IGetSelectionPointInSketchSpace2 Method (ISelectionMgr)

Gets the selection point projected on to the active sketch and returned in sketch space.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetSelectionPointInSketchSpace2( _
   ByVal Index As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Mark As System.Integer _
) As System.Double
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISelectionMgr
Dim Index As System.Integer
Dim Mark As System.Integer
Dim value As System.Double
value = instance.IGetSelectionPointInSketchSpace2(Index, Mark)
System.double IGetSelectionPointInSketchSpace2( 
   System.int Index,
   System.int Mark
System.double IGetSelectionPointInSketchSpace2( 
&   System.int Index,
&   System.int Mark



Index position with in the current list of selected items, where AtIndex ranges from 1 to ISelectionMgr::GetSelectedObjectCount2 (see Remarks)

  • -1 = All selections regardless of marks
  • 0 = only the selections without marks
  • Any other value that was used to mark and select an object

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of 3 doubles (see Remarks)
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.


The selection point is projected on to the currently active sketch, resulting in a z value of 0.00.

If a sketch is not currently active, then the return value is the same as that returned by ISelectionMgr::GetSelectionPoint2 or ISelectionMgr::IGetSelectionPoint2. You can determine if a sketch is active by checking for a null return value from IModelDoc2::GetActiveSketch2 or IModelDoc2::IGetActiveSketch2.


The index starts at 1. However, if you specify -1 for the Index argument, then the Mark argument is ignored and the dynamically highlighted view is selected if dynamic highlighting is turned on. See also IAssemblyDoc event DynamicHighlightNotify, IDrawingDoc event DynamicHighlightNotify, and IPartDoc event DynamicHighlightNotify.
