    selecting a hole face via API not working for some reason

    Danny Bradford

      Greetings,

      I thought I might start a new post as it is more direct to the issue. Most posts concerning selecting a face have either users select the face but in my case I have the feature in my grasp and getting the child face. I have not seen any examples of this yet.

      This is the core of the issue as I see it and I am at a loss. There is no reason this is not working:

       

      holeface = the_hole.GetFaces(0)

       

                  holesurf = holeface.IGetSurface

       

                  MsgBox(holesurf.IsCylinder)

       

                  sel_entity = holeface

       

                  boolstat = sel_entity.Select2(False, 1)

                  MsgBox(boolstat)

       

      The first message box reports True which means I have the correct face in my grasp but the second message box reports False which means it did not select.

       

      Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
