    Hi,

    Whenever we hover the mouse over a button it gets highlighted. Is there any option to turn it off.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    for standard buttons, I don't think this is possible. But you could use a bitmap button instead. Of course this implies doing the button graphics yourself.

    EDIT: Sorry, my first attempt was no good.

    Of course the standard buttons don't have any highlighting at all. So I guess your question is actually referring to BitmapButtons. I hope to return with a solution tomorrow.

    Nishant,

    the BitmapButton has no option to deactivate the highlighting on mouse over.
    You can fake it by setting the background color of the BitmapButton, but this is impossible via resource file.

    You'll need to modify your bitmap button dynamically in GetDDescription().
    Unfortunately GetDDescription() is not available via Python... 😢

    In C++ it would look like so:

    Bool MyPlugin::GetDDescription(GeListNode* node, Description* description, DESCFLAGS_DESC& flags)
    {
      const DescID*   singleid;
      DescID          cid;
      BaseContainer*  bcDesc;
      
      if (!description->LoadDescription(node->GetType())) return FALSE;
      singleid = description->GetSingleDescID();
      cid = DescLevel(YOUR_BITMAP_BUTTON_ID, CUSTOMDATATYPE_BITMAPBUTTON, 0);
      if ((!singleid) || (cid.IsPartOf(*singleid, NULL)))
      {
        bcDesc = description->GetParameterI(cid, NULL);
        bcDesc->SetLong(BITMAPBUTTON_BACKCOLOR, COLOR_BGFOCUS); // you may choose other colors here
      }
      flags |= DESCFLAGS_DESC_LOADED;
      return TRUE;
    }

    Since Cinema 4D version 18.011 GetDDescription() is available in Python as well.
