# I want to get the coordinates of the points I have selected "en"

• User Information:
Cinema 4D Version: 21.115
Platform: Windows ;
Language(s) : C++ ;
I've converted objects to polygons，
And selected a point

And print out the serial number of these points

How can I get the coordinates of these points

Here's my code

``````BaseDocument*doc = GetActiveDocument();

BaseObject * obj1 = doc->GetActiveObject();

if (obj1->GetType()!= Opolygon)
{
break;
}
PointObject *slpoint = ToPoint(obj1);
BaseSelect *pointsel = slpoint->GetPointS();

Int32 seg = 0, i, a, b;
while (pointsel->GetRange(seg++, LIMIT <Int32> ::MAX,&a,&b))
{
for ( i = a; i < b; i++)
{

ApplicationOutput("aa: @"_s, i);

}

}
``````

• hello,

I've added the tags and marked this thread as a question so when you considered it as solved, please change the state :)

you can use GetPointR to retrieve the points array pointer.

You will retrieve the point in object position so you have to multiply by the matrix of the object to retrieve the world coordinate of the point.

Watch out that your range could have only one point so be careful with the condition of the for loop and use inforior or equal to b

``````for (i=a; i<=b; ++i)
``````

Something like this will work

``````        PointObject *slpoint = ToPoint(obj1);
BaseSelect *pointsel = slpoint->GetPointS();
const maxon::Matrix opmg = slpoint->GetMg();

Int32 seg = 0, i, a, b;
while (pointsel->GetRange(seg++, LIMIT<Int32>::MAX, &a, &b))
{
for (i = a; i <= b; i++)
{
const maxon::Vector worldPointPosition = opmg * pointPosition ;

ApplicationOutput("aa index : @, object position @, wordl position @", i, pointPosition, worldPointPosition);

}

}

``````

非常感谢
我用另外一个办法解决了不用求矩阵
代码如下

``````PointObject *slpoint = ToPoint(obj1); //转换为点对象
BaseSelect *pointsel = slpoint->GetPointS();//获取选择的点

Int32 pointConst = slpoint->GetPointCount();//获取所有的点
Vector *points = slpoint->GetPointW();//获取所有点的坐标
Vector pt;
Int32 i;
for (i = 0; i < pointConst; i++)//利用for循环来不断读取所有点的数据
{
if (pointsel->IsSelected(i))//来判断当前的点是否选择住
{
pt += points[i];//若果选择 所有向量相加
}
}
``````

I'll write it in your way

Thank you very much.

Cheers!
