    Hi,

    in a tag plugin's descriptions, I want to use tristate checkboxes.
    Is that possible? And if so, how does it work?

    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings,
    Jack

    What do you mean with tristate checkbox? What is the third state, greyed out?

    cheers,

    No greyed out, but more like "UNDECIDED" ;-)

    I have a tag to override default attributes that come from another object. For example (just a very cheap example), the object sais: "Create Sphere". Or it sais "Create NO Sphere".

    The user should be able to check the checkbox (meaning "Always create sphere, no matter what the object sais"), or to uncheck it (meaning "Never create sphere, no matter what the object sais"), or give it the third state (meaning "do whatever the object sais").

    Of course, the spheres are just an example.

    I saw in the SDK that Tristate checkboxes seem to be available in GeDialogs. But not in the descriptions that show up in the Attribute Manager. Is there a specific reason for that, or can I somehow use the GeDialog's Tristate checkboxes in normal descriptions, too?

    Greetings,
    Jack
