Hi again,
I'm working on a ObjectData plugin where I have a link to a polygon object.

I get access to the object when I receive the message: MSG_DESCRIPTION_CHECKDRAGANDDROP on the link field.

I can get floats with
<CODE>
BaseContainer *data = op->GetDataInstance();
Real rad = data->GetReal(AIMAPOBJECT_RAD);
</CODE>

so the question is how do I go about getting a reference to the object in the Link field which id is INSTANCEOBJECT_LINK?

I looked in the ObjectData and all the super classes, but can't find the method that would do the job 😞

thanks

If the link is a static description resource on your plugin object, then all you need do it this:

BaseContainer* data = op->GetDataInstance();  
BaseObject* linkOp = data->GetObjectLink(INSTANCEOBJECT_LINK, op->GetDocument());
