    Hi guys,

    I really got stuck, maybe you can help me out.
    In ResEdit, I created a Custom Element(TEXTURNAME [1000484]).
    Now, how can I access its Container or at least the Properties like the image, the user has chosen? I read the SDK Docu up and down and vice versa, even the customgui_texturename.h did not give any usable info, as well as this forum.

    What I want to do is, let the User choose a Bitmap and pass this relative path to a variable.

    Best Regards, Robert...

    Appendix:

    Based on the CPP SDK Docs, I found some useful Info, but it's still not enough. I really wish, there would be more examples for particular Elements, especially for Custom-Elements.
    Maybe, it's just a simple mistake, but the println never puits something out...

    greetings, Robert

    You can't access custom GUI elements in COFFEE. For some there exist workarounds, but in general not.

    cheers,

    Oh, thanks.

    But could you eventually point me to a workaround then?
    Would be very kind ;)

    In dialogs you can't access custom GUI elements in general. An exception is the link field which receives a drag message if you drag something into into it. See following thread:

    Question to LinkBox

    cheers,

    Also you can access some parts of custom description elements. But this depends on the internal datatype structure of the elements.
