Selectionset Woes
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:50:08 PM »
Greetings All,

Been a long time. I apologize before hand for not posting a snippet, but I riding shotgun down the interstate, trying to write some vba. So I'm posting from my phone.

What I'm trying to do is set a selectionset by window or fence, process the selection set then reset the selection set window for different items.

The problem is that after the initial selection I can never select anything else. I've tried clearing the selectionset, deleting it, set it to nothing and reseting in my outside loop but I can't get it to ever select anything on the second iteration of the loop.

I'm wondering if I've hit a hidden vba feature?

Try this method:

On Error Resume Next
        Set selSet = myDoc.SelectionSets.Add("Objects")
        If Err.Number <> 0 Then
            Set selSet = myDoc.SelectionSets.Item("Objects")
        End If
selSet.Highlight True

selSet.Highlight False
