Hey, I'm fairly new to plugin creation in Adobe products / After Effects and I'm hoping you can help me.

 

I'm trying to create an event via CSInterface whenever a layer is selected within a comp.

I then want to adjust my HTML5 Panel accordingly to the selected layer.

 

Is this possible and if so, how?

 

I couldn't find anything about this behaviour.

 

Also: If somebody has any link to a good ressource for CSInterface.js and it's communication with After Effects and my panel I would highly appreciate it.

 

Thank you.

I don't think there is any such thing. AE is basically "stateless" with everything being defined by the property streams and their contexts, give or take a few hard-coded UI functions. That's why you explicitly have to check selection states i nscripts for instance because AE has no built-in automatic functions for this.
