MultiSelect Method (IModelDocExtension)

Obsolete. Superseded by IModelDocExtension::MultiSelect2.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function MultiSelect( _
   ByVal Objects As System.Object, _
   ByVal AppendFlag As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal Data As System.Object _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDocExtension
Dim Objects As System.Object
Dim AppendFlag As System.Boolean
Dim Data As System.Object
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.MultiSelect(Objects, AppendFlag, Data)
System.int MultiSelect( 
   System.object Objects,
   System.bool AppendFlag,
   System.object Data
System.int MultiSelect( 
&   System.Object^ Objects,
&   System.bool AppendFlag,
&   System.Object^ Data


Array of selectable objects:
  • can be the same type of objects (e.g., an array of faces or an array of edges) or different types of objects (e.g., an array of entities of faces and edges )

  • if an object is not selected, then it is ignored

True to append the objects to the selection list, false to replace the current selection list with these objects
ISelectData object, Nothing, or null

Return Value

Number of objects selected in the model


If this now obsolete method is used to populate a selection box in a PropertyManager page, then IPropertyManagerPage2Handler9::OnSubmitSelection only fires when set to true and ISelectData::Mark is set to 0. 


Use IModelDocExtension::MultiSelect2 if you need IPropertyManagerPage2Handler9::OnSubmitSelection to fire when set to true and ISelectData::Mark is set to either a 0 or non-0 value.


The Callout property of the ISelectData object is not used by this method.
