if i understand you have to create a string in a plugin and then you have to read it for another ?
if yes.... try to store string in first plugin basecontainer and read it for the other... but this is not the only way.
all the best

no, sorry, i guess i was a bit unclear. what i am searching for is a way to reuse string definitions for my descriptions. for example i have a group called GENERALSETTINGS and i have defined it like GENERALSETTINGS "general settings";
now i'd like to use this string in more than one res-file.

Well, as long as we're talking about a single plugin package, c4d_string.str and c4d_symbols.h are the places to define and declare it. Don't know about dialogs though, but for descriptions it should be fine.
Hope it helps

thanks for your input
is c4d_string.str loaded automatically? since i tried placing the definition there and it didnt work. i tried it for a string which is used as a NAME for a GROUP..

Strings always need an ID and the actual string. In your case the ID goes into the c4d_symbols.h file and the string into the c4d_strings.str file. You can then load the string with GeLoadString(MY_STRING_ID).
