    I am trying to select the outline edges of currently selected Polygons. I tried to go the simple way with modelling command. But I cant get it to work. I have this Code but its not working. Any Ideas?
    greetings, Holger

    def main() :

        settings = c4d.BaseContainer()                 # Settings
        res = utils.SendModelingCommand(command = c4d.ID_MODELING_OUTLINE_SELECTION_TOOL,
                                        list = [selobj],
                                        mode = c4d.MODELINGCOMMANDMODE_POLYGONSELECTION,
                                        bc = settings,
                                        doc = doc)
        if res is False:
          print "Something went wrong."
        elif res is True:
          print "Command successfull."
        elif isinstance(res, list) :
          print "Here you get the newly created object(s)."

    if __name__=='__main__':

    Hi Holger,

    unfortunately ID_MODELING_OUTLINE_SELECTION_TOOL is marked private for a reason. There are things handled internally in a way, that it currently can not be used with SendModelingCommand(). Sorry!

    Look at the Neighbor class. Go through all edges in the object, if the edge has two neighbor polygons but only one is selected, then it is a border edge.
