    Hello ,
    My problem is like that.
    I want to know the type of an  object that I currently select.
    It can solve by using GetType method of the basecontainer object and Description class.
    But after the object has been made edittable, the object type become "base object",not the specific type like "Cube Object" or "Cone Object".
    What I have to do to know the selected object type after selecting it.

    Hi
    If I'm not wrong, once you make editable, there is no way to find out what kind of object is that.

    Use IsInstanceOf(TYPE_ID) or GetInfo() to determine the current type:

    if (baseobject->IsInstanceOf(Obone)) ...

    // For SplineObjects
    if (baseobject->GetInfo() & OBJECT_SPLINE) ...

    Once an object is made editable, its previous type will not be retrievable.

    Check out the Resource:res:description files in the for valid object types.
