Mirroring selection sets in Autocad VBA

Mirroring selection sets in Autocad VBA

Mirroring selection sets in Autocad VBA

Can selection sets be mirrored or copied as a group? I am using VB in Autocad 14.

RE: Mirroring selection sets in Autocad VBA


I wrote just now the code for mirroring a selection set and posted it on FAQ area.

I tested it about a dozen times on Acad2000 - looks OK.

Please try on Acad14 and let us see if any bugs show up.

Maybe you could revise it for COPY and tell us about it.


RE: Mirroring selection sets in Autocad VBA

Sorry, it was not appropriate as FAQ. Here is the code for you:

Sub Tigrek_MirrorSelectionSet()
    ' www.homescript.com
    ' This example mirrors all entities in a selection set
    ' made by picking on screen
    ' I wrote this code today and tested a dozen times
    ' but there may still be bugs - would appreciate feedback posts here
    Dim ssTigrek As AcadSelectionSet
    Set ssTigrek = ThisDrawing.SelectionSets.Add("TIGREK_SSET1")
    ' Add entities to a selection set by prompting user to select on the
    'get the points for mirror axis:
    Dim point1 As Variant
    point1 = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(, "Enter first point of mirror
axis: ")
    Dim point2 As Variant
    point2 = ThisDrawing.Utility.GetPoint(point1, "Enter second point: ")
    Dim mirrorObj As AcadEntity
    For I = 0 To ssTigrek.Count - 1
        Set mirrorObj = ssTigrek(I).Mirror(point1, point2)
End Sub
