Doug,
the fast solution to your problem is to unlock the “All parameters” list in windows: open your saved window, find the macro call for “gs_general_window_macro”, open that macro, and look for the macro call for “GS Corner Window Functions” (or “GS Window Functions” in some cases) in its parameter script. Open it, and comment the hideparameter all line in its paramscript (don’t forget to save: probably the easiest way to do this is to extract the library lcf to make it all writable). This will give you the All Parameters list back, where you can look for your new parameters.
To add them to the UI: if they are property parameters, I would insert them into the already existing Descriptions page (the macro of it is in “gs_general_window_macro”, called “ui_Description_m”, look for it in the UI script). Your new parameters should be added to the macro as well, and must be taken care of in the UI script of the macro, similar to the other, existing property parameters.
Hope this helps. Ask, if you need more specific assistance, or you want to create a separate page for your new parameters only.
