I've created a Find Object command using a COFFEE plugin I've written. Unfortunately it's case sensitive and there doesn't seem to be a case insensitive function in COFFEE, though I think there might be something like that in C++ which I can't use because of the learning curve - COFFEE is distraction enough from the creative work.
Another thing I'd love to have in my Find dialog box is the same forward lookup that you get in C4D native dialogs, saving you having to type the whole string.
A search of the old archive revealed there was a Japanese user who claimed to have the latter routine, but his site link returned Not Found and searching Google produced to result.
Does anyone have either of these two routines written in COFFEE that they could share? Or if you have it as a C++ library of some kind, would there be a way of making use of it in a COFFEE plugin?
I'm sure I'm not the only one who would hugely appreciate this. Once you start building dialogs to enter names of objects, you realize how much these two routines are needed.
Thanks in advance!
