    Is it possible to select and deselect Description groups via code ?
    As if someone clicked them.

    I need to do this in MaterialData's GetDDescription.

    Thank you for your time.

    I'm afraid, I do not fully understand your request. Sorry!
    What do you mean with select and deselect Description groups?
    Are you talking about parameter groups with a foldable bar on top?
    If so, then it's not possible, see this thread.

    A default C4D material has the following groups visible by default: Basic, Color, Reflectance, Illumination, Editor and Assign.

    My MaterialData has 3-4 top groups of parameters (basic, group1, group2, group3).
    Nothing is hidden, so the group list shows all 4 of them.
    I want to click a button on group 1 and automatically make group1 unselected and group2 selected, as if I simply clicked group2.

    I am not referring to collapsible groups such as Layer Color and Layer Mask in Reflectance group of C4D material.

    Thank you.

    Ah, I see.
    No, this is not possible, either. Sorry.
    These states is handled inside of the different dialogs/CustomGUIs, after all you can have multiple views on the same material (Material Editor and multiple Attribute Managers), which all have different states and show different views of the same material.
