I have some custom tags. Their UIs are defined using 'CONTAINER' res files. In these files I use PARENTID to logically group related elements, and MIN, STEP and MAX to set the allowable value ranges.
In the code I override 'GetDEnabling' to provide the control logic regarding which parameters are greyed out.
This all works fine.
I also have a custom tool, which has many of the same parameters. Its UI is defined in a 'DIALOG' res file, but I'm having problems replicating the visual grouping (PARENTID doesn't seem to be allowed in DIALOG res files), and I don't know how to grey out elements since GetDEnabling is not available in ToolData (it's defined in NodeData, so it's available to objects, but not tools).
Obviously this is possible, since e.g. 'Bevel' does it.
So, what key piece of the jigsaw am I missing?
