Finding An Object with the ID Property using the Active X Control

I've got a 3D DWF File that I'm trying to isolate an object in. But the only information I know about the object is its UID value, which matched the Object's ID property. Note that ObjectContent2.get_Obect does not work for me unless I can somehow convert the UID value to that object id value, which is different.


Right now I've got a basic loop that finds the object, which looks something like this:

                      foreach (IAdObject2 MyObject in MyObjects)
                    foreach (IAdProperty MyObjectProperty in MyObject.Properties)
                        if (MyObjectProperty.Name == "Id" && MyObjectProperty.Value == RevitDWFGUIDstr)
                            MyObjectsNamedCollection.AddNamedItem(MyObject, RevitDWFGUIDstr);
                    if (MyObjectsNamedCollection.Count > 0)


For big models, this nested loop is taking a while. Is there anyway to make this process quicker? I am only looking for 1 kind of object (Doors). Is there someway that I could filter down my objects collection to consist of only Doors? Or any other possible method for trimming down the number of objects that I'm looking at?


Many thanks.
