    Macro to select all faces moved by feature "move face"

    Alexey Kovalov

      Hello all!

      Tell me please, how can I select all faces, moved by "move face"?

      I need to select and change color of faces.

      I modify macro https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/88370 to change color of faces, but it works with faces of boss-extrude or cut-extrude (for example) but  doesnt work with moved faces.

      Sub Main()


          Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

          Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

          Dim swPart As SldWorks.PartDoc

          Dim swFeat As SldWorks.Feature

          Dim swFaceFeat As SldWorks.Feature

          Dim swSelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

          Dim swFace As SldWorks.Face2

          Dim swEnt As SldWorks.Entity

          Dim faceArr As Variant

          Dim oneFace As Variant

          Dim status As Boolean

          Dim Area As Double

          Dim TotalArea As Double


          Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

          Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

          Set swPart = swModel

          Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager

              Set swFeat = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1)

              faceArr = swFeat.GetFaces: If IsEmpty(faceArr) Then Exit Sub

              For Each oneFace In faceArr

                  Set swFace = oneFace

                  Set swEnt = swFace

                  Set swFaceFeat = swFace.GetFeature


                  If swFaceFeat Is swFeat Then

               vProps = swFace.GetMaterialPropertyValues2(1, Empty)

               vProps(0) = 0.5

               vProps(1) = 1

               vProps(2) = 0.5

               vProps(3) = 0

               vProps(4) = 0

               vProps(5) = 0

               vProps(6) = 0

               vProps(7) = 0

               vProps(8) = 0

               swFace.SetMaterialPropertyValues2 vProps, 1, Empty



      swModel.ClearSelection2 True

                  End If



      End Sub


      Is it possible to selet these faces?
