Default Process for activation/deactivation

Can I check if the plugin is activated ?

For example in Reaper near plugin list is a checkbox for activation/deactivation, can to check the state of this from plugin ?

I test void OnActivate(bool active) with no success.

Not sure exactly what you want to do, but OnActivate is of return type void, so it's not a test. The comments make it clear it's not for what you think it's for, and the default, essentially null implementation is not overriden:

Code:
  // Not usually needed ... Reset is called on activate regardless of whether this is implemented.
  // Also different hosts have different interpretations of "activate".
  // Implementations should set a mutex lock like in the no-op!
  virtual void OnActivate(bool active) { TRACE;  IMutexLock lock(this); }

I didn't say that OnActivate() returns a Boolean variable or another!

I asked if it is called when the user presses the bypass/activate button from host.

There is a function called when the plugin is bypass from host? Or if I can check the status of the active/bypass plugin.

Not sure if there is a function to return the status - you may have to roll your own - check for “mIsBypassed”.

There it's a function bool GetIsBypassed() { return mIsBypassed; } but don't works, allways return false.

I don't understand why there are these functions that don't work. It creates confusion.
