The API continues to astonish me with its bizarre behavior.
Make a simple macro:
Dim swApp As Object Dim filters As Variant
Sub main() Set swApp = Application.SldWorks filters = swApp.GetSelectionFilters End Sub
I run this macro having opened a part and enabled the 'Vertices' filter. The VARIANT 'filters' returned contains *3* elements. One is the expected selection type ID for vertices (3), while the other two values (92, 110) don't event map to anything in the swconst.tlb (or swconst.h for that matter). Add the edges filter and you get 1 as expected, along with 46 and 108. Go one step further and filter faces and 2 is added to the array, along with 109.1 46 108
Perhaps I've missed something, but just how is this API call supposed to work?
