    In the attributes panel there´s an option
    called "User data" where one can additional
    values to a tag.

    Is it possible to retrieve that data with
    coffee?

    I´m looking for a way to add custom data that
    can later be read by an export script.
    Maybe there´s another (better) way to do this?

    Thanks,
    Florian

    No, not in C.O.F.F.E.E.
    You could create a custom tag to do this... ;-)

    that doesn´t work, unfortunately, not even with GetID. And even if it worked, it is still questionable, if it is possible to add a dialog to the tag via coffee.
    So, the only solutions seems to be to let the PlugIn watch for events and open a dialog when selection changes.

    See the other thread for the tag issue.
    As long as the right events are there I guess that's fine, but you should know that the set of available events is pretty small.

    Before I switched to c++ I had the same problem. I solved it this way:
    userdata -> XPresso -> object name -> coffee.
    means: If you only have a couple of parameters you may read them with an XPresso-Expression and code it into the object's name (e.g.: "male_30_175"). Your coffee-expression then can decode the name string to values.

    well, now I know how to make custom tags and can do it that way, but using XPresso to change the name, if certain values are set can be very helpful as well!

    thx
