Variables to dialog resource

Sorry if this is a newbie question. I'm making a python exporter and I'd like to show version of the plugin in the header and also a name of the object the user is exporting.

For example: "You are exporting object: " + op.GetName()

In script it was easy, I used a global variable, but now I'm trying to rework the script into a plugin and I don't understand how to get it into the . res file.

The string part comes from a .str resource, I got that... but where do I append the variable? I'm new to python modules as well and I guess the answer lies there somewhere.

Thank you.

What kind of plugin are you developing? A SceneSaverData? A CommandData?
Also do you want to set the title of the dialog or the text for another gadget?

Hi Yannick,
an open source plugin that exports meshes from the scene to json format, compatible with three.js webgl library. I have it working as a script and now I'm trying to rework it into a plugin.
I'd like a version number in the title of the dialog (preferably from a variable, appended to the name of the plugin) and selected object name also appended to a string in static text gadget in the dialog.
Can it be done? It was possible in the script. Should I share the code?
Thanks for helping me out.

Sharing the code (only the relevant part, ideally still runnabld) would help.

You can set the text on the title bar of a dialog with GeDialog.SetTitle()

Ah, ok that's a way to do it. I was looking for a way to access variables from the dialog template and it didn't occur to me I can set it after the dialog is loaded from the python code. Thanks for nudging me in the right direction. 🙂 Problem solved then.
