    When I try to execute the Character->Paint Tool  "Apply All" button to change the values of a vertex map tag. Nothing happens.
    There are no errors. But the vertex map tag doesn't update the strength value changes.

    I haven't tested all the options in the paint brush yet. But so far they all seem to work except for the two Apply buttons. So I'm wondering if I'm either not updating it properly, or if it's a bug?

    Here's the code:

      
    var obj = doc->GetFirstObject();  
    var mytag = obj->GetFirstTag(); //The first tag is a Vertex Map tag  
    tool()#ID_BRUSH_BASE_TOOL_STRENGTH=1; // Works fine  
    tool()#ID_CA_PAINT_TOOL_MODE=2; // Works Fine  
      
    tool()#ID_CA_PAINT_TOOL_APPLY_ALL; //Does not seem to work  
    //CallButton(mytag,ID_CA_PAINT_TOOL_APPLY_ALL); //Also does not seem to work  
      
    mytag->Message(MSG_UPDATE);  
    EventAdd();  
    

    I've tried the tool() method and the CallButton() method and neither one seems to work.

    Are we really supposed to go digging through the res->modules *.h files to get the ID's for theses things?
    Every time I do this I feel like I'm hacking into something that Maxon never intended for us to know about and use.

    There is an error in your CallButton() call. You have to pass the active tool.

    CallButton(tool(),ID_CA_PAINT_TOOL_APPLY_ALL);
    

    cheers,
