    How would one get/set link fields in a GeDialog to a BaseContainer?

    COFFEE does not support Links.

    I thought as of r8.503 it did. At least through BaseContainers.

    COFFEE is STILL R6.303. There have been no updates to it since. A real shame.

    Check out a post titled "8.5 & COFFEE" by Philip Losch.
    He states:
    "8.5 allows you to access BaseLinks in BaseContainer structures."
    And he follows with some sample code.

    Okay. Let's say that these features were added to COFFEE in 8.5 (obviously sereptitiously). How do you use them? There is absolutely no documentation or SDK for anything other than R6.3 (you can check that for yourself at the SDK downloads section - I have already double-checked).

    Have you tried using Philip's method? I don't see any way to get/set BaseLinks in a GeDialog with COFFEE. Updates are useless if they are undocumented...

    The posting also offers some code examples.

    GetObject(ID)

    and SetObject(ID,obj-pointer)

    will work for basecontainers!!! However, kuroyume0161 (darn, can´t you just name yourself kuro? ;-) is right, you still cannot fully work with customguis with this yet.

    Best

    That's correct. Baselinks can be used in BaseContainers, according to the documentation posted in this forum. However, there's no support for link fields in C.O.F.F.E.E. dialogs.
