(Also) in C++ I do not get the little arrow in front of the date and time to show (expand) the calendar and the clock?
dt = (DateTimeControl* )AddCustomGui(1002, DATETIME_GUI,"Date/Time",BFH_SCALEFIT|BFV_SCALEFIT,0,0,dtcont);

This is one of those odd gizmos that have to be expanded in the Init() function. Not in the CreateLayout() function.
That tripped me up too.
dt->SetLayoutMode(LAYOUTMODE_MAXIMIZED); //Works like "OPEN" does in the .res file
Be aware that most of the DT base container options are now depreciated.

Great, thank you.
Does it also means that we have to program the little collapse/expand arrow in front, ourselfs?
At the moment there is no such little arrow, so I assume you have to do it yourself.

Yeah. I think you'll have to create that effect yourself. Using a button that swaps an image when pressed. Or some other sort of trickery.
That little arrow only seems to get created when you use these custom gizmos in a Node based plugin. But not in a GeDialog plugin.
This is an example of creating the DT gizmo dynamically for a node (tag) plugin.
Just like when using the .res file to create the gizmo for these kinds of plugins. That little arrow automatically get created for us.
It's a built-in thing for the Node plugins that we get for free.
Bool SimpleTag::GetDDescription(GeListNode *node, Description *description,DESCFLAGS_DESC &flags)
//We will load the DateTime GUI into the first description level(much like loading UD entries into levels)
DescID did = DescLevel(1, DTYPE_NONE, 0);
if (!description->SetParameter(did,settings,DescLevel(ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES))) return FALSE;
flags |= DESCFLAGS_DESC_LOADED;

Thanks, indeed when using User Data and a Date/Time field you get the little arrow.
But doing that yourself in c++ is not a big issue. We discussed it in one of my previous posts.
Thanks for the example.
