    I can't find any reference to Tcaik (except for its own .h/.res/.str files) and definitely no Plugin ID to use to make one.  I've scanned the entire Cinema 4D R13 install and it didn't find a reference to the Plugin ID (not even in the c4d_symbols.h!).  And it is not available as a Command so I'm at a loss (except for a bit of coding to display the tag's Plugin ID myself).

    Not sure if this is what you're asking for:

    #include "..\..\..\..\resource\modules\ca\res\description	caik.h"  
      
      BaseDocument *doc = GetActiveDocument();  
      BaseObject *obj = doc->GetActiveObject();  
     if(!obj) return FALSE;  
       
      obj->MakeTag(1019561, NULL);                 //Create a new IK tag  
      BaseTag *newtag = obj->GetFirstTag();        //Find the new tag and give it a new variable  
      newtag->SetParameter(DescID(ID_CA_IK_TAG_ENABLE), GeData(TRUE), DESCFLAGS_SET_0); //Enable "Use Ik" option

    Where did you find the Plugin ID?  It is not anywhere in the install (incl. resource folder).  And it didn't show up in the Command Manager which shows the Plugin ID.

    I created the tag by hand.
    Then dragged it into the bottom of script console window where it displayed this: temp(1).
    So I edited that to this: println(temp(1)->GetType())
    Which gave me the ID#1019561 in the console.

    I went searching for that number using windows search tool. And oddly enough. I found it listed in a file called "interface_icons.txt" of all things.
    *Seems like a strange place to enumerate ID# to me personally.

    Thanks for the information.

    I hate when they do this.  It makes our work a bit more difficult, mystical and an art-form instead of being a regimented, clear-cut process.

    Now I can convert my IK chains to R12+ IK chains. :)

    I'm just thrilled I could finally help you out for once.
    Rather than you always helping me out.

    "interface_icons.txt" is just a file listing all the interface icons ID#.
