I'd like to hide the "Delete Tag" button on one of my objects.

I think the code should be like this:

myObject->SetDescIDState(DescID(ID_TAGLIST, Tprotection, IDS_DELETE_TAG), DESCIDSTATE_HIDDEN);  

I found IDS_DELETE_TAG inside c4d_strings.str, but I don't know how to include it in my project, if I have to, nor how to access it in a different way.

Does anybody know how to do this?

If you need more information, feel free to ask.

Thanks in advance for your help and time!

IDS_DELETE_TAG is the identifier of the label of the delete button, not its ID. Also, there is not only one delete tag button, but a delete button for each tag that is displayed with the object. It has to be this ways since every button deletes a different tag.

So to hide such a button you would have to construct the ID of that button. The ID is:

DescID tagid = DescID(DescLevel(ID_TAGLIST, DTYPE_GROUP, 0), DescLevel(tag->GetType(), DTYPE_GROUP, 0));  
DescID buttonid = tagid + DescLevel(501, DTYPE_BUTTON, 0);  

best wishes,
