Remove One SelectionSet to Another One

Hi,

 

Assuming the model space is active with a zoom extents, my question is:

 

I have 2 selection sets:

- ssA= The first one that contains all the entities (SelectAll).

- ssB= The second one that as been made using the SelectCrossingWindow method.

 

What I want is to remove the 2nd selection set from the first one: in other words, to get (ssA-ssB).

 

In VBA, I remember we had a RemoveItems method, but it seems not in VB.NET.

 

Have you an idea to make this substraction?

I repeat that ssB contains SelectedObjectByWindow...

 

Thanks,

You might want to look closely at FromObjectIds method:

 

Dim newSset As SelectionSet  = SelectionSet.FromObjectIds(ids)

 

 

See docs

Hi all,

 

Thanks...

 

but I found the answer by myself before :smileytongue:

 

Something like:

 

ssA = New ObjectIdCollection(objSS.GetObjectIds())

for each objId As ObjectID in ssB.GetObjectIds()
     ssA.Remove(objId)
next

Good point

If this is interesting for somebody else

here is how to apply FromObjectIds method to solve this task

{code}

       <CommandMethod("SELWP")> _
        Public Sub WindowPolygonSelect()

            Dim doc As Document = Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument

            Dim db As Database = doc.Database

            Dim ed As Editor = doc.Editor

            Dim aset As ObjectIdCollection = Nothing

            Dim bset As List(Of ObjectId) = Nothing

            Dim ppo As New PromptPointOptions(vbLf & "Pick first corner: ")

            Dim res As PromptPointResult

            res = ed.GetPoint(ppo)

            If res.Status <> PromptStatus.OK Then

                Return

            End If

            Dim p1 As Point3d = res.Value

            Dim pco As New PromptCornerOptions(vbLf & "Pick opposite corner: ", p1)

            pco.BasePoint = p1

            pco.UseDashedLine = True

            res = ed.GetCorner(pco)

            If res.Status <> PromptStatus.OK Then

                Return

            End If

            Dim p2 As Point3d = res.Value
            Try
                Using tr As Transaction = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction()

                    Dim sresA As PromptSelectionResult

                    Dim filterList(,) As Object = New Object(,) {{-4, "<or"}, {0, "text"}, {0, "mtext"}, {0, "dimension"}, {0, "insert"}, {0, "leader"}, {-4, "or>"}}

                    Dim tvs(filterList.GetUpperBound(0)) As TypedValue

                    For i As Integer = 0 To filterList.GetUpperBound(0)

                        tvs(i) = New TypedValue(Convert.ToInt32(filterList(i, 0)), filterList(i, 1))

                    Next

                    Dim filt As SelectionFilter = New SelectionFilter(tvs)

                    sresA = ed.SelectCrossingWindow(p1, p2, filt)

                    If res.Status <> PromptStatus.OK Then

                        Return

                    End If

                    Dim ssA As SelectionSet

                    ssA = sresA.Value

                    If ssA Is Nothing Then

                        ed.WriteMessage(vbLf & "Nothing selected...")

                        Return

                    End If

                    ed.WriteMessage(vbLf & "Selected by crosing window:   {0}", ssA.Count)

                    Dim idsA As ObjectId() = ssA.GetObjectIds

                    aset = New ObjectIdCollection(idsA)

                    Dim sresB As PromptSelectionResult

                    sresB = ed.SelectAll

                    ed.WriteMessage(vbLf & "Selected all:   {0}", sresB.Value.Count)

                    Dim ssB As SelectionSet

                    bset = New List(Of ObjectId)

                    ssB = sresB.Value

                    If ssB Is Nothing Then

                        ed.WriteMessage(vbLf & "Nothing selected...")

                        Return

                    End If

                    Dim idsB As ObjectId() = ssB.GetObjectIds

                    For Each id As ObjectId In idsB

                        If Not aset.Contains(id) Then

                            bset.Add(id)

                        End If

                    Next

                    ssB = SelectionSet.FromObjectIds(bset.ToArray)

                    ed.SetImpliedSelection(ssB)


                    ed.WriteMessage(vbLf & "Now in selection is :   {0}", ssB.Count)


                    tr.Commit()

                End Using

            Catch ex As System.Exception

                MsgBox(ex.Message + vbCrLf + ex.StackTrace)

            Finally

            End Try

        End Sub

{code}
