    Hello,
    I have two questions.

    1. How can I create and assigned an LinearSpline to a SplineData ?
    I like to build an linear sline as default spline in an own CUSTOMDATATYPE_SPLINE.

    2. If I have an existing spline, I can set the ranges with "AdaptRange(...)". But the dialog or
    the GUI doesn't updated. Only if I open the dialog in a separate window it's updated. Which
    message or command do I need ?😢

    thanks
    Marky

    Hi,

    how can I call the "Frame All" from the popup menu from a SplineGUI ?
    Because I have to update the ranges.
    😢

    You can call SplineData::MakeLinearSplineLinear() or SplineData::MakeLinearSplineBezier(). In the SDK examples, HairStylingTag::Init() shows how to init a SplineData.

    In what method of your plugin do you call AdaptRange() ?

    Hi, thanks for the first point.

    Relating to the second point, I like to change the range for the spline, not from 0 to 1 but -20 to +80. It's depend from 4 input properties (LONG values,  xmin, xmax, ymin and ymax). So I receive an message MSG_DESCRIPTION_CHECKUPDATE if something changed and than I like to adapt the range for the slides. I call the AdaptRange() function or/and also the SetRange() function but the GUI doesn't updated. Only if I select the "Frame All" from the popup menu.

    Why do you need to adapt and/or set the range at a MSG_DESCRIPTION_CHECKUPDATE ?
    You should only call AdaptRange() and/or SetRange() in Read() or Init() of your plugin to initialize SplineData range and get a GUI update.

    Take a look at the spline deformer shape. If you change the radius value, the spline is updated but not the X range. As you said before, to update it we have to open the spline in a new window or select "Frame All" menu item.
    There's no 'coding way' with the SDK to refresh the ranges.

    See "Spline GUI" section in "Changes since 12.048" documentation page.
