This structure is used to search an element by coordinate. Only polygonal elements are accepted.

The type of the element must be polygonal, and passed in the type field. Filters can be passed also to skip instances with based on certain attributes, such as visibility, floor number, layer reference and so on. Refer to the ACAPI_Element_Filter function for more details. The location to be search on should be passed in the loc field. The search algorithm will ignore all the elements being on higher level than specified in the z parameter.

The first element will be returned, that:

  • match to the element type
  • pass the filter
  • the coordinate is an internal point of the polygon
  • has the highest level below z

See the APIAny_SearchElementByCoordID function.

New in API 26 From version 26 the type of the typeID member was changed into API_ElemType.



Version: API 2.1 or later
