    How can I add a userdata combobox using python?

    Define a long and adding children to it does not work.

                bc = c4d.GetCustomDatatypeDefault(c4d.DTYPE_LONG) # Create default container
                bc[c4d.DESC_NAME] = "Point" # Rename the entry
                element1 = node.AddUserData(bc) # Add userdata container
                node[element1] = 2 # Assign a value
                bc = c4d.GetCustomDatatypeDefault(c4d.DTYPE_CHILDREN) # Create default container
                bc[c4d.DESC_NAME] = "Name 01" # Rename the entry
                element11 = node.AddUserData(bc) # Add userdata container
                node[element11] = "Name 01" # Assign a value

    Great, thank you.

    And I guess, adding or changing the list of names is then just using BaseList2D.SetUserDataContainer().

    Edit or add things to the "names" BaseContainer() to change the things in the list.
    SetUserDataContainer() updates the UD after you've changed something inside it.
