Hi there,

me again 😂

is there any way to Call the buttons, dialogs etc via their name they have in the c4d_symbols.h ?

Like IDD_INFOMANAGER,IDP_TEXTURE_SAVE,IDP_PASTEINTO_SELECTION, etc ?

Because not every button, function, dialog etc has an ID assigned.

But I guess it should be possible to simulate a buttonclick on any button the program offers.

Thank you in advance once more

Check out c4d.CallButton() in the main module. I think you have to add c4d. before the button name id. You also supply the object the button is on, like :

c4d.CallButton(obj, c4d.IDP_TEXTURE_SAVE)

Alright, thanks for that.

I'll give it a try, although I do not think it will work because according to the documentation an integer is required.

But heja the proof of the pudding is in the heating.

edit:

import c4d
from c4d import *

obj = doc.GetFirstObject()

def button_simulate(obj) :
 c4d.CallButton(obj,c4d.SELECTIONOBJECT_RESTORE)
 c4d.EventAdd()

button_simulate(obj)

I found the DescID via searching in the c4d_stings.str

Gr8 that's already one step forward 👏

so far, so good and now there is the big but:
is there any chance to load dialogues instead of objects to perform a CallButton ?

Because I'm still interested in the texturemanagertab in the infomanager.
Especially accessing the list of textures

These IDs are integers, like when you write:

obj = c4d.BaseObject(c4d.Ocube)

the c4d.Ocube part is the same as integer 5159, so the code means the same as this :

obj = c4d.BaseObject(5159)

The IDs are just to make your code more readable and in case you don't know the number.

You can find out the number like this :

id = obj.GetType()
print id

You are so right, blame it on me

maybe you have an idea to access the buttons in the dialogues as well ?

Thanks for sharing your knowledge

No blame intended, I've just been working this stuff out myself these past few weeks, mainly by putting all the wrong types into everything !
I'm not sure how to access the manager dialogues but if I think of anything I work it out, I'll be sure to post.

So Do I 😣

As an update, after 2 days trial n error combined with intensive googling there seems to be no way to access those dialogues, or at least if someone found it out he does not reveal the way.

CallCommand just accepts BaseList2D objects, dialogs are not accessible. Which button in which dialog do you want to press?

Well, nearly any button 

Just to know how it works.

But let's take the mark missing textures button for example.
The DescID is IDC_TEXTURE_CHECKALLTEX.

Do you know a way to access it ?

I also tryed to implement the functions of the Button into my Layout via MenuAddCommand, but without any success.

import c4d, os
from c4d import *
from c4d import storage
from c4d.gui import GeDialog

BTN_VRAY = {"id": 1028, "name": "CHK_Alle ersetzen", "width": 8, "height": 8}
BTN_Test = {"id": 1029, "name": "Texturpfad ersetzen", "width": 150, "height": 25}
TXT_VRAY = {"id": 1030, "name": "Alle ersetzen", "width": 100, "height": 10, "borderstyle": BORDER_NONE}

class MyDialog(GeDialog) :
  def CreateLayout(self) :
      self.SetTitle("MyDialog")

self.AddButton(id = BTN_Test["id"],
                          flags=BFH_RIGHT,
                          initw=BTN_Test["width"],
                          inith=BTN_Test["height"],
                          name=BTN_Test["name"])
      if self.MenuAddCommand (c4d.IDM_CM_CLOSEWINDOW) == True:
              print "Done"

return True

def Command(self,id,msg) :
      if id==BTN_Test["id"]:
          MenuAddCommand (c4d.IDM_CM_CLOSEWINDOW) == True

return True

dialog = MyDialog()
dialog.Open(dlgtype=DLG_TYPE_MODAL_RESIZEABLE)
