how can I start a def inside a class started from a def inside dialog class. I get a unbound python error.
thanks in advance.
some exmaple pseudocode
class dialog() : def maindialog() : worker.dosomething(dialogid=5) #error raised herer class worker() : dosomething(dialogid) : result = dialogid+10 return result

You are calling dosomething() with the class name alone, instead of with an instance of the class.
If that is really intended, you need to declare the method as @staticmethod.
import c4d class dialog() : @staticmethod def maindialog() : print worker.dosomething(dialogid=5) class worker() : @staticmethod def dosomething(dialogid) : result = dialogid+10 return result def main() : dialog.maindialog()

A method that is instance bound needs a parameter "self" so it can be called through
Then you can create a variable of the newly defined class, and call the methods on it:
import c4d class dialog() : def maindialog(self) : x = worker() print x.dosomething(dialogid=5) class worker() : def dosomething(self, dialogid) : result = dialogid+10 return result def main() : dlg = dialog() dlg.maindialog()
Nevertheless: These are totally basic Python concepts. If you struggle with these already, you should perhaps take a Python tutorial and familiarize yourself with Python and OOP concepts. I don't know whether you have any programming knowledge in some other language, but here is a tutorial that may be of help:
(There are tons of others on the web...)
"Winging it" will probably not do you any good if you need to ask for every little bit of information; this would make for a very frustrating experience.
