how to get a reference to the open Xpresso window

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a Python script that generates an Xpresso node for an object with ports for all the User Data on that object.

In part 5, you'll learn how to use a new method in the CINEMA 4D R13 Python API to get a reference to the Xpresso window that's currently open. You'll also learn how to check the CINEMA 4D version and adapt the behavior in order to maintain compatibility with R12.
