How to extract the intersection points between a polyline and another?

I have some experience with Vb.net.

But I have a problem:

I have a polyline

I select it

The result to be a message box with the intersection points for all the lines, polylines that intersect this polyline.


Can somebody point me to the right direction?

hi dan


have you tried making the selected polyline the 'fence' in a fence selection? (refer to the developer's guide for selecting objects in the drawing area.)


a. you could apply a selction filter depending on whether there are any specific objects you are looking for, and b. i'd imagine you can then go on identify the selected object types and use their respective intersect method(s) to get the sought info.
