instance.GetSelections3(Objects, ObjectTypes, SelMarks, DrViews, ComponentXForms)
void GetSelections3( 
   out System.object Objects,
   out System.object ObjectTypes,
   out System.object SelMarks,
   out System.object DrViews,
   out System.object ComponentXForms
void GetSelections3( 
&   [Out] System.Object^ Objects,
&   [Out] System.Object^ ObjectTypes,
&   [Out] System.Object^ SelMarks,
&   [Out] System.Object^ DrViews,
&   [Out] System.Object^ ComponentXForms


Array of selected objects

Array of selected object types as defined in swSelectType_e

Array of marks for the selected objects
Array of drawing views
Array of transforms for the selections' components



When a macro feature is inserted in-context and an entity on a different component is selected, you may need to know that component's transform.


If the assembly is the active document, then you can use IEntity::GetComponent or IComponent2::Transform2 to get the component's transform.


However, if the part for the component is open for editing and a macro feature is being edited, then you must use IMacroFeatureData::GetSelections3 to get the component's transform. This method returns the transform and the selection. If the selection belongs to the same part as the macro feature, then NULL is returned. See also Macro Features and Component Transforms.


See Accessing Selections that Define Features for additional details on using this method.
