How can I select some tool?
And how to get its container?
For example I want to make a command that select the Knife tool and set its Mode to "plane" and Plane to "X-Y".

Sounds like you'll need to use FindPlugin(ID, C4DPL_TOOL) and then get the BaseContainer using GetDataInstance(), for instance. 🙂

The hard part is knowing the ID and getting the specific Attribute Manager/Active Tool settings. These should be stored somewhere in the Resource folder (_api or res or modules possibly).

When the tool is selected, it´s descriptions get display in the AM automatically! Reshowing it, is simply reactivating the tool.

Working on a tool for your edge slide pluggy? 😉

Keep it up.

The user selects it. 🙂 Or do you need this for something different? Maybe it would be better to explain why you want to select a tool yourself?

Anyway, select a tool by this: doc->SetAction(PLUGINID_OF_TOOLPLUGIN);

If this doesn´t work, try a GeSyncMessage(EVMSG_TOOLCHANGED); //or another message type

So, what plug are you workin on?

Hope that helps
