Is it possible to run the initialize button in the object properties of the surface deformer using python?

Thanks in advance!

The file with the ID's for the Surface deformer are found here:

You can execute any button. On any deformer. The same way.
You just have to find the IDs for the deformer and the specific button you want to execute.
Then change the ID in the code.

The IDs for the other deformers are stored in .h files inside of this folder:
C:\Program Files\MAXON\YOUR VERSION\resource\modules\ca\res\description folder.

#This is how to execute the Initialize button on the Surface deformer object  
import c4d  
def main() :  
  sd = doc.SearchObject("Surface")  
  #Executes the "Initialize" button  
if __name__=='__main__':
