    Hi
    There's an method called SendModellingCommand - There's a Command that's called

    MCOMMAND_GENERATESELECTION description: Set selection.
    

    That's not very informative - What I would like to know is -
    I have an Polygonobject and I want that the user is able to select Points or Polygons. The simplest method would be to send a modelling command with the clicking position, a vector and a selectionsize and the editor selects all the points/polygons. Can this be done with Coffee and the sendmodellingcommand - if not, I have to write these functions myself what would be slow and complicated, especially for polygons.
    Thanks in advance
    btw.: Where can I find a description of Message events and what the containers include?
     
    cya

    no you can´t and I doubt you can write your own functions for there is no access to the mouse pointer position in COFFEE. This is available thru C++ for example in a Tool Plugin.
