    Ok, I really need to know if someone else found this behaviour or if some of the gurus know where the problem may be according to what is happening.
    I did a plug-in that creates a non-modal dialog. When I dock the dialog in the layout (and save the layout as my default layout), after a few moments working (no matter what I do, moving, scaling, rotating, deleting, etc) the tab of my plug-in disapears from the layout and C4D just hangs!
    I don't even have to use the plug-in. It is just there, not even being the active tab.
    What could be wrong with it? This is driving me mad!! Thank you in advance for any help.

    p.s. Thank you to everyone who already helped me out with this, so far :-)

    Well, no one?
    Not even the ones that developed COFFEE?
    Could a memory leak cause this?
    Is anything called in the plug-in while it is docked?
    I placed println's all over the place and none of them showed up on the Console when it hanged...
    Whe guys who wrote the layout part of C4D could say what could cause a tool to vanish and hang C4D?
    Thank you.

    Do you know if this hang occurs on systems other than your own? do you have any other modeless COFFEE dialogs . I'll see what I can find out for you!

    a lotta messages. :) Did you check for those? Especially core messages or anything? Try to do some printouts in message methods.

    I couldn´t encounter any problems with my old COFFEE plugins that are all non-modal and docked in R8.

    Rui already tried that ;-) I would suggest trying some other non-modal COFFEE plugins, I've tried some here (Windows) and could get no hangs or problems. Maybe something is wrong on your system, are you using OS9?

    all over the place doesn´t mean much ;) Like me, I sometimes think some "areas" COULD NEVER be the problem, and so I am only checking the others, more (to me) obvious ones, and in the very next minute somebody (last 10.247 times it was you ;)) tells me that exactly THIS PART can ALWAYS be the problem. :)
    So being as clear as possible is the best way :) Check everything and all, twice. And for there really are a lotta Messages Cinema is sending out, this is the only place I could think of something like that spontaneously. None of my OLD! non-modal plugins had such problems and they are using almost any class available in the COFFEE SDK... (and that´s not that much :o)

    The onlt messages I'm sending are that the document has changed or that some specific object has changed. And the only thing that I'm changing is, mainly, object names.

    well, ok. ALL is more specific ;) just kidding. Well, I actually didn´t mean the messages YOU are sending but the (core)messages you receive in the corresponding methods of your plugin. But if you are not using them, well, then I can´t think of anything.
    Try to remove some lines of codes and check if it does still appear. It´s hard but well...
