Selection

102 Views, 3 Replies
11-11-2005 10:18 AM
I'm working with VS 2003 and AutoCAD 2006. I am not using COM component (I'm using acdbmgd.dll et acmgd.dll)

Using VB.Net, I would like to select objects in a drawing without prompting the user to make the selection. I looked at the examples from Object ARX 2006 / samples / dotNet but it seems the user is always prompted to select objects. Does anyone know how to make the selection automatic without the user having to do anything?

I know that there is a bug with the filters in selectionset but I don't mind (il will probably make my own filter when I will read the data from the objects in the selectionset)

Do you *need* a selection set? You can iterate the appropriate BTR's and
find what you need without using an SS.

The Editor class has a SelectAll() method that takes a
SelectionFilter as an argument. The SelectionFilter has
some problems however (namely, -4 groups used for
logical operations does not work). There are some
workarounds in C# that you can find in this newsgroup.
