File text not displaying [SOLVED]

I have a plugin with FILENAME FILE01_LINK { } in the .res file.

In the .pyp file I have the following:

FILE01_LINK         = 1005,

def Init(self, op) :
        self.InitAttr(op, str, [1005])
op[1005] = "Test"

For some reason I can't get any text to display in the file text field, unless I type it in or load a file by clicking on the ... to the right of the file input area.
When I drag the description text into the console I get: print pluginTest[c4d.FILE01_LINK] OK
On the next line the console prints Test
This confirms that my File string is in memory as the value of op[1005], but it is not being displayed to the user.  What could cause this?  I can show more of my plugin if needed.
