    Hi,
    how can I set the fields of the constraint-tag (especially the parent ones)?
    I know tcaconstraint.h, but the problem seem to be, that you can add more than one target. Anyone got the right IDs?

    Ok, took sometime, here is how it seems to work:
    For PSR:
    ID
    10000 = target Count
    10001 = 1st target (Link)
    10002 = 1st target Weight
    10003 = antother link, dont know which object yet
    10004 = unknown vector
    10005 = 1st target checkmark Position
    10006 = 1st target checkmark Scale
    10007 = 1st target checkmark Rot

    2nd target begins at 10011 etc
    for Aim etc it's pretty much similar, just begins with 20001

    Now it would be interesting to know how to add more targets by code (simulating pressing the button? :-) ).

    If you look in the file you mentioned (tcaconstraint.h) you will find all the IDs you need. e.g. as you found the PSR dynamic IDs start at 10000:

    > ID_CA_CONSTRAINT_TAG_PSR_TARGET_COUNT = 10000

    To add them you can send a command message (e.g. ID_CA_CONSTRAINT_TAG_PSR_ADD) to the tag (MSG_DESCRIPTION_COMMAND) or you can add the items to the BaseContainer yourself. Just increase the target count long in the container and fill in the data, the tag will then use them.

    e.g. to access each target you can use something like this:

    > base=ID_CA_CONSTRAINT_TAG_PSR_TARGET_COUNT+i\*CONSTRAINT_ELEMENT+1;

    where:

    > #define CONSTRAINT_ELEMENT     10
