I'm trying to implement IK in my plugin, inside the method GetVirtualObjects().
If I add this:

BaseTag* ikTag = BaseTag::Alloc(Tkinematic_EX);  
if (!ikTag)  
  return nullptr;  

my plugin just returns nothing... so my tag is empty :(

Does anybody know the problem here?
I've searched the web and the SDK, but neither of them have examples for IK.

Thanks in advance for your help and time!

as you can read in the documentation, Tkinematic_EX is deprecated. There seems to be no proper symbol, so you have to find out the ID with GetType() which is in this case 1019561.

best wishes,
