Send Message to Weight Tag

Hello Forum,

I'm writing a script to resize a rig and would like to send c4d.ID_CA_WEIGHT_TAG_SET to a weigh tag.

I found this C++ link:

This does not work:

tag.Message(c4d.MSG_DESCRIPTION_COMMAND, c4d.DescID(c4d.DescLevel(c4d.ID_CA_WEIGHT_TAG_SET)))

Python Error:

Traceback (most recent call last) :
  File "'active-layer.pypv'", line 515, in CoreMessage
  File "'active-layer.pypv'", line 176, in ActiveLayerIsOn
TypeError: C4DAtom.Message expected dict, not c4d.DescID

So I made a guess and this seems to work:

tag = op.GetTag(c4d.Tweights)
data = dict()
data['id'] = c4d.ID_CA_WEIGHT_TAG_SET
tag.Message(c4d.MSG_DESCRIPTION_COMMAND, data)

Is this the correct way to Message() a C4DAtom with a script?

Thank you,

Joe Buck

Hi Joe,

there's nothing wrong with your solution.
A bit shorter, the same could be achieved by using CallButton(), but there's really no difference otherwise.
