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
