Setting doodle options

I want to set the Load Bitmap option of a Doodle Object.
I can do that by using a CallButton, but then the user has to select a bitmap.
I want to do it automatically, so set the bitmap using python.
Looking at the Doodle Object, it seems a hidden Tag is connected to the object, storing all the information(?).
<c4d.BaseTag object called 'Doodle Image/Doodle Image' with ID 1022211 ...>
So it would seem to me that the bitmap information is also stored somewhere in the tag.
Below script gave me some information.
I searched H and RES files to get more information, but so far I do not get the bitmap information.
doodleobj = doc.SearchObject("Doodle Object") bc = doodleobj.GetDataInstance() link = bc.GetLink(1002) print link if (link) : print link print "name:", link[c4d.ID_BASELIST_NAME] print "link:", link[c4d.DOODLEOBJECT_IMAGE] print link.GetType()

This is unfortunately not possible. The bitmap is stored in an internal
member of the tag. Bitmaps can not be stored in containers.

Well, in theory, you could implement a CustomDataType that holds a Basebitmap. That way, you could put it into a BaseContainer. But I'd say: too much work for too little benefit.
