I have a generator plugin that adds a light virtually to the scene through GetVirtualObjects() and also adds a sun expression tag to that light.  I am running in to a problem when I try to change parameters on the generator object which are supposed to update parameters in the sun expression tag, nothing happens.  However, when I make the generator object editable suddenly the changes I made to the parameters take effect on teh sunexpression tag.  Do I need to do something special for the sunexpression tag to update with each change in the parameters?  How would i accomplish this?

Thanks.

Shawn

Did you send a Message(MSG_CHANGE) to the tag after changing the parameters?
