API_​SelTypeID

Types of the selection.

    typedef enum {
        API_SelEmpty = 0,
        API_SelElems,
        API_MarqueePoly,
        API_MarqueeHorBox,
        API_MarqueeRotBox
    } API_SelTypeID;

 

Remarks

This enum is used when you get information about the current selection. See the ACAPI_Selection_Get function.

There are two basic type of selection methods in ARCHICAD:

  • The selection may be controlled by individually selected elements.
  • The other possibility is to rely on the marquee area.

The API_SelEmpty identifier means that no selection is actually used in ARCHICAD. The API_SelElems identifier corresponds to the first method when elements are individually selected. Other values identify that the selection is done by some kind of marquee shape.

 

Requirements

Version: API 1.3 or later
