    Hi,

    does anybody have an idea how to get the active channel shader?
    That would be the one that the user is currently editing in the material editor.

    Thanks in advance for any tips!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    I don't think this is possible. Considering inline editing for example there can be several active channel shaders. Also even though there is only on Material Editor there can be multiple Atrribute Managers.

    Then I would have expected to get all those shaders that are currently being edited in an AtomArray, just like I get all acive Objects in an AtomArray from GetActiveObjects().

    But OK, in the meantime I changed several things in my code, and I don't really need to get the active shader anymore. But it would still be nice to have the possibility ;-)
