DeSelect Method (IFeature)

Deselects this feature.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function DeSelect() As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeature
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.DeSelect()
System.bool DeSelect()
System.bool DeSelect(); 

Return Value

True if the feature is deselected successfully, false if not



Use IModelDoc2::DeSelectByID instead of this method. This method does not work well when a PropertyManager page is open or a command is running. IModelDoc2::DeSelectByID handles selection correctly whether or not a command is running.
