    Hello,
    i have in my Dialog a TreeView and a DescriptionCustomGUI. In some cases i need to drag an element (ObjectData) from the TreeView to a LinkBoxGui in the DescriptionCustomGUI.

    While dragging over the linkbox, the dragged element is shown in the linkbox (like accepting the object). But after releasing the mouse, the link box leaves empty.

    I start the dragging in the TreeView in GenerateDragArray, where i add my object directly to the AtomArray.

    The DescriptionCustomGUI was created with DESCRIPTION_OBJECTSNOTINDOC and the dragged object is not in a document. May this cause the problem?

    How is the SetLink() for a LinkBoxGui done manually? Can i assign my object (ObjectData* myobjectdata) directly to the LinkBoxGui, like:
    mybasecontainer->SetLink(LINKBOX_ID, myobjectdata);

    Torsten

    Hmm, yes I guess this would be a problem. BaseLinks are made for objects that belong to a document. The criterion for having your link show up in the link GUI is that GetLink(GetActiveDocument()) doesn't return NULL.

    OK, will it work if a create a BaseDocument with Alloc, insert my objects to this document, but will not insert the document to C4D?

    If not, then i have to do my job with a kind of combobox. But i can't find any example, how to add items to an existing, empty CYCLE.

    mycontainer.res:
    ...
    LONG ACTIVEOBJECTINDEX
    {
        CYCLE
        {
        }
    }
    ...

    How to add and remove items dynamically? And how to read the selected item?
    Thank you for your help.

    It's not LINKBOX, it's LINK - check the SDK documentation under "Description resource" for details. :)
