Is it possible to add a tag to an object my make it invisible in the Object Manager?
For example, may I add a Tcoffeeexpression tag to an object but hide that tag?

As far as I know.
The only way to hide a tag with Coffee is to do it in a tag plugin like this: myTag::DisplayAllowed() { return FALSE; }

Thank you Scott.
I already knew that one and I already used it in a tag that I created for one of my plugins.
But what I need is to hide a COFFEE tag.
I know that some tags are invisible by default. Could that be a bit that is set in the container of the tags?

I've never seen anything like that. Not even the C++ SDK.
The only way I can see how to hide a tag like that is to:
-Select the object and assign it to a layer
-Select the tag and assign it to another layer
-Solo the object's layer & lock the tag's layer

This is doable with C++ and Python. But I don't know about with Coffee.
I seem to recall that Coffee had very limited layer support. But that was a while ago and I can't remember.

Probably not what you're wanting. But it's the only way I know how to hide tags at will like that.
Maybe someone else will know a better way.

In C++ you can use the PLUGINFLAG_HIDE in the RegisterTagPlugin-Function.

And the method mentioned by Satara is basically 'permanent' since the tag is either visible or hidden for good when the plugin is registered at startup of C4D.

So, even if I set the PLUGINFLAG_HIDE with tag->SetBit(PLUGINFLAG_HIDE); it will not make it invisible? 😞
