Hi
Have a form with a button. When button is pick want to hide form then select
object on screen and return to form.

Can't find any info on how to use SelectOnScreen. Am using Studio.net with
Revit API.
Appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Robert,

Unfortunately, there is no SelectOnScreen method in the Revit API.
You'll need to use the ActiveSelection in order to interact with the user.

Also, this .NET discussion group is for AutoCAD. I suggest you post
your Revit API questions on the ADN discussion groups or at AUGI's site:

Hope that helps,

Robert,

I'm surprised that ADN sent you here. Autodesk only supports the Revit
API through ADN, and you should get access to a developer to help you
(if you're a member). I'm not an ADN member, so I'm not sure where to
point you there, sorry.

Outside of that you're left to only a few of us who are actually working
with it. Some of the developers read the AUGI posts and sometimes
reply, but they aren't obligated to do so. Your best bet for all Revit
related discussions outside of ADN is at AUGI.

Robert,

One more thing. On the Revit disk there are some sample applications
which will definitely help you if you're just starting with the Revit
API. These samples and the API were improved with 8.1, so if you're
working with 8.0, I suggest you get the update.

Hope that helps,
-Danny
