I've been messing with scripts, but not so much plugins.. so this is where I am a tad confused.
How would I access a menu item's dialog?
I would like to access Mesh->Commands->Reset Scale options dialog.
Now I would not necessarily need to open said dialog, just make sure certain things are checked.
A macro, if you will.
I've located the properties of the dialog in resource\res\dialogs\r_resetaxis.res
However, I have no idea how to use that to execute it those commands.

you cannot edit this dialog or set it's values. But you can execute a special modeling command using SendModelingCommand():
settings = c4d.BaseContainer() settings[c4d.MDATA_RESETSYSTEM_COMPENSATE] = True settings[c4d.MDATA_RESETSYSTEM_RECURSIVE] = True utils.SendModelingCommand(command = c4d.MCOMMAND_RESETSYSTEM, list = [op], bc = settings, doc = doc)

Thank you so much for your quick response!
So that format can be applied to any dialog box, correct? ( Well, any command listed in the SDK )
If this is the case, you have just opened up a world of options for me!
This is going to be fantastic!

SendModellingCommand has nothing to do with dialogs. It simply calls a command with the given settings (these settings are typically presented in a dialog but this function may not necessarily interfere with that).
You can use CallCommand to execute every command that is registered in Cinema (also plugin commands).
