    Hi,
    it's me again with a new problem! If I see that right in the samples it is possible to add object properties which can be changed by users, just by writing them into the *res - and *.str-files. So I did that, but when I start the plugin Cinema 4D shows me an error in the *res-file.
    Here is my *.res-file:

    > \> CONTAINER OBaum \> { \>      NAME OBaum; \>      INCLUDE Obase; \>       \>      GROUP ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES \>      { \>           BOOL ECHTZEIT { } \>      } \> } \> \>

    The error is located in line 8, which is the BOOL...-line I think.
    I also added ECHTZEIT to the *.str-files and the *.h-file.
    Any idea about that?
    Thanks
    Basti

    Seems ok to me. Be aware that you need five ressource/header/string files for your plugin. They should look something like this

    c4d_symbols.h

    Maybe there is something wrong in your plugin registration code?

    Ah, ok, I didn't know about c4d_strings.str and c4d_symbols.h. Thanks a lot!

    Oh, of course. Sorry.

    My *.res-file still is unchanged.

    please make sure that header, ressource and string file have the same name, for example "obaum.h", "obaum.res" and "obaum.str".

    Changed that, still the same error.

    Maybe it helps to see my Init-Method:

    What does your register function look like? Something like this

    Does the "oBaum" in the RegisterObjectPlugin() function exactly match with the file names? Usally it's best to avoid upper case completly.

    Yes, that's the exact filename (without file type extension of course).
