Hi guys,

I'm having trouble with Multi-Selection buttons returning the correct results.
I'm trying to get a print result only when the multi-button is changed to a specific option.

Here is my code:

EXECUTIONRESULT MyTag::Execute(BaseTag *tag, BaseDocument *doc, BaseObject *op, BaseThread *bt, LONG priority, EXECUTIONFLAGS flags)  
{  
  if (tag->GetData().GetBool(MYBOX)) // if the MYBOX checkbox attribute is enabled  
  {    
   GePrint("CheckBox is enabled"); // This Works fine          
  }      
  
  if (tag->GetData().GetLong(MULTIBUTTON, TWO)) // if the multi-button is set to this mode  
  {  
      GePrint("Option Two Selected"); //<--- This Does not work!! It always prints.. no matter what option is selected!!  
  }      
    
  return EXECUTIONRESULT_OK;  
}

Here is what's in my .res file:

CONTAINER Tmytag  
{  
  NAME Tmytag;  
  INCLUDE Texpression;  
  INCLUDE Obase;      
    
  GROUP ID_TAGPROPERTIES  
  {  
  COLUMNS 1;              
  BOOL MYBOX { }  
    GROUP  
    {  
    COLUMNS 1;  
      
  LINK MY_LINK  
  {   
  ACCEPT { Obase; }   
  REFUSE { Osky; Oforeground; }  
  }  
  
    SEPARATOR { LINE; }  
    BUTTON BUTTON1 {}        
    BUTTON BUTTON2 {}  
    //BUTTON BUTTON2 {HIDDEN;} //Use this to hide the button if desired  
      
    SEPARATOR { LINE; }  
    REAL MYSLIDER { UNIT PERCENT; MIN 0.0; MAX 100.0; MINSLIDER 0.0; MAXSLIDER 10000.0; CUSTOMGUI REALSLIDER; }        
    REAL MYNUMERIC {MIN 0.0; MAX 100.0; STEP 1;} //STEP controls the amount the values increase using the arrows   
    STRING MYTEXTBOX {ANIM OFF; } //ANIM OFF hides the set key option from the user  
  
    LONG    MULTIBUTTON  
      {  
      CYCLE  
        {                  
          ONE;  
          TWO;  
        }  
      }    
    }          
  }  
}

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

That's not how the BaseContainer works. 🙂

if (tag->GetData().GetLong(MULTIBUTTON) == TWO) ....

The second argument in the BaseContainer GetXXX() methods is a default value if the container ID has not been set.

Hey Guys,

I'm trying to do this with a Combo Button and a dialog now. But I can't figure out what it needs.

Bool myDialog::Command(LONG id,const BaseContainer &msg)    
{  
    
  switch (id)   
    {  
    case MY_BUTTON:  
      GePrint("Button Was Pressed");  //Works  
          break;  
  
    case MY_CHECKBOX:            
          GePrint("CHKBox was Toggled");  //Works  
          break;  
  
    case MY_COMBOBUTTON == SECOND_CHILD:  
          GePrint("Second Option Selected");//Does Not Work!              
          break;  
       
    }  
  
  return TRUE;  
}

If I use: case MY_COMBOBUTTON it works. But of course it always returns the print method. No matter which child option I select. Which is bad.
How do I get the child options of a ComboButton to return my print method if I only select a specific child?

Never mind.
I think I've managed to figure it out... At least one way anyway.

Bool myDialog::Command(LONG id,const BaseContainer &msg)    
{  
  LONG second = msg.GetLong(BFM_ACTION_VALUE);  //Assigns an action to a variable  
    
  switch (id)   
    {  
    case MY_BUTTON:  
      GePrint("Button Was Pressed");   
          break;  
  
    case MY_CHECKBOX:            
          GePrint("CHKBox was Toggled");   
          break;  
  
    case MY_COMBOBUTTON:              
          if(second == SECOND_CHILD) GePrint("Second Option Selected");              
          break;         
    }  
  
  return TRUE;  
}

This was NOT obvious at all.
Luckily the AsyncTest dialog plugin example in the SDK uses a Combo Button in it. And I was able to track down how it was working.
I never would have been able to figure this out from the docs.
