    unsuccessful MultiSelect in VB.Net

    Lenny Yang

      Hi all,

      Here is the VB code. I have test it successful in SolidWorks VBA. but ,when I copy it in VB.net,it failed.

      So I try to  change  "Dim obj() As Object"  to "Dim obj() As Face2", it is OK when I select some faces in SolidWorks Part  document.

      But in practice, I can't change it to "face2". becuase, I don't know what type entity will be selected(it may faces/sketch/solid/edge......,even their combination).

      What should I do now?

      thank you very much!



      Sub main()


      Dim swAppp As SldWorks.SldWorks

      Dim Doc As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

      Dim SelMgr As SelectionMgr


      Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

      Set Doc = swApp.ActiveDoc

      Set SelMgr = Doc.SelectionManager

      If SelMgr.GetSelectedObjectCount = 0 Then Debug.Print "No selections found.": Exit Sub


      'Put the Selected object in an array

      Dim i As Integer

      Dim obj() As Object

      ReDim obj(SelMgr.GetSelectedObjectCount - 1)

      For i = 1 To SelMgr.GetSelectedObjectCount

          Set obj(i - 1) = SelMgr.GetSelectedObject6(i, -1)

      Next i



      'MultiSelect the object in "obj" array

      Dim seldata As SelectData

      Set seldata = Nothing

      Dim boolstatus As Boolean

      boolstatus = Doc.Extension.MultiSelect(obj, True, seldata)   'This code doesn't work in VB.Net


      End Sub
