for the info.. but seem not refresh too.
    I ported the code in the 9.5 environment and i compiled it with OBJECT_ISSPLINE. I forced the SplineTools::Execute the

    op->SetDirty(DIRTY_MATRIX);
    op->SetDirty(DIRTY_DATA);

    but when i trace the code... is not executing the GetVirtualObjects.

    So i think that i can't force anymore like in R8 and 9.1 the dirtybit to execute GetVirtualObjects.

    any help?

    Cheers

    Try to compile only with OBJECT_GENERATOR...
    But probably you have tried it already.

    This is spline generator but it uses GetVirtualObject ?

    Just replaced GetVirtualObjects with GetContour and is executed first time.. so i'm at my first question.. how i can refresh? :)
