SetSelectionPoint2 Method (ISelectionMgr)

Sets the selection point in model space.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SetSelectionPoint2( _
   ByVal Index As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Mark As System.Integer, _
   ByVal X As System.Double, _
   ByVal Y As System.Double, _
   ByVal Z As System.Double _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISelectionMgr
Dim Index As System.Integer
Dim Mark As System.Integer
Dim X As System.Double
Dim Y As System.Double
Dim Z As System.Double
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.SetSelectionPoint2(Index, Mark, X, Y, Z)
System.bool SetSelectionPoint2( 
   System.int Index,
   System.int Mark,
   System.double X,
   System.double Y,
   System.double Z
System.bool SetSelectionPoint2( 
&   System.int Index,
&   System.int Mark,
&   System.double X,
&   System.double Y,
&   System.double Z



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 = Value that was used to mark and select an object

  • X
    x coordinate of the selection point
    y coordinate of the selection point
    z coordinate of the selection point

    Return Value

    True if the position of the selection point is set, false if not


    This method allows an application to provide an XYZ position to a selected object at the given index in the ISelectionMgr object. This XYZ position represents a world-coordinate location in the context of that ISelectionMgr object.

    The index starts at 1, even when using C++. 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.
