Can anyone tell me how to set the BORDER_OUT option for a bitmap button that's on a tag?
Oddly enough. I can create a copy of the button and then set the BORDER_OUT option just fine.
But I can't figure out how to do it to the original bitmap button.

//The .res file
BITMAPBUTTON IMG_BUTTON {ANIM OFF;}

//The .cpp code

Bool SimpleTag::GetDDescription(GeListNode *node, Description *description,DESCFLAGS_DESC &flags)  
{  
  BaseTag *tag = (BaseTag* )node;  
  BaseContainer *data = tag->GetDataInstance();  
  if (!description->LoadDescription(node->GetType())) return FALSE;  
  
  const DescID *singleid = description->GetSingleDescID();  
  
  DescID cid = DescLevel(IMG_BUTTON, DTYPE_BUTTON, 0);       //My bitmap button's ID is "IMG_BUTTON"  
  BaseContainer bmbBC;  
  if (!singleid || cid.IsPartOf(*singleid,NULL))             //important to check for speedup c4d!  
  {  
      bmbBC.SetLong(DESC_CUSTOMGUI, CUSTOMGUI_BITMAPBUTTON); //<--This makes a copy of the bitmap button  
      bmbBC.SetLong(BITMAPBUTTON_BORDER, BORDER_OUT);        //The copy has an out border... but original button does not!?  
      bmbBC.SetBool(BITMAPBUTTON_BUTTON, TRUE);   
  }  
  if (!description->SetParameter(cid,bmbBC,DescLevel(ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES))) return FALSE;  
  
  
  flags |= DESCFLAGS_DESC_LOADED;  
  
  return TRUE;  
}

might be a bit simple, but have you tried to return a call to the parent class instead
of a straight True ?

return SUPER::GetDDescription(node, description, flags);

the sdk also says :

Note:  Only return [FALSE](file:///D:/Incoming/help/pages/ge_sys_math/enum_BoolConstants150.html#FALSE1) if a massive error occured, e.g. a failed memory allocation. Don't return [FALSE](file:///D:/Incoming/help/pages/ge_sys_math/enum_BoolConstants150.html#FALSE1) if a description parameter can't be found for instance.

Calling to the SUPER class has no bearing on changing the bitmap button's options.
I wish it was that simple.

Ugh. Unbelievable.
I've managed to figure it out. And boy was this thing obscure and hard to figure out.
