i came accros a problem with using coffee for selecting tag, check the file and u will see that SetBit(BIT_ATAG) selects the tag in object manager but doesnt refresh attributes manager, i tried refreshing with EventAdd() but it doesnt make a diference, anyone knows how could i solve this?

In the example file, there are no brackets after EventAdd.

After adding them, e.g. deleting the first of two or more tags will result in the next tag being selected AND shown in the AM. Its parameters will remain displayed in the AM after clicking in the OM or viewport.

Darter, its not the point in how many tags are there, all i want that AM refreshes to see the tags properties...

This was just an example of a situation under which the AM refreshes. It doesn't behave this way without brackets and I thought this information might be useful.

If I understand correctly what you're after, using SetActiveTag seems to work okay under all circumstances.

now where did i miss SetActiveTag :(
i gues i thought that if setbit works for objects it "should" for tags the same way...

many many thanx! :D
