access the target of pose morph [SOLVED]

    hi , 
    I tried to add an object to morph "target" option

        obj = doc.GetActiveObject()
        corr= obj.GetDownLast()  #get the last child  
        if not corr : return False
        pmTag = obj.GetTag(c4d.Tposemorph) 
        mo = pmTag.AddMorph()
        count =mo.GetID()
        Id = 1000 + count*100 +1
        print Id

    I wanted to add it to the last morph (the one that was created with the script ) , so I made a little cheat get the Id , then do some math to match the style of the index (1101,1201,1301...etc )
    this cheat worked with the strength (I used the Id 4000 ) 
    but it does not seem to work with the target , it only affect the selected morph . 
    is there any way to make it affect specific morph ?
    or "force " select a morph with its index ?
    when I was searching in the older post , I found similar topic with C++ , but someone mentioned that Maxon made the tree view private so it is not possible to access it . 
    is there any workaround to this problem ?

    if I understand your intentions correctly you want to add a new morph and set the "Target" parameter?

    The pose morph tag has a dedicated API to use this tag: CAPoseMorphTag. This class includes SetActiveMorphIndex() which can be used to select a morph. With that morph select you can simply set the parameter:

    # create new morph  
    morph = morphTag.AddMorph()  
    if morph is None:  
    morph.SetName("New Morph")  
    # select latest morph  
    count = morphTag.GetMorphCount()  
    # set "Target"  
    morphTag[c4d.ID_CA_POSE_TARGET] = targetObject  

    best wishes,

    thanks for help , 
    it is working as expected :) 
    I didn't have this method in my python SDK , because I didn't updated it . 
    just to be sure , the user have to use the latest update of cinema 4d R17(.053) to use the script ?

    yes, some functions were added to the CAPoseMorphTag class with R17 SP3. So these functions are only available for users of this service pack or of R18.
