    Depends on what you do mean with hidden child structure :

    1. a cache containing multiple objects
    2. actually a list of hidden nodes parented with the GeListNode attached to your plugin

    With selecting you mean displaying the description of one of these childs instead of the parent nodes 
    description I suppose ? The easiest way to override selections is a MessageData plugin, simply listen 
    to EVMSG_CHANGE and cache your the current selection state (in your case the object selection). 
    Then update the selection using the cache as a reference ( remove objects of type of your plugin and 
    insert the nodes you want to insert instead ).

    ObjectData.Message() does not receive attribute/object manger selection state related messages (at 
    least I am not aware of one), but you can of course always read the nodes (n)bits in your plugin class 
    to react to selection states.
