ProSelect() and silhouette edge

Good evening,


does anyone know how to use ProSelect() to let the user select a cylinder's silhouette edge on a drawing?


Imy application the user should be able to select two points on solidgeometry - then I create a broken view with ProDrawingViewBrokenVisibleAreaSet(). If I pass "point" or "axis" as filter string (first argument) to ProSelect() everything works fine. I want the user to be able to select a solid edge - that works if we are talking about a "sharp" edge. I cannot select a silhouette edge with Toolkit. Is that right? Or is there some sort of "hidden" filter available for ProSelect()?


Any experiences with this???


Regards,


Andreas

Andreas,
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by silhouette edge. Can you post a screenshot?

I have attached a picture with a screenshot for selecting a silhouette edge/surface.


And I want the user to be able to select this type of edge/surface...



Andreas

Hello sir,did you solved this problem? I am encounterring this problem too

Andreas,

silhouette edge selection in a drawing mode was on a wish list for good 15-20 years. Still waiting for PTC to enable it.

If  a silhouette edge selection is critical for your app - one of workarounds would be to make a x-section on a fly through the selected rotational surface axis and use cross-section's curves instead of silhouette edge for the selection. This is similar to what a pro/e user had to do prior wildfire releases.

HIH.
