Hi,
I have seeked for it in the old forum already and found this posting:
http://www.plugincafe.com/forum_browse.asp?messageID=372
There Mikael is saying that there is a way in the objectplugin (objectdata) class to detect the evaluation of a plugin in the editor/renderer.
I need exactly this right now 🙂 Could somebody tell me how to detect the evaluation in an object plugin?
Thanks very much!
Best
Samir

ok, found out for rendering in the external renderer, but can I detect it for the editor renderer too? I checked if the document is cloned. But that doesn´t include the editor renderer. :
Thanks in advance

That's not what I was referring to in the message you cite. It was just "to detect if a plugin is evaluated by the editor or renderer", i.e. to call HierarchyHelp::GetVFlags().
There's no public message sent to objects when the rendering starts.

I'm not sure if I understand your question (and it looks like it may have already been answered), but I've found that when GetVirtualObjects() is called...
  if ( !(hh->GetVFlags() & VFLAG_INTERNALRENDERER) && !(hh->GetVFlags() & VFLAG_EXTERNALRENDERER))
{
   // you're in the editor
}
...though this may be an invalid assumption on my part ;).

Hi guys,
thanks for your answers. Actually this inquiry is about half a year old. I already found a way to do so and am already using it in my DPIT Plugin.
Thanks anyway 🙂
