I have a spline parameter declared in GetDDescription() like this:

cid = DescLevel(idSpline, CUSTOMDATATYPE_SPLINE, 0);  
if (!singleid || cid.IsPartOf(*singleid,NULL))  
BaseContainer bc;  
bc = GetCustomDataTypeDefault(CUSTOMDATATYPE_SPLINE);  
if(!description->SetParameter(cid, bc, DescBaseGroup)) return TRUE;   

This seems to work perfectly, except when I right click on it in the Attribute Manager and click Show in separate window, it opens an empty dialog.

Is there a setting or something I'm missing?

As always, thanks!

Unfortunately, I don't have a solution for you right now. I've forwarded this to the developers.

Ah, that didn't show up to me when I was doing my search because I was looking for CUSTOMDATATYPE_SPLINE instead of CUSTOMGUI_SPLINE, thanks for the info.

I am trying to get a spline in the node description, instead of a dialog, I'm not sure if that is a different problem or the same one.

I figured out the problem I was having with the node description, I had messed up my group parameter descriptions, fixing those made it work.
