In GetDParameter() you should increment the 'dirty' variable of the BitmapButtonStruct everytime the bitmap needs to be updated.

Is it that simple? It doesn´t work for me. I am incrementing it all the time (dirty++) so it should update all the time shouldn´t it?
Thanks
Samir

Samir, I seem to be having a problem incrementing 'dirty'.
Can you possibly shed some light on how you got it working?

Thanks,

Chris

Here is a codesnippet:

Bool TreeGenData::GetDParameter(GeListNode* node, const DescID& id, GeData& t_data, LONG& flags)  
{   
     switch(id[0].id)   
     {   
          case TREEGEN_BEND_NOISE:     
               {     
                      
                    BitmapButtonStruct bbs(static_cast<PluginObject*>(node), id, bn_dirty);      
                      
                    t_data = GeData(CUSTOMDATATYPE_BITMAPBUTTON,bbs);      
                    flags |= DESCFLAGS_PARAM_GET;      
                    bn_dirty=0;  
                    break;  
               }  
  
                    case TREEGEN_BENDNOISETYPE:  
                    case TREEGEN_BENDNOISESPEED:  
                    case TREEGEN_BENDNOISEANIM:  
                    case TREEGEN_BENDNOISE_SCALE:  
                    case TREEGEN_BENDNOISE_WIND:  
                         bn_dirty++;  
                    break;  
                      
     }      
     return ObjectData::GetDParameter(node, id, t_data, flags);  
}

Hope that helps

Thanks Samir, that is pretty much identical to what I've been trying, except I have only been incrementing it in response to a combobox ID.

I tried with other control IDs, and everything seems to work except the combobox.

I even tried incrementing 'dirty' in 'default:' and it just wont respond to the combobox.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
