MAXtoA will automatically create a default user interface for shaders. If you need to tweak the UI, you can do so by adding metadata to shader node and parameters. Adding metadata can be done in the shader code with the AiMetaDataSetX() API functions or by creating a .mtd text file next to the shader's dll, with the same base name. We suggest you study the .mtd files provided with the MAXtoA installation ('Plugins/MAXtoA/en-US' ) for inspiration.
