Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting a selection set, part of AutoCAD Add-ins Using VB.NET.
- [Instructor] In our last exercise,…we began using the editor input namespace…to be able to select an entity.…And we used within the editor,…the ability to have the prompt selection entity…result written back to us.…We get an object ID.…Very useful, but most of the time,…we want to work with more than just one entity,…or one object, at a time.…So, we're going to look at in this exercise…how we can use a selection set.…How do we build a selection set…within the editor input namespace?…So, we're going to go to our project…in our chapter six, 06-04 exercise.…
We're going to do 06-04 solution.…And go to our solution explorer, of course,…and open up our initialization class…once it's finished loading.…So, inside our initialization class,…we already have a command that began…or that we started here, the LISelectSet command…has been written for us.…We have the editor from the current drawing assigned…to the ed variable, and we have the database,…the current database, as well…as a transaction already written for us.…
And of course, we see the process…
