Modeling/Annotator Communication: Selecting Annotator Objects

Table of Contents

General Information

While writing a dialog in the context of the Annotation module the programmer needs to select Annotator objects with respect to a certain select focus. Also calling get_selection is using these Annotation select foci.

These foci must not be combined with select foci of other Creo Elements/Direct Modeling applications or the base product itself.

Annotator objects can be selected using the keywords

:selection requires a list of select foci.
:select-attribute is an optional keyword and can be set to

List of select foci
