I can't get the Content Browser to launch with the .lib4d/User/ folder selected by default.
I can successfully launch the CB to any other folder if it's a regular folder. But this .lib4d stuff is different.
The docs seem to indicate that I'm supposed to use URLs. But I can't get it to work:
Filename user_dir = "preset://user.lib4d/Objects/Cube"; SDKBrowserURL myUrl = SDKBrowserURL(user_dir); GePrint(myUrl.GetString()); // prints file://localhost/preset://user.lib4d/Objects/Cube SDKBrowser *cb = NULL; //Create a Content Browser instance Bool exists = cb->ExistsPreset(myUrl); //Returns 0...It doesn't find the objects directory even though it exists!! GePrint(LongToString(exists)); cb->OpenNewBrowser(myUrl, 0); //Supposed to open the Content Browser window at specific directory..But fails!!
What am I doing wrong?

Never mind. I managed figure it out.
I guess we must use the GetString() function on the presets locations.
This code will launch the Content Browser at the User Folder (if it exists)
Filename user_dir = "preset://user.lib4d/Objects"; SDKBrowser *cb = NULL; //Create a Content Browser instance cb->OpenNewBrowser(user_dir.GetString(), 0);

Thanks for sharing the solution.
I tried to solve this in python too, but did not manage?
Is it also possible in Python?

The content browser class is not wrapped in Python. You can however add a C++ function to your plugin
as you started to do here https://plugincafe.maxon.net/topic/7509/9393_return-string-to-python which
will open the SDK Browser for you.

Yes, this opens great opportunities.
