SelectAll Method (IModelDocExtension)

Selects all edges in a part, all components in an assembly, or all entities (by default, sketch entities, dimensions, and annotations) in a drawing.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub SelectAll() 
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDocExtension
void SelectAll()
void SelectAll(); 



This method behaves the same as box selecting everything in the graphics area of a part or assembly document or in a sheet of a drawing document.

To select entities different from the defaults, use selection filters. The See Also section contains links to methods related to selection filters.
