I used the script below to allow deactivation of the plugin update notifications, by writing a .txt file under the writeable startup directory of cinema 4d.
Is it possible to do that without writing a .txt file?

I have simplified this code, just to give you an idea of what I want to do.

filePath = os.path.join(, 'plugins', 'PluginName', 'notification.txt')  
CHECKBOX = 1001  
class updateDialog( c4d.gui.GeDialog) :  
  def CreateLayout(self) :  
      self.AddCheckbox(CHECKBOX, c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT, 0, 0, name=" Don't show this message again! ")  
      return True  
  def Command(self, id, msg) :  
      if self.GetBool(CHECKBOX) == True :          
          fn = filePath, os.O_WRONLY|os.O_TRUNC|os.O_CREAT, 0600)  
          os.write(fn, "Disable Update Notifications")  
      return True  
class MyClass(c4d.plugins.CommandData) :  
  def Execute(self, doc) :  
      if not os.path.exists(filePath) :  
          dlg = updateDialog()  
          dlg.Open(c4d.DLG_TYPE_MODAL, xpos= 700, ypos= 250, defaultw=600, defaulth=0)  
      return True

Hi Mustapha,

you could store this information in the "world container".
You can get that BaseContainer via GetWorldContainerInstance().
But please don't store the information directly in there. Instead get a PluginID and store a BaseContainer at that ID in the world container. Then you can store whatever you want in your own BaseContainer.
