Tag Plugin, action when user drags into Link

    So I have an object in a Link box in the GUI of my tag plugin that once the user has dragged an object into I want to get the y value of that position.

    I am doing processing in the "Execute" function of the inherited "plugins.TagData" class but it is getting the value everytime.

    Where should I add the code to get the object's y position the first time the user drags an object to the link box?  Should I put it in the "Message" function and use the "type" parameter via

    if type==c4d. _MSG_DRAGANDDROP_ :  
    If so it doesn't seem to be working.  Any guidance would be very helpful, thanks!

    Just remember when you obtained the value the first time and don't re-obtain it when
    you already have it.

    You are right, when I first obtain it I write it into a global variable which I don't change.  That solved the issue.

    Global variable? Sounds bad for a tag, what if the tag is there two times?
