I never understood why the box of a crossing or window doesn't follow the angle of the UCS.

A lot of it has to do with the graphics api (not AutoCAD but the OpenGL/DirectX api's). In order for the application to get feedback from the user, the application feeds the graphics api a 'pick box' which can vary in size from the std pick box used by autocad (say 4 pixels square) to a selection window of given size by the user.
Now, given this pick box the application has to tell the grfx api to go into selection mode which creates a selection buffer, the grfx api then clips out any geometry (pixels) outside the box and returns a 'hit list' containing id numbers of the primitives which are mapped to autocad primitives that make up more complex objects, this way Autocad can find out what was selected and let you modify them.
You can see now how complex it could get if you tried to capture pixels in any direction but 'square' to the screen.
A work around could be to grab the rectangle and the model/scene and transform it to be square, do the selection thing and invert it back but there may be some subtle inaccuracies with doing this not to mention a performance hit.

Are you really sure about all this, or is it a lot of guesswork?

You can always type WP or CP at the "Select Objects" prompt, and select any irregular selection area you want.  The selection area can be pretty convoluted.  If it's possible to easily select any irregular area like that, why would it be any harder to create a rectangular box oriented with, say, the SNAPANG?

...

The part about how selection is accomplished yes, the accuracy of using irregular selection shapes no. Although it is possible to use irregular shapes it would take multiple passes or some mathematical gymnastics to get the correct primitives for the selection, especially if you had a curved edge in your selection shape.

I'll expand a bit on the selection process as performed by the grfx api for those interested. From here we'll call the host application using the grfx api the 'app' and the graphics api the 'grfx'.
Prior to selection, the app using the selection buffer must change the state of the grfx to 'selection' mode which draws all of the primitives to a special buffer (not to the screen) and gathers all of the objects drawn there.
Here's the process just using the std acad pickbox (cursor) which is about 4x4 pixels say -

1. The user picks a line say which sends a WM_MOUSEDOWN message, the app's window procedure catches and handles it appropriately. Depending on the state of the application it can handle this how it pleases, for now we'll say it is idle and will handle selection to highlight entities picked with the cursor in the editor (the client area of the main window where the grfx will draw its primitives).

2. Having caught the message the app has to tell the grfx it wants to do a sellection of the picked object. To do this the app must set the 'state' of the graphics to selection to draw to the selection buffer. To draw to this buffer (just like any other window) the app has to pass in of its viewing transformation, which also contains the view/model and clipping volume and finally maps this to a rectangle on the screen, generally the x and y size of our client rectangle/editor. In the case of the selection buffer we only want what's under the cursor so we pass in the x and y size of the 'pick box', the app assigns an id to each primitive (using named lists in the grfx) before it's drawn which the grfx uses to identify the drawn primitives. The grfx then draws the objects to the selection buffer, grabs a list of the ids it has drawn after 'clipping' and passes this list/array back to the app.
How does it get the id's? As the grfx has to calculate the colour of each pixel it draws to the buffer, in the selection mode it also assigns an id of each drawn primitive to each pixel within the selection rectangle/buffer, when you do a 'pick' or even a windowed selection you are just picking a rectangle/box of pixels and use the info store in the buffer mapped to that pixel.

3. On receiving the 'hit list' of objects drawn to the selection buffer (remembering the selection rect clips out all unwanted geometry outside of the rect passed in) the app iterates the list and handles it how it pleases, in Autocad's case it calls the ent->highlight() member function of the/each selected entity to tell it to draw itself highlighted. The app then redraws the scene in the normal rendering mode passing in all of the entities and now the ent's to be highlighted with the appropriate primitive line type to appear highlighted.

For autocad to use irregular selection with a polyline say, it would almost have to be only in 2d to keep the math simple and it would not need to use the selection buffer of the grfx, if it can do it with a 3d model (items that don't cross the polyline in the same plane) it would have to be doing its own projections to the polyline plane and then the clipping. Basically though the selction buffer is the most efficient way to collect selected entities IMO as this is what it is used and optimised for.

Cheers,
Mick.

Autocad can in fact select anything, in full 3D, with irregular windows.  But I notice that irregular windows can also select things that are not visible on the screen, while the normal rectangular windows cannot.  So this seems to imply that Autocad uses the grfx for normal windows, but does its own model parsing for irregular windows.  I don't notice any performance difference between the two, but I'm guessing I might with a much bigger drawing or with slower hardware.

In either case, the objects appear to be projected in into the plane of the current view to determine what gets selected. ##### Re: Examples of usage GRREAD - let's share

Not these days with the processing power we have, it may have been different back in 14/2000 though Quote

I have been playing with my own 3d modeller in ogl for a while and an irregular selection will be a 'feature' that is not very high on the list because of the obvious complications but as you state above that is probably how I'd approach it - project the primitive linework to the viewing plane and clip.

Here is one that I use to change the current elevation up or down by 2' just by gesturing up or down with the mouse.  I use it when I have to drawn contours manually.

Code: [Select]
`(defun c:ew(/ NewEL el1 DeltaEl)  (setq CurrElev (getvar "ELEVATION")        newDir (dkb_readMouse)  )  (if (minusp newDir) (setq NewEl -2) (setq NewEl 2))            (setvar "ELEVATION" (+ CurrElev NewEL))); end function ew(defun dkb_readMouse()    (setq firstY nil)              (while (= (setq grCode (car (setq grData (grread T 7 0)))) 5)         (setq grReturn (cadr grData))          (if (= grCode 5)              (progn                  (if (not firstY)                       (setq firstY (cadr grReturn)                             currDelta 0                        )                        (setq currDelta (- (cadr grReturn) firstY))                   )                    );progn then          );if          );end while)`

And one to adjust the elevation by a small increment by continually moving the mouse up or down

Code: [Select]
`(defun c:eew()  (dkb_mouseelev))(defun dkb_MouseElev()    (setq firstY nil          TotalY (getvar "VIEWSIZE")          NumSteps 50          YStep (fix (/ TotalY NumSteps))          DeltaElPerStep 0.05          CurrEL (getvar "ELEVATION")    )          (while (= (setq grCode (car (setq grData (grread T 7 0)))) 5)         (setq grReturn (cadr grData))          (if (= grCode 5)              (progn                  (if (not firstY)                       (setq firstY (cadr grReturn)                             currDelta 0                        )                        (setvar "ELEVATION"                           (+ CurrEl                              (* DeltaElPerStep                                 (fix (/(setq currDelta (- (cadr grReturn) firstY)) YStep))                             )                          )                        );setvar and end else                   ); end inner if                    );progn then          );if          );end while)`
And one to change the text value of a spot elevation by, you guessed it,  moving the mouse up or down.  The 'new text value' is shown in the modemacro box.  When the left mouse button is hit, the text string is changed to the modemacro value.

Code: [Select]
`(defun c:et()   (setq Ent1Name (car (entsel "\nPick Text to Edit "))    Ent1List (entget Ent1Name)    Ent1Elev (atof (cdr (assoc 1 Ent1List)))    OldMode (getvar "MODEMACRO")         OldElev (getvar "ELEVATION")   );setq   (setvar "MODEMACRO" (rtos Ent1Elev 2 2 ))    (setq firstY nil          TotalY (getvar "VIEWSIZE")          NumSteps 50          YStep (max (fix (/ TotalY NumSteps)) 1)          DeltaElPerStep 0.05          CurrEL (atof (getvar "MODEMACRO"))    )          (while (= (setq grCode (car (setq grData (grread T 7 0)))) 5)         (setq grReturn (cadr grData))          (if (= grCode 5)              (progn                  (if (not firstY)                       (setq firstY (cadr grReturn)                             currDelta 0                        )                        (setvar "MODEMACRO"                          (rtos (+ CurrEl                              (* DeltaElPerStep                                 (fix (/(setq currDelta (- (cadr grReturn) firstY)) YStep))                             )                          ) 2 2 )                        );setvar and end else                   ); end inner if                    );progn then          );if          );end while     (setq newEl (atof (getvar "MODEMACRO"))           newElStr (rtos newEl 2 2)           newEntList (subst (cons 1 newElStr) (assoc 1 ent1List) ent1List)     )     (setvar "ELEVATION" oldElev)     (setvar "MODEMACRO" oldMode)     (entmod newEntList)     (prin1)       );defun et`

Wow, what's with all the George Bush references in osmode-grvecs-lst? Kidding aside, I'll try to have a look this weekend, looks to be good stuff from the 30000 ft flyover Evgeniy! \|// Set goal. Experiment tirelessly until

Tested in ACAD2004, very nice. Keep up the good work.
Will try to look at the code this weekend.

Thanks
