Check if an item in INCLUDE list was selected

I'm writing a plugin whose interface has an INCLUDE list.
When I simply click in an item in the list, I get no event in the Message method.
Clicking the items in the list doesn't trigger an event?
How can I react to the user simply clicking an item in the INCLUDE list?

Maybe I could store the value from InExcludeData.GetFlags(index), and check if it changed, from within a Timer.
But is it possible to assign a Timer to a tag layout that is loaded from a .res file?
If not, I may need to create a layout inside the tag.
Is there any framework for a tag that shows how to create a layout without using a .res file?

you can set the flag SEND_SELCHNGMSG in the description of your IN_EXCLUDE list. If the value of this flag is set to 1 the parameter will send MSG_DESCRIPTION_POSTSETPARAMETER to the tag's Message() function when the selection is changed.

I can now check that a new item in the list was clicked.
But, how can I check which one?
The SDK tells me that when I get a MSG_DESCRIPTION_POSTSETPARAMETER message, the corresponding data is in DescriptionPostSetValue but when I print the data variable, I always get None.

Also, the InExcludeData.GetFlags(index) is always returning 0 (zero)
Isn't there any way to detect which item is selected?

GetFlags() returns the bit field that stores the states of the optional boolean values, not the state if the element is selected in the GUI element.

It seems that there is no way to retrieve the information if a certain element is selected in an InExclude GUI element.

Oh, damn!!!
Thank you, Sebastian.
I guess I will have to get inventive.
