    Thank you very much, Sebastian! I didn't notice that it is "build-in". (There's question how to create several selection tags and and data to them, but I don't need it right now...)

    Thank you one more time
    Andrzej

    I'm afraid it doesn't work for me. I don't know how to add some polygons (for example: 5, 10, 25, 30) to selection and write them do selectionTag. May I ask for help?

    thanks
    Andrzej

    Can you post some lines of code? Then we can figure out whats missing.

    Cheers, Sebastian

    I found something that works:

      
    tag = polyObj.MakeTag(Tpolygonselection)   
    bs = tag.GetBaseSelect()   
    # bs.SelectAll(0, polyObj.GetPolygonCount() - 1) # it doesn't work...  
      
    bs.SetAll([1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1]) # this one works, and selects polygons 0-3 and 8-11

    PS I'm a begginer for python, so maybe I'm making some terrible mistakes... :)

    After you changed the selection, please send an update message to the polygon object.

    polyObj.Message(c4d.MSG_UPDATE)

    Cheers, Sebastian

    I change lines to:

      
    tag = polyObj.MakeTag(Tpolygonselection)   
    bs = tag.GetBaseSelect()   
    bs.SelectAll(0, 10)  
      
    polyObj.Message(MSG_UPDATE)   
    print bs.GetCount() # it returns: -9 (???)  
    

    And still nothing. After making editable selectionTag is empty.

    tag = polyObj.MakeTag(Tpolygonselection) #wrong, here you create a new tag
    
      
    
    
    bs = polyObj.GetPolygonS() #correct, returns the already built-in polygon base selection

    print polyObj.GetPolygonCount()  # returns "84"

    bs.SelectAll(0,10)
    polyObj.Message(MSG_UPDATE)
    print bs.GetCount() # still returns "-9"

    Now after deleting: "tag = polyObj.MakeTag(Tpolygonselection)" there's no selectionTag after making object editable.

    I can confirm SelectAll seems to work not properly, but here is a code snippet which does
    exactly the same and should work fine:

        bs = polyObj.GetPolygonS() 
        for x in xrange(0, 10) :
            bs.Select(x) 
        polyObj.Message(c4d.MSG_UPDATE)
        c4d.EventAdd()
    

    Cheers, Sebastian

    Yes, now it works! It doesn't create selectionTag after making editable, but GetCount return proper value ("10") and GetAll() return correct list. (By the way it seems like GetAll() need some "max" parameter - which (I guess) is max number of elements in returned list)

    Thank you very much for your time and patience
