Hello,

in my tag plugin, I build dynamical an combo box in the GetDDescription( ... ) function.
But this function will be called only if I select this object or tab in the attribute manager, so if this tab already open and I like to updating this combo box I need an update message or something like that. How can I do this?😢

Try sending a core message:

SendCoreMessage(COREMSG_CINEMA,BaseContainer(COREMSG_CINEMA_FORCE_AM_UPDATE),0);

If that doesn't do it, you could also force the AM to re-open the tag's description by doing:

ActiveObjectManager_SetMode(ACTIVEOBJECTMODE_TAG, FALSE);

(include lib_activeobjectmanager.h from the API).
