Hi everybody,

I added a FILENAME element to a description resource. The docs say, it only has "SAVE" and "DIRECTORY" as params.

How are those other flags set (Force suffix, File Type, Title, etc.)?
For the simplicity, I'd like to circumvent having to add a string field + button or even implementing a custom gui.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

I guess you talk about the options of calling Filename::FileSelect()? The options of this function are just this – the options of this function. They have nothing to do the a FILENAME parameter description. It appears that there are no options of this parameter description to configure the file selection dialog it might open.

Best wishes,

I see.
A solution would be a CustomGui then?


edit: Never mind. After I took a look at C4D's Bake Texture - Tag, an additional Format Parameter is more than sufficient. ;)
