INCLUDE Ospline

    Hi. Sorry for so many questions:)

    Any ways, I am building my GUI in separate RES file. It looks somethings like this:

      
    CONTAINER Opluginname   
    {   
         NAME Opluginname;   
         INCLUDE Obase;   
         GROUP GROUP_MAIN   
         {   
              INCLUDE Ospline;   
              REAL REAL_RAND_SEED { UNIT REAL; }   
              REAL REAL_SEGMENTS { MIN 2; MAX 10000; STEP 1; UNIT REAL; }   
              REAL REAL_NUM_BRANCHES { MIN 1; MAX 10000; STEP 1; UNIT REAL; }   
              SEPARATOR { LINE; }   
         }   
    }   
    

    As you see, I am trying to include Ospline controls (INCLUDE Ospline) into my existing GUI. All works fine, except spline controls are in a separate tab. How do I include them in existing tab, GROUP GROUP_MAIN for instance.

    From preview - I want all control stuff from Object tab (these are spline controls that I create with INCLUDE Ospline) to be included in Spline tab. Is it possible? If not, maybe there's a way to at least rename that tab from Object to something else?

    By convention you need to call that first group 'ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES', not 'GROUP_MAIN'. Anything in a group with that name will go into a tab that Cinema will automatically name 'Object'. To create another tab, create a second group with whatever ID you like and make sure it has a corresponding entry in the .str file. (E.g. that would be 'Spline' in your case.) Then everything in that group will appear in the 'Spline' tab, so just put the include in that group.

    So your file might look like:

      
    CONTAINER Opluginname   
    {   
         NAME Opluginname;   
         INCLUDE Obase;   
         GROUP ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES   
         {   
              REAL REAL_RAND_SEED { UNIT REAL; }   
              REAL REAL_SEGMENTS { MIN 2; MAX 10000; STEP 1; UNIT REAL; }   
              REAL REAL_NUM_BRANCHES { MIN 1; MAX 10000; STEP 1; UNIT REAL; }   
         }   
         GROUP ID_SPLINETAB   
         {   
          // whatever other elements here...   
               INCLUDE Ospline;   
         }   
    }

    Additonally, it doesn't matter in what group you include a description, it will not appear in that specific group. It is just important for the order of the parameters (included parameters come first or at the end?).

    Yes, Niklas is correct. I thought this had worked for me in the past, but I can't get it to work now. It appears that the included description is always in the first tab, at the bottom of it.

    Not necessarily in the first tab, but in the groups the parameters were defined in the included description.

    GROUP Oincluded_res {
        GROUP GROUP_A {
            LONG PARAM_A_1 { }
        }
        GROUP GROUP_B {
            LONG PARAM_B_1 { }
        }
    }
      
    GROUP Ofinal_res {
        INCLUDE Oincluded_res;
        GROUP GROUP_A {
            LONG PARAM_A_2 { }
            GROUP GROUP_B {
                LONG PARAM_B_2 { }
            }
        }
    }
    

    Will evaluate to

    GROUP Ofinal_res {
        GROUP GROUP_A {
            LONG PARAM_A_1 { }
            LONG PARAM_A_2 { }
        }
        GROUP GROUP_B {
            LONG PARAM_B_1 { }
            LONG PARAM_B_2 { }
        }
    }
    

    Cheers,

    Thank you guys for your input.
    Indeed, it does nots matter in what group I add INCLUDE Ospline - it still appears in Object tab.
    Oh how I wish not to have this "Object tab" :)
