I am having trouble understanding how to do parameters properly : There seems to be no documented way of setting variables in the string table, or how to set up .rc files. I have a plugin where the user can select the file he wants to open. So far I have a hacky fileName string edit box running for that. I would like to have a string edit box + file open button combo to work so that the user can browse the file from that button, or if he wants, just set the file name directly from max script. A similar save button would also be desired at some point. But my guess is that it is pretty close in implementation to the open combo. I have also attached an image depicting what I need.
My current implementation looks like this :
cacheReader_fileName, _T("fileName"), TYPE_FILENAME, P_ANIMATABLE, IDS_FILENAME,
//Zero or more optional tags
p_ui, TYPE_EDITBOX, IDC_FILENAME,
